Private equity firm invests in Jack Wills


Inflexion Private Equity, the midmarket private equity investor,
has taken a minority stake in Jack Wills, the British preppy
clothing retailer. Jack Wills positions itself as the UK’s
Abercrombie & Fitch. Its first store opened in 1999 in Salcombe,
and today Jack Wills has 20 stores and strong online and mail
order sales. Inflexion will work with the existing management
team to provide capital and support for the next growth stage,
particularly expansion of the brand in Japan and the US.

Amanda Luckett led the transaction on behalf of Inflexion, and
Turner will be joining the board. The terms of the deal were not
disclosed.
