London, 6 December 2013

GP Bullhound, the technology investment bank, has acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Newlisi S.p.A. on its latest financing round bringing in new investor Beautiful Mind Capital Ltd, a European-focused Chinese private equity fund, who joins Newlisi’s existing investors, 360 Capital, Atlante Ventures and Micheli Associati.

Our disruptive technology combined with their experience and dedication resulted in a highly competitive process and a successful transaction for all parties.'

Diana Saraceni, General Partner of 360 Capital, added 'We are very excited to welcome Beautiful Mind Capital as a co-investor in Newlisi as we build out our industrial and municipal applications.

Newlisi is the developer and provider of a proprietary technology process that disaggregates sludge coming from wastewater after primary and secondary biological treatment for industrial and municipal customers. The technology uses a multi-stage chemical process to break down sludge into an eluate, water and carbon dioxide. The eluate is then recycled through the biological treatment process of the main wastewater plant to eliminate the sludge, making this a zero sludge process. Newlisi is based in Milan, Italy and was founded in 2011.
