Investment Criteria

We invest in businesses with a turnover between £5 and £50 million.

We target businesses facing one or more of the following challenges:

  • A desire to release capital to its principals.
  • An interest in selling outright to an independent party.
  • A requirement to replace existing shareholders.
  • A wish by business owners to enable second tier management to take a stake in the business.
  • Businesses without strong enough management or capital to unlock potential growth.

Although we will consider investment in strong, well run businesses in any sector, our partners have particular sector expertise in the following areas:

  • Niche industrial or manufacturing
  • Distribution and logistics
  • Renewable energy / clean tech
  • Food and beverage

Because we are a small team, with funding in place, we are usually able to move more quickly than traditional venture capital to get deals done in a short timescale.
