Hyperion sale could involve a slice of the business sold off, according to reports 

Morgan Stanley is helping Hyperion to find a buyer for 25% of the business, according to reports.

Reuters reports that the sale of a minority stake could see the firm valued at £1bn.

The minority stake Hyperion sale would be used to fund their global expansion. 

US investment firm General Atlantic owns 35% of the business and the rest is owned by employees.

A minority stake deal could see the business valued at ten times EBITDA. It is thought the stake could appeal to private equity funds and sovereign wealth funds looking to diversify assets.

Last year, an Insurance Times analysis reported on Hyperion’s leverage and its integration progress. 

Hyperion is led by founder David Howden (pictured).
