LDC celebrates record year in Thames Valley with four award wins

LDC’s Reading office has been recognised at the Thames Valley Deal Awards, taking home four awards on the night after a record year in the region.

The six-strong team was awarded Private Equity House of the Year, having supported some of the region’s most ambitious businesses over the last 12 months. This includes investments in Rush, ByBox and CIPHR, as well as completing the sale of Property Software Group to one of the UK’s fastest growing digital platforms, Zoopla.

LDC’s £37.5m investment in ByBox, the market leading technology company specialising in supply chain solutions, was also named Large Deal of the Year, with the £16m management buyout of leading hair and beauty brand Rush, taking home Mid-Sized Deal of the Year.

It wasn’t just the firm’s deal activity that was recognised either. Investment Director Chris Baker was awarded Young Dealmaker of Year, which recognises exceptional work in the deal making community for those under the age of 35.
