McDermott Advises Kpler On ARR Financing For Strategic Growth Investment


McDermott Will & Emery advised Insight Partners, Five Arrows and Kpler on the Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) financing obtained from Bain Capital Credit and Apax Credit. Kpler, a leading provider of technology-led data, analytics and market insight, has agreed on a strategic growth investment led by Five Arrows and Insight Partners.

In doubling its ARR in the last 18 months and conducting two self-funded acquisitions (ClipperData & JBC Energy) since last September, Kpler has positioned itself as a leading firm in the next generation data and analytics space.

Kpler creates technology-led data, analytics and insight that bring transparency to dynamic markets characterised by opaque and incomplete information, such as commodity markets.

Insight Partners is a global software investor partnering with high-growth technology, software, and Internet startup and ScaleUp companies that are driving transformative change in their industries.

With assets under management of approximately €4.9 billion, Five Arrows corporate private equity is part of Rothschild & Co’s Merchant Banking business which manages over €18 billion globally, with offices in Paris, London, New York, Los Angeles, and Luxembourg.

McDermott’s cross-border team was led by partner Aymen Mahmoud (London) and supported by partners Samantha Koplik (New York), Pierre-Arnoux Mayoly (Paris), counsel Shirin Deyhim (Paris), senior associate Nicholas Jupp (London), associates Rachel Crooks (Dallas), Clarisse de Roux (Paris), Antoine Venier (Paris) and trainee solicitors Bethany Drayton (London) and Adrien Ledoux (Paris).
