Endless provides financial investment to corporate divestments and turnarounds. Founded in 2005, the Leeds-based firm has four offices across England. Endless currently has funds of £300 million under management and is investing from its £164 million Fund II.  Other Endless investments include Crown Paints and Amco Group.

Endless was advised on the deal by Robin Johnson, partner at Eversheds, and Gordon Singer, partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers.
