Partners Group exits investment in Cabot Credit Management, a leader in the UK
debt purchasing industry

Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, announced today
that the firm has exited its investment in Cabot Credit Management to an
affiliate of J.C. Flowers & Co. Partners Group, on behalf of its clients,
invested into Cabot in April 2011, partnering with AnaCap Financial Partners
to facilitate the merger of Cabot Financial with Apex Credit Management. The
transaction agreements have been signed, and the transaction is expected to
complete imminently.

After successfully integrating both businesses over the past years, Cabot
Credit Management today has over GBP 7.7 billion in assets under management
and the company services more than 3.5 million customer accounts.

David Layton, Managing Director at Partners Group who served on Cabot's Board
of Directors, comments: "Through the merger of Cabot Financial and Apex Credit
Management, we established Cabot as the premiere acquirer and manager of
consumer debt in the UK. The company's operational performance post-merger,
with EBITDA having increased by 23% over the past year, reflects the
successful integration in combination with stringent cost management. Equally
important, we have been particularly pleased with Cabot's outstanding culture
of ethical, fair and responsible collections practices."
