Bregal Sagemount (“Sagemount”), a leading growth-focused private equity firm, today announced a strategic growth investment in Enhesa (the “Company”), a global leader in regulatory and sustainability information. As part of the transaction, Sagemount will acquire ICG’s minority interest in Enhesa, with existing investor CGE Partners (“CGE”) retaining its majority interest in the company. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
With global headquarters in Brussels, Belgium and US headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, Enhesa empowers multinational corporations worldwide to help create a more sustainable future by making a positive environmental impact and ensuring the health and safety of employees and customers. Bringing together some of the world’s most comprehensive datasets, AI-powered analytics and renowned experts in global operations, products, chemical management compliance and sustainability, Enhesa provides actionable regulatory information in over 40 languages and in more than 300 jurisdictions, backed by a staff of more than 100 in-house legal advisors. In navigating the rapidly evolving regulatory environment, Enhesa helps organizations confidently meet their compliance and sustainability needs now and into the future.
“We are very excited to partner with Sagemount as we begin our next phase of growth,” said Peter Schramme, CEO of Enhesa. “With the support of Sagemount and CGE and their deep industry expertise, we believe we are well positioned to continue to invest in our current offering while accelerating coverage of new content, use cases and customer verticals.”
“We see tremendous growth for Enhesa going forward, based on the company’s strong product market fit and tangible returns for customers,” said Pavan Tripathi, Partner at Sagemount. “Enhesa has an impressive track record of continually nurturing and growing its client relationships, expanding its new content offering and geographic coverage through organic and inorganic growth initiatives. We look forward to working with Peter Schramme, the Enhesa and CGE team.”
David Greenbaum, Vice President at Sagemount, added: “For companies that do business, manufacture and sell globally, Enhesa is by far the leading third-party content provider that monitors relevant environmental, health and safety (“EHS”) regulations and other editions in the company much more quickly and accurately than in-house teams or different regional third-party content providers.”
“Since acquiring the company in 2020, working with Enhesa has been extremely fruitful. Under CGE ownership to date, Enhesa has significantly grown its business, extending its industry-leading regulatory content to include product compliance and sustainability disclosures in addition to EHS. And on top of that, five strategic add-on acquisitions were made,” commented CGE. “We look forward to continuing to support Enhesa in its next growth chapter together with Sagemount.”
Sagemount’s investment was led by Pavan Tripathi, Sandeep Swaminathan, David Greenbaum, Harrison Boyajian and Stephanie Li. Sagemount received advice from Raymond James and Goodwin Procter. Enhesa and CGE were advised by Houlihan Lokey and Travers Smith.
