02-06-2017. Mediterrania Capital Partners, a regional private equity firm focused on growth investments for SMEs in North Africa and Sub-Saharan countries, is pleased to announce that it has won the “Special Recognition for PE House of the Year, Regional Investor – North Africa” at the Private Equity Africa Awards 2017 (PEA Awards).

The final winners were chosen by an independent panel of leading industry professionals with representation from CDC, HarbourVest, IFC, LPEQ, Hamilton Lane, Rede Partners, Aon Hewitt, Swedfund, Sarona Asset Management and Cebile Capital.

The Awards attracted over 120 self-entries and were complemented by recommendations from the PEA editorial team and supported by industry data. The nominations were in partnership with the London Business School Private Equity Institute.

This is the second consecutive year that Mediterrania Capital Partners receives a PE Africa Award. At the 2016 edition, Mediterrania Capital won “Portfolio Company of the Year” for Cash Plus, a money transfer company based in Morocco.

Albert Alsina, CEO and Managing Partner at Mediterrania Capital Partners, said: “Being recognised with a PE Africa Award for the second consecutive year gives us the confidence to continue working on the same direction, helping companies reach their next level of growth with the right implementation of our value creation model, while focusing on responsible investments that create wealth for the region and its communities.”

Gail Mwamba, the Awards Chair and Editor of Private Equity Africa, said: “The 2017 Awards have demonstrated that astute dealmakers and advisors can deliver strong private equity deals to global standards across the continent, despite challenging macro-economic conditions. We were hugely impressed by the calibre of all the entries this year, a remarkable achievement against challenging conditions.”

“The results that the award winners have achieved in the last year truly demonstrate the immense opportunity in African private equity and the resilience of the industry. Congratulations to Mediterrania Capital Partners and all the winners for this year and we look forward to gathering again next year.”
