Global investment firm KKR and premium Southeast Asian private educator, Taylor's Education Group ("TEG"), today announced the signing of agreements under which KKR will acquire a minority stake in Taylor's Schools. Taylor's Schools owns and operates six award-winning international schools - Garden International School, Nexus International School Singapore, Nexus International School Malaysia, Australian International School Malaysia, Taylor's International School Kuala Lumpur, and Taylor's International School Puchong. KKR's investment positions Taylor's Schools to accelerate growth and regional expansion.

Focused on the K-12 education system, Taylor's Schools seeks to empower its learners to become productive leaders in the global community through innovative and creative teaching and learning methods, preparing them for future opportunities. Taylor's Schools is a member of TEG, a leading private education institution in Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam. Other education-focused verticals under the TEG umbrella include Taylor's University, Taylor's College, The British University Vietnam and Taylor's Hostel Management, among others. These education institutions continue to be wholly owned by TEG.

Commenting on the investment, Dato' Loy Teik Ngan, Executive Chairman of Taylor's Schools, said, "Over the years, Taylor's Schools has grown in significance as a provider of top-class international school education in Malaysia and Singapore. With the intention to expand our portfolio of international schools in the ASEAN region, we are honoured that KKR has decided to collaborate with us in the next phase of our growth. We view their choice as a firm endorsement of the strategy of our K-12 schools platform. We believe that their commitment to building and sustaining long-term strategic partnerships suits us. They will complement our strength in education operations with their regional network, expertise in mergers & acquisitions as well as their access to capital."

"TEG will remain as the controlling shareholder of Taylor's Schools and we are pleased that the current management team will continue managing our schools. We will ensure that the world class K-12 international education that we are known for and our community of parents and students have come to expect is sustained," he added.

SJ Lim, Managing Director at KKR, added, "We are excited by this opportunity to share our knowledge and provide a capital solution for Taylor's Schools in its ambition to further expand into the region and provide quality educational experiences to more students. Under the leadership of Taylor's Schools' management team, all four brands have consistently achieved strong academic outcomes and we are confident that it is primed for more success. KKR also looks to leverage our operational experience, global network, and education expertise to further enhance Taylor's Schools' offerings."
