WHAT WE INVEST IN
We invest between £2m – £7m of Private equity funds in fast growing, cash generative businesses, typically with a minimum EBITDA of £1m at the point of investment.
We are sector agnostic investors seeking strong founders/ management teams of businesses in niche areas of the market where smaller businesses have the opportunity to outperform.
We back teams we like, who like us and who aspire to acquire the company they run or are seeking capital for expansion. We work in partnership with them either as minority or majority investors, providing broad business experience and helping to shape strategy in order to support continued development and generate shareholder value. We are able to help build executive management teams alongside Chairmen appointed from our extensive, trusted network of contacts.
We are entrepreneurial business owners who align ourselves with the companies we invest in.
If you would like to speak with us about your business and your capital requirements please contact us.
“Bestport has been a fantastic partner to work with. They provide great advice at Board meetings and have been actively involved in growing the business over the last three years. They have been supportive of the management team at critical points on the Dot Net journey and encouraged the business to strive for increased growth which helped us achieve a very successful exit.”
Paul Cosgrave, CEO Read case study
“Julian understood our business model from the outset and has encouraged us to lift our horizons which has already seen us surpass our original goal. As with any smaller company, we have had to jump a number of hurdles and Julian has been incredibly supportive throughout with advice and guidance in growing the business and in developing the management team and the strategy”
Dominic Gaynor, CEORead case study
“Bestport is a great partner to the management team and it is a pleasure to work together with James at Board level. Bestport has been very supportive of Creditcall’s approach to the business opportunity and currently this is resulting in the company developing a lot of traction in the market”
Lars Pedersen, CEORead case study
“Julian has always understood the business from a customer perspective, appreciated the challenges the people in our business face, embraced the unique culture we have created here at Virgin Wines and brought a marketing based appreciation to the Board rather than one purely based on the numbers which has been both refreshing and invaluable for everyone involved”
Jay Wright, CEORead case study
“Working with Bestport has been invaluable in shaping Oracle into the professional organisation it is today. Expectations have always been clear and the support received both individually and collectively has been constant.
