Established Businesses

Whatever your reason for seeking further investment in your business, whether this is to capture new markets, sell and retire,  rescue it from some unexpected ‘distress’, or avoid calling in an insolvency practitioner, we are interested in talking to you.

However, just as we would for early stage Angel Investments, we will need to know the ins and outs of what it is about.

Take Heart

By talking to us you may well save yourself massive amounts of time and work preparing ‘prospectuses’ for sale or investment. Our approach to ‘due diligence’ is less dramatic and legalistic than most other investors, or brokers. You’ll also save often vast fees that might not produce anything for you anyway. With us you are talking to the organ grinder, not the monkey.

Getting to Know You

Essentially we want to know your story – and that of the business. How long you’ve owned it, when it was formed, what it’s done, what it can still do, who your customers are and the length of relationships. Likewise for suppliers and staff. We’ll also want to know a bit about your finances, how much you and others have invested, what loans you have, whether you’re solvent or not (we’re still interested even if your not), and what your cash flow has been over the last year and what it will be for the next 12 months.

Don’t worry if you don’t have all of this to hand straight away, we can and will work with you to ‘fill out’ the blanks and put ‘flesh on the bones’ for you.

Our Interests

… may be simpler than you might think.

First of all we are not interested in ‘asset stripping’ or getting rid of the people who have helped you build up your business so far. To the contrary, we will need them to take your business to the next stage, whatever this may be. And whatever the case our aim will be GROWTH, both organic and via acquisition, merger, amalgamation, partnering, etc.


And when you do talk to us you can be sure that this will be with the same degree of confidence and confidentiality that we also expect from you (we have business secrets and intellectual property to protect as well). You’ll find our Mutual Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement here for your use.

If you’d prefer to ‘get a feel’ for us before going further, give us a call. We are human!
