The shareholders of World Trade Group (WTG), a leading international provider of business-to-business events, specialist training courses, online lead generation services and business conferences to an international client base, have sold the company to the private equity operator GCP Capital Partners in a US$47 million buyout led by the incumbent CEO, Andrew Brown and his senior team. The price paid represents a multiple of over 8 times operating profits.

WTG is focused on events in global growth sectors such as energy and pharmaceuticals and has been featured in the Sunday Times International Track 100 as one of the UK's fastest growing international companies.

GCP Capital Partners currently manages five private equity funds totaling US$1.9 billion in committed capital, consisting of three US private equity funds, a European private equity fund and a US venture capital fund.

Oaklins Cavendish, based in the UK, advised the seller in this transaction, running a structured sale process which was designed to accommodate a significant number of strategic and private equity acquirors.
