What are opportunity acquisitions?

The lower mid-market space represents the most attractive investment opportunity in the UK today, as it is characterized by less competition, less intermediation and deal flow, which tends to be relationship-driven. In our experience, this results in lower pricing and debt levels, and ultimately in lower volatility and higher returns.

Long-term opportunity acquisitions

Companies within this segment of the portfolio present a strong balance sheet and have been profitable for a number of years. Handpicked by our knowledgeable investment team, these businesses offer strong growth potential and long term capital gain through further acquisition or investment in organic growth. Utilizing both our in-house experience and the knowledge of the business management teams, we aim to propel these businesses forward and capitalize on their potential.

Short-Term Opportunity Acquisitions

We are able to identify opportunities with a shorter investment horizon. This might be due to the delivery of a specific contract, a distressed sale where the business can be turned around or where the specific industry, whilst currently successful, does not have long term prospects. In these scenarios the investment team will approach the investment in the same way but aim to exit on a shorter timescale (e.g. less than two years). These shorter term deals provide an opportunity for placing debt capital and a different risk profile to many of the other portfolios.
