Source Intelligence (SI), a supply chain compliance solutions specialist, has received a USD17.5 million investment from Kayne Partners to fund ongoing growth of its network and to meet increased demand for its information platform.
Kayne Partners is the growth private equity group of Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, a Los Angeles-based alternative investment firm managing more than USD22 billion in assets. Piper Jaffray & Co acted as exclusive financial advisor and placement agent for Source Intelligence.
Source Intelligence's platform, which is used by many Fortune 500 customers globally, is designed to help companies meet increasingly strict regulations regarding conflict minerals, restricted (chemical) substances, and other sustainability and environmental issues.
