RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, Aug. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vinci Partners Investments Ltd. (NASDAQ: VINP) ("Vinci Partners,” “Vinci,” "we," "us," or "our"), the controlling company of a leading alternative investment platform in Brazil, announced today that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of SPS Capital (“SPS”, “Team”), a leading independent alternative asset manager focused on the Special Situations segment in Brazil.
As a result of the closing, Vinci will add approximately R$2.0 billion in assets under management, distributed across three vintages in SPS’s flagship strategy.
“We are thrilled to announce the closing of the acquisition of SPS Capital,” said Alessandro Horta, Vinci Partners’ CEO. “SPS will enhance Vinci’s product offering, adding a new strategy in which we currently do not operate. We believe that combining Vinci’s distribution capabilities with the Team’s extensive experience and track record in the Special Situations sector presents a key opportunity in fundraising for future vintages and complementary products.”
The acquisition of SPS Capital strengthens Vinci’s FRE quality, stability, and visibility for future earnings results and enriches Distributable Earnings’ composition, due to the recurring and high-visibility nature of SPS’ revenue stream, coming from funds with long-term lockups and a typical private market fee structure.
We expect low-to-mid single-digit short term accretion in Distributable Earnings per share with the Transaction, with upside to high single-digit medium term accretion as current funds are deployed, and a new flagship vintage is launched.
The Transaction, which was announced on July 28, 2022, closed today and has an initial cash component, with an additional consideration in VINP’s Class A common stock through an earnout structure to be paid in 2027, up to a maximum number of 1.7 million shares, subject to the achievement of certain fundraising and incremental management fee revenue targets.
