In commenting on the transaction, Saul Fox, Fox Paine's CEO, remarked that "Paradigm's extraordinary growth over the course of our 10 year association is a result of the company's unremitting commitment to geoscience and computational research and development, rapidly deploying the results of its prodigious research and development programs to create novel and continuously improve existing exploration and production solutions, and an unflagging commitment to serve and advance the interests of the company's customers as well as the energy industry more generally."

Overall to date, Fox Paine Fund II, which was established in 2000 with $1.0 billion in capital commitments from investors, has achieved a 40% per year compounded annual return (net of all fees and expenses) on all invested capital, including six platform corporate acquisitions, company growth initiatives, and "follow-on" acquisitions.
