Private Equity Track record
  • Civica
    UK / Private Equity



    Civica is a leading software provider which significantly expanded its international presence and key product offering during our investment. Following our investment in 2008, through a public to private transaction, Civica continued its strong track record of organic growth in revenue and EBITDA, driven by a combination of sustained software sales from their market-leading product portfolio and the roll-out of cloud-based solutions in all markets. Further growth came from up-selling services to existing customers, including specialist outsourcing, such as its IT-enhanced BPO proposition.


    • Sales grew by over 80% from £127m to £230m
    • 10 acquisitions in the UK, Australia and New Zealand
    • Increased employees from 1,350 to over 2,000, approximately 60% of which are in the UK
    “With 3i as a partner, we‘ve been able to strengthen the business as well as grow our footprint, both in the UK and internationally.” Simon Downing, CEO, Civica
