As well as funding organic growth, private equity investment can provide capital to acquire competing or complementary businesses to broaden and deepen your existing offering to customers.

Supported over 30 buy and build acquisitions in past three years

Many of the programmes we back (often referred to as buy and build) involve the acquisition of businesses in new geographies to provide UK-wide coverage or greater international reach.

If you're operating in a highly fragmented sector, this can also create an opportunity to consolidate the market in a chosen region.

As well as providing funding for acquisitions, our teams can help businesses to create the right infrastructure to support this increased scale and help you achieve the synergies from integration.

See examples of recent transactions we've supported, many of which included buy and build programmes. Alternatively, please contact a member of our team to discuss how LDC can help your business grow.
