Acquisition is just the first step on the journey
That’s why we don’t simply invest in businesses, but also in the talented people who run them. We identify experienced, industry-leading management teams to build and grow businesses – not just for the first year, but through ongoing support, active participation and collaborative involvement.
Working together, we improve operations, re-focus strategy, streamline revenue/cost models and plan smart, organic growth and M&A activity. That’s how we build success.
We start small but think big
Our focus is mid-cap UK, European and North American headquartered businesses, with a target enterprise value of £150 million to £1.5 billion.
We see opportunity in change
We target companies in industries that are being galvanised by major structural change or dislocation, which we believe offer significant growth potential. Our “Buy-and-Build” strategy hinges on acquiring meaningful equity stakes in these companies via publicly-listed, sector-specific acquisition vehicles.
Why use public markets? It gives us an efficient, liquid source of capital throughout an investment’s lifecycle, and helps us to deploy our exit strategy most effectively – at the best possible time, terms and price.
We are sector agnostic
The diverse array of industries we have invested in to date reflect our sector-agnostic and entrepreneurial approach to investment.
