Cinven wins two awards at Private Equity News awards ceremony
Cinven was presented with two awards at an event hosted by Private Equity News, the private equity industry publication.
The European Exit of the Year Award went to Amadeus. The judges commented; ‘At a time when other IPO exits were being pulled last year, the listing of travel booking company Amadeus, which raised €1.44 billion, and subsequent share offerings gave some hope to the industry that the IPO exit route was not dead.’
The Hall of Fame / Lifetime Achievement Award went to Cinven Chairman, Robin Hall. The judges commented; ‘Robin Hall spent more than twenty years as Managing Partner of Cinven, during which he built the former investment arm of the UK coal miners’ pension fund into one of the biggest private equity firms in Europe.’
