Pamlico Capital (“Pamlico”) and executive Kurt Reisenberg announced today that they have formed a platform (“Datos Acquisitions”) to invest in market-leading information services companies, with a focus on long-term equity value creation. Pamlico has committed up to $150 million of equity to help Datos Acquisitions pursue investments in companies that provide data, insights and advisory services, including those that serve key corporate functions (e.g., Finance, Human Resources, Sales, or Legal & Compliance).
Kurt Reisenberg said, “In an increasingly data-driven world, firms that provide analysis, benchmarks, and insights – along with the advice and decision support tools to make them actionable – will become even more indispensable to their customers. I share a perspective with Pamlico on unique ways to manage and grow these companies to build scale and create value faster than the broader industry.”
“Information services is a dedicated focus area for Pamlico, and we are excited to partner with Kurt to further invest in the sector,” remarked Scott R. Stevens, Pamlico Partner. Pamlico Principal Jay Henry added, “We believe Kurt’s experience at CEB, Gartner, and Winsight will enable him to identify attractive information services companies and partner with them to accelerate their growth trajectory. We are thrilled to work with Kurt once again.”
