Jamieson is pleased to announce that it has advised the management team of Kynetec, a leader in agricultural and animal health market research, data and insights, on the sale of the business to US-based Paine Schwartz Partners from Inflexion. The transaction follows a nearly five-year partnership with Inflexion which delivered strong UK and international returns.

“Following a successful last five years with Inflexion, we are very excited to continue our journey with Paine Schwartz Partners.  The investment by Paine Schwartz will provide us resources to capture opportunities, while bringing us a partner with deep agribusiness experience and expertise.  We look forward to working closely with the Paine Schwartz team to continue building out our offerings, capabilities and customer base while extending our leadership in agriculture and animal health market research.  A special thanks to John, Tom, and Alison at Jamieson for their tremendous support and tireless efforts through the process.”
