Mentha Capital buys majority stake in KP&T

21 Jun 2012

Benelux-focused buyout house Mentha Capital has picked up a majority stake in the recruitment agency KP&T Projectadvies.

The company specialises in finding staff for technical companies and government agencies, and employs more than 200 people.

Mentha founder Gijs Botman said, “We are fully committed to KP&T’s business model, which is built around the scarcity of good technical professionals and the increasing flexibility of the labour market.

“There’s been a strong synergy between us and KP&T’s founders and management team from day one of our negotiations.

“Both parties value a pragmatic entrepreneurial style, placing the customer first. We’re delighted to be building on this with the existing team.”

Mentha said it would be supporting the company’s management and founders who would remain involved in the ongoing development of the business as shareholders.

The mid-market firm was founded in 2006 and had raised its first fund by the end of 2007 following a start-up period of deal-by-deal funding, and is currently investing from its third buyout vehicle.
