Goldman Sachs invests in Perseus

Perseus, a managed services provider of high-speed connectivity, has announced a $20.5 million investment by Goldman Sachs for a minority stake in its global technology business. The capital will allow Perseus to accelerate expansion of its global managed services network.

“We see a great opportunity in the financial sector in general, and Perseus in particular,” said Terry Doherty at Goldman Sachs. “Not only is their business performance exceptional, but they have the potential to dramatically shift the way that the global markets engage by introducing faster and more secure managed services to the industry.”

“The investment by Goldman Sachs is an important accelerator of our business. It enables us to maintain our leadership position in product and service innovation, while more rapidly expanding our global network. This ensures that we continue to meet and exceed our customers’ performance objectives around the world,” said Dr. Jock Percy, CEO of Perseus.
