Nov 26 2007 | 12:18pm ET

U.K.-based private equity shop Endless is expanding its reach to the Emerald Isle and has appointed two senior advisers, John Kernohan and Richard Gillan, to lead the expansion.

The firm’s initial focus will be on investing in medium-sized businesses in Northern Ireland. The second phase of the firm’s expansion into Ireland includes targeting the Dublin advisory and investment community with a new private equity offering.

"Richard and I are very excited to be leading Endless into Ireland where the demand for a buyout fund with a success rate like Endless’ is evident,” said Kernohan. “We look forward to working closely with our advisory contacts in Northern Ireland, and believe that our offering will prove valuable in unlocking the potential of some of our local corporates.”

 Endless was established in December 2005 and have raised a fund of £135 million (US$278 million) to invest in management buy-outs and turnaround investment opportunities.
