Whether you are seeking to expand, turn around, restructure or sell your business, we have the requisite skills, experience and capital to make it happen.

Our considerable boardroom experience and our ability to draw upon a large network of industry contacts enables us to support your expension, strengthening existing management as required and devising and concluding on transactions which enhance shareholder value.

We partner with our investee companies, working closely with management to achieve shareholder objectives. We do this by:

  • Introducing equity or loan capital using a substantial in-house fund
  • Devising appropriate capital structures
  • Advising on management structures and corporate governance
  • Strengthening existing management teams (where appropriate)

Our investment strategy

We evaluate all opportunities based on our belief in the company’s management, our understanding of your product or service, and our ability to add value.

As a small and tightly-focussed team, we have a highly flexible investment philosophy. Commercialism and speed of decision making are the hallmarks of our approach. We are not constrained by sector specialisation, and have so far completed transactions across the retail, manufacturing, distribution, real estate and B2B services sectors.

Funding has been made available for a range of deal propositions; restructuring, refinancing, acquisitions, expansion, exists, buy-outs, buy-ins and turnarounds. Deal sizes are typically £0.5m to £10m, rising to £20m for latter stage funding requirements.

Our partner companies are typically revenue generating and profitable. Funds are provided for working capital or growth funding rather than for seed or R&D use.
