Alan Devine, the Company's Chair, said:

"As I mentioned at the Company's AGM in March, the Board has undertaken extensive due diligence in respect of the Transaction.  We are delighted that the Transaction is not going to result in any changes to: (i) the Company's management and administration services; (ii) the Company's investment management process; or (iii) the personnel managing and servicing the Company. 

The Company will now be known as Patria Private Equity Trust plc to align more closely to the Patria brand. This is an exciting period for the Company as we continue to rely upon the existing attributes of our Manager whilst also reaping the benefits of Patria's wider geographical reach and private equity experience thus enabling us to build upon the Company's growth and performance since its establishment in 2001.

The Board is excited for the next stage of the Company's journey, and what Patria's involvement will bring."
