GVA provides a comprehensive range of property solutions to UK and international owners, occupiers, investors, lenders and developers.
LDC invested £40million for a 27.5% stake in GVA in 2007.
The investment was to support the company’s growth through acquisition. Throughout the seven year investment period LDC helped GVA realise its ambitious growth plans and transformed GVA into the UK’s largest independent commercial property adviser.
In 2014 LDC excited GVA through a merger with Bilfinger, the €8.6billion turnover global engineering, construction and real estate services group. The merger marks a significant milestone for GVA, giving it a strong global position as well as providing the company with an array of opportunities for future growth fuelled by the unique combination of GVA’s well-established UK reputation and Bilfinger’s international reach and will transform GVA’s drive for faster growth and significantly strengthen its ambitions to compete on the world stage.
LDC’s backing and investment over the past seven years has been very important in helping GVA expand to a position where it can attract the interest of businesses of the international stature of Bilfinger and we thank LDC for its consistent support.Chief Executive, GVA
