Ideiasnet Announces The Acquisition Of 18.2% Of Ideasnet FIP I By Paul Capital In A Transaction That Values The Fund At R$ 435 Million

RIO DE JANEIRO, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ideiasnet announces the acquisition by Paul Capital of an 18.2% share in 'Ideiasnet FIP I' which holds stakes in 6 of Ideiasnet's 11 invested companies. The transaction values the fund at R$ 435 million and generates proceeds to Ideiasnet of R$ 79 million

"We have been tracking the development of Ideiasnet and its portfolio companies since 2009 and we strongly believe in Ideiasnet management's ability to capture significant additional value from the existing portfolio over the next 3-4 years" says Brian Sullivan, partner of Paul Capital in New York City.

Proceeds from the transaction will allow Ideiasnet to conclude a capital increase in portfolio company Padtec together with BNDES as well as accelerate its strategy of launching a new generation of growth equity funds focused on technology related companies in Brazil.  

"This is the twelfth consecutive portfolio transaction executed by the current Ideiasnet management team and implies an Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 46% for the fund. This secondary purchase demonstrates an innovative liquidity option for mature, well-managed venture capital funds in Brazil" says Sami Haddad CEO of Ideiasnet.
