LDC named Funding Team of the Year in the East Midlands

LDC has been recognised at the East Midlands Dealmaker Awards as the standout funding team in the region.

The judges said six deals worth together more than £100m led to LDC being named the East Midlands' biggest private equity house. Standout activity included the £17m management buyout of Panther Logistics and the management buyout of TXM Plant.

Three exits completed by the team during the judging period were also recognised for their impact on the region’s economy. This included the exit of Node4 to Bowmark Capital, the sale of media giant Orion Media to Bauer Media and the sale of consumer good business Original Additions to US-based beauty and personal care company PDC Brands.

The awards celebrated the region's best talent in corporate finance and the dealmaking community was commended by Kurt Jacobs, editor of Midlands Business Insider, for the resilience shown during one of the most unpredictable and uncertain years in decades.
