Man Group plc Announces Completion of Acquisition of Silvermine Capital Management LLC

Man Group plc ("Man Group") announced today that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of Silvermine Capital Management LLC (“Silvermine” or the “Company”), a Connecticut-based leveraged loan manager with $3.8 billion of funds under management across nine active collateralised loan obligation (“CLO”) structures as of 30 November 2014 (the “Acquisition”).

20 January 2015

Commenting on the completion of the acquisition, Mark Jones, co-CEO of Man GLG, stated, “Silvermine enhances Man GLG’s existing credit business and provides increased expertise in the robust US credit markets, while benefitting from Man Group’s access to capital, global distribution platform and highly sophisticated infrastructure and framework. This transaction also strengthens Man Group’s commitment to expanding its US presence and complements an M&A strategy focused on identifying high-quality businesses that represent a strong strategic, structural and cultural fit.”

With the transaction now completed, Silvermine will be integrated into Man GLG, and will complement Man GLG’s existing credit business. Silvermine’s team will remain in place under the leadership of two of the firm’s founders, G. Steven Kalin and Richard F. Kurth, who will continue to work alongside the other co-founders Aaron Meyer and Jonathan Marks.

Silvermine is wholly-owned by the firm’s founders and senior staff members and is based in Stamford, Connecticut. The team of 17 focuses exclusively on managing US levered credit portfolios and, since inception in 2005, has executed 16 separate transactions totalling $6.7 billion.
