LDC Midlands has been central to LDC's evolution over the years and encompasses the Birmingham and Nottingham offices. We have completed over 150 transactions since the first office opened in 1987 investing over £1.1billion of equity.
The team have a wealth of experience in a number of business sectors but, as you would expect, are extremely knowledgeable about industrial businesses - ranging from the specialist engineering sector to ‘source and supply’ distributors of engineering products. However our focus remains on transacting deals which support good quality management teams in whichever sector they trade.
Over the last five years, we have completed 30 transactions supporting these businesses with over £500million of equity, and also completed 14 successful strategic exits delivering proceeds in excess of £400million. This level of activity has confirmed not only our continued appetite in the region but has established LDC as its leading player.
Over the last 20 years the team have attained many 'Private Equity House of the Year', 'Funding Team of the Year', ‘Deal of the Year’ and ‘Dealmaker of the Year’ regional awards. In 2015, they picked up the impressive ‘Dealmaking Private Equity Excellence’ award at the Insider Midlands Dealmakers.
