Pemberton supports Inflexion’s re-investment in K2 Partnering Solutions


Pemberton, a leading alternative credit specialist, has provided financing to support Inflexion’s re-investment in global technology staffing and consulting specialist, K2 Partnering Solutions (“K2”). To support Inflexion’s re-investment, Pemberton is using an innovative cross-fund financing structure through its Senior Loan and Mid-Market Debt strategies.

K2 is a global leader in the provision of human capital, talent and solutions to global corporations and systems integrators operating in the enormous and high-growth enterprise resource planning (ERP) and cloud technology environments. The company serves over 520 clients globally from its 750,000 contractors across 19 offices in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific. K2 operates in a large addressable market which is growing rapidly, offering considerable opportunities for organic growth as well as market consolidation.

Established in 1997 and headquartered in London, K2’s proprietary database of professionals, accumulated over the last 25 years, and its K2 Connect technology platform underpin its market leading position.

Pemberton’s financing to support Inflexion’s re-investment in K2 follows the financing provided for K2 Partnering Solutions’ acquisition of Marlin Green in 2021.

We are delighted to be supporting K2 and Inflexion again, as the company embarks on the next phase of its growth journey. Led by an excellent management team, K2 has performed very strongly during our relationship, with further opportunity to capitalise on robust end-market demand and consolidation of a fragmented market. Pemberton’s ability to access diverse pools of capital, has helped provide a cost effective and flexible financing structure that will support the Group’s M&A ambitions. We very much look forward to working with the company and Inflexion to help deliver their growth ambitions.

– Richard Meehan, Managing Director at Pemberton

We’re delighted to continue the partnership with Pemberton in supporting K2 through the next phase of growth. Their strong knowledge of the business and excellent relationships with management make the Pemberton team ideal backers alongside Inflexion as K2 continues to scale globally, organically and through M&A.

– Sam McPhail, Assistant Director at Inflexion
