Integrated property services provider SJA Group has secured a £9.1 million investment from private equity firm Key Capital Partners. The investment will enable SJA Group, which has previously made several acquisitions, to capitalise on considerable growth opportunities in its sector.
SJA Group was founded in 2010 by Adrian Deane and Sam Prett and is based in Sidcup, Kent. The company’s core offerings include front-of-house concierge services and interior and exterior cleaning for commercial landlords and tenants.
In 2020, the group expanded with the acquisition of Regency Real Estate, in a deal that expanded the managing agent services the firm could offer to property owners. The group then acquired Enecto in 2021, broadening its services into hard facilities management, including mechanical, electrical and building services.
The new investment sees Leeds-based Key Capital Partners take on a significant minority stake in the business. The deal represents the sixth investment from the firm’s KCP IX fund and its third in integrated property services, after investments in Total Integrated Solutions and Smarter Services.
KCP Partner James Excell commented: "We are excited to partner with SJA. The team have built a highly competitive end-to-end service offering to meet the increasing demands from commercial property clients. The market in which the group operates in is large and possesses credible growth opportunities, which were key considerations for our investment."
Following the investment, SJA’s management team, comprising co-founders Adrian Deane and Sam Prett, alongside Phil Dale (Regency CEO), Sam Stokes (Regency COO), Alan Sillince (Enecto operations director) and James Lyons (SJA operations director), will remain in place. The management team will be supported by incoming non-executive chair Colin Dobell.
SJA co-founder Sam Prett said: "On behalf of the SJA Board, we are delighted to be partnering with Key. Their understanding of SJA’s business model and strong cultural fit with the team were important considerations when choosing them as our investment partner.”
"Key share our passion for providing high-quality services and their track record of supporting high-growth SMEs leaves SJA Group well positioned to capitalise on future growth opportunities."
