Private Equity

Our strengths lie in identifying businesses with a durable advantage, acquiring them, then improving and restructuring the company to add strategic value.

Investment approach

As an investment company, we focus on identifying suitable target companies, acquiring the whole business or the assets, then improving and restructuring the company to add strategic value.

We tend to identify businesses with a turnover in excess of £500,000 with an established track record and loyal clients. Businesses will typically have one or more sources of recurring revenue streams, billable to clients in a systemised way. Businesses will have robust, salaried management in situ.

Acquire a business

Acquire a suitable target company that meets our mandate. Take over the assets and liabilities into a new corporate structure.

Improve the business

We work to improve operations, accelerate growth, reduce costs and manage risk within the new company structure.

Exit strategy

We analyse the new business and see where we can create synergies with our other investments. Then define the exit plan.

Do you want to exit your business?

Do you own a business that you want to sell? Or perhaps you know someone else that does?

We are prepared to work with business owners who need to sell their business, or that have a troubled financial situation. Business owners we work with are prepared to:

  • Hand over their business to us
  • Accept a reasonable, but fair, valuation
  • Understand that we will take care of their business
  • Work with us in the early stages to help maintain a smooth transition

We are not a business broker, we buy small and medium-sized businesses from owners who wish to sell or exit the business.
