/ABOUT US

ACTIVE INVESTMENT

We unlock the value in balance sheets and maximise shareholder value. We invest our own funds and use our experience and contacts to align interests and maximise value for vendors. 

 

We are not an investment company, and we don’t invest third party funds. This allows us to take a collaborative, non-time limited view of our acquisitions. 

  

Above all else we are active investors, we roll up our sleeves, we take board roles, and are always supportive and aligned. 

 
/OUR FOCUS

EVENT-DRIVEN

CHANGE

SUCCESSION PLANNING

Selling your business is a very personal decision which can have many competing considerations. We align with the interests of exiting shareholders and find a solution for the personal considerations. We are keen to work with future generations helping them to acquire an equity position from their parents, keeping it in the family, although we can also find quick solutions where no next generation exists. 

OPERATIONAL CHANGE

All too often a radical change of operations is required to protect, or enhance shareholder value. Be it a divestment of an under-performing subsidiary, or a new way of working on the shop floor, we can provide the skills and capital required to maximise the outcome.

FINANCIAL CHANGE

Weak balance sheets often lead to stakeholder concerns. When current lenders or investors want to re-structure or exit the relationship and the business needs ongoing or extra funds, we are perfectly placed to support the business with capital and expertise.

SHAREHOLDER DISPUTE
The position a shareholder never hopes to end up in can often be resolved with a sale of the business. Value doesn’t have to be impacted because of the dispute. We work closely with the shareholders to align interests, protect the business and implement a solution through acquisition.
