Investcorp, a global alternative investment firm, has agreed to sell its stake in United Talent Agency (UTA), a global talent and entertainment company, to EQT Private Equity. Investcorp says the sale represents a ‘highly successful investment’ for the firm and its institutional investors.

As a champion of entertainers, content creators and artists, UTA partners with talent across sports, entertainment, media, and technology sectors and with major corporate brands. Investcorp invested in UTA in 2018 alongside the Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSP Investments) and other institutional co-investors. Since Investcorp’s investment, UTA more than tripled its EBITDA through exceptional organic growth and several strategic acquisitions driven by its mission of always providing clients outstanding service and staying at the forefront of the industry. 

Investcorp supported UTA’s management team as they expanded their services and geographic footprint amid rapidly evolving innovation in content creation and distribution. The Company entered sports representation through its acquisition of KLUTCH Sports, digital influencer management through its acquisition of DBA and brand consulting through its acquisition of MediaLink. The Company also entered the European market through its recent acquisition of Curtis Brown Group.
