SME Portfolio and Exits
Our portfolio includes UK companies in consumer, service and manufacturing sectors, with high quality management teams which we have supported with our flexible, long term investment structures.
The portfolio includes MBOs and shareholder restructurings as well as growth capital investments. We take an active role and gain a thorough understanding of the businesses and entrepreneurs we work with to help achieve their growth plans.
Our investments range from £3-10m and our flexible approach means that they include debt type holdings, with nil or sub-10% equity holdings through to more traditional private equity investment structures with minority or majority equity, to fit the circumstances of each business we back.
We bring the same supportive, open approach to helping companies achieve their objectives, whatever the investment scale and structure.
We have completed 30 direct SME investments ranging from 30 to 1,200 employees, leading 16 MBOs, 9 growth capital and 5 investments to enable shareholders to realise a portion of their equity value. We have supported 10 of these with follow on rounds of funding to assist their growth including those making acquisitions and rolling out new sites. To date we have completed 9 exits, including trade sales and secondary MBOs. Our average private equity investee company is c£25m t/o, £2.5m EBITDA employing c250 people.
