Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, has recently closed a direct investment in Santillana on behalf of its clients together with its investment partner DLJ South American Partners. This will further back Santillana's presence in Latin America, with a focus on Brazil and Mexico, and support the consolidation of its leadership in the educational and general publishing sector in the region.
Santillana is the leading publisher in the educational text book and general publishing sectors in Latin America and Spain. The company has an extensive footprint in the former market and holds the #1 market share position in educational publishing in most of the countries in which it operates. Partners Group plans to further support Santillana's expansion strategy by leveraging its global industry network.
