What’s missing from your IPO industry assessment?

IPO activity all but stopped in 2020, as the investment community grew wary of the effects of COVID-19 on economies. No matter how deserving a business was of flotation, momentum was halted by concerns of when a ‘new normal’ of working patterns and trade would set in. Recently, sentiment has changed. Flotations picked up again during the second half of 2021, and now in 2022 the mood is decidedly optimistic. Business leaders have their eyes on fast rebounding economies, buoyant market indices and the opportunity once again to take their businesses public. As a result, global IPOs are expected to hit back this year. With GlobalData’s new whitepaper, ‘IPOs in Consumer and Retail: 5 must-include elements for your prospectus industry report’, you can explore exactly what is needed in the essential literature.

Located in Deansgate, the hotel opened in May this year after completing a three-year conversion programme.

The hotel features ad advanced gym, which is currently occupied by fitness studio Trib3, and a contemporary F&B offering.

Following the acquisition, EPISO 5 Fund plans to rebrand the hotel to YOTEL, a lifestyle brand with a network of 18 hotels operating across Europe, Asia, and North America.

The property will be operated by hotel advisory firm Hamilton Hotel Partners.

Financial terms of the transaction are not disclosed.

It is the first asset of the EPISO 5 Fund’s new $582.8m (€500m) hotel investment strategy in Manchester.

Tristan Capital Partners investment executive director Kristian Smyth said: “This acquisition represents the first step in our wider hotel strategy, and we are very excited to have started with a hotel of this quality.

“The acquisition is our first alongside Hamilton Hotel Partners and we expect to continue to grow this relationship.”

“Funds advised by Tristan have been actively pursuing hospitality opportunities with an emphasis on the UK and Spain and we are focused on acquiring assets which we believe will fit into either our core-plus or opportunistic funds.

“Our objective is to invest in excess of €500m over the next 12 months and we are currently in discussions regarding a number of transactions in this space.”

Greenberg Traurig, PWC, Workman and HVS advised the Fund in relation to the acquisition.
