INVESTMENT CRITERIA

Bestport typically invests between £2m-£7m in fast-growing, cash generative businesses with a minimum EBITDA of £750k at the point of investment.  A potential Bestport investee company will have a highly focussed and ambitious management team and strong growth prospects either through organic growth and/or carefully targeted acquisitions.

We consider UK-based companies in most sectors but are particularly active in business services, education, healthcare services and technology.

Bestport primarily provides capital to assist management teams in acquiring the company they already run but we also consider backing existing owners in executing an accelerated growth plan. All Bestport investments are focussed on generating substantial capital gains for all shareholders through profitable exits within a three to five-year timeframe.

If you would like to speak with us about your business and your capital requirements please contact us.
