Inspired Energy is one of the UK’s top energy intermediaries, helping commercial, industrial and public sector clients purchase energy at the best rates. Inspired Energy is currently listed on the AIM in London.
We first invested in Inspired Energy in 2011, because it was highly scalable with strong traction in the market. We liked the fact it had recurring revenues and good cashflows, so we led a pre-IPO round and later floated the company. After Inspired Energy went public, we helped them to build out their Finance department and set themselves up for long-term, sustainable growth.
Inspired Energy has continued to grow, and with the backing of supportive shareholders has made its own investments and acquisitions in the energy sector.
“Praetura just ‘get it’. They saw the opportunity, arranged pre-IPO funding and then listed the business which allowed us to pursue our buy and build strategy and create significant shareholder value. Along the way, Praetura have filled CFO, NED, Commercial Development and Chairman roles… They’ve really gone the extra mile for us”
