Creative Car Park Limited / Inflexion Private Equity

Cavendish Corporate Finance, the UK’s leading mid-market M&A firm, and part of the finnCap Group, have successfully advised on the buyout of Creative Car Park Limited (CCP) by Inflexion Private Equity.
Based in London and founded in 2005, CCP was the UK’s first car park operator to offer a fully automated number plate recognition technology enforcement service. The firm’s offering ensures CCP’s clients’ customers can park easily by preventing misuse as well as freeing up staff time from monitoring parking. CCP’s low-cost installation model makes it highly scalable and well suited to cater for the nation’s large car park base. The company employs 85 people and is an approved member of the British Parking Association.
This deal illustrates how its recent merger with finnCap has helped to fashion a Group with an unrivalled breadth of services where we were able to provide both M&A and debt advisory services .
The Cavendish team was led by John Farrugia, Partner and Head of Technology as well as Alistair Hay, Partner and Head of Debt Advisory.
John Farrugia commented: “We are delighted to have advised on the buyout of Creative Parking. Inflexion, with its track record of helping businesses accelerate their expansion and better serve their customers, is definitely the right partner for CCP at this stage of its growth.”
Sam Smith, CEO, finnCap Group plc, commented: “This deal is a reflection of the strength and in-depth sector knowledge of our team as well as our corporate finance skills. We are delighted to have assisted in the process. Having Cavendish as part of finnCap Group now allows us to not only help UK entrepreneurs and growth business source debt and equity scale-up funding for their expansion plans, but also to advise business and financial institutions on acquisitions and disposals. This breadth of service is unmatched in the midmarket and we are committed to giving UK growth companies the best service we can to foster their development and boost their role in driving the growth of the UK economy.”
