LDC scores 'Deal of the Year' at North West Dealmakers Awards

LDC’s North West team were recognised at last night’s North West Dealmakers Awards, with the team’s investment in ChargePoint Technology named Deal of the Year (£10m-£50m). 

The Speke-based manufacturer of specialist high containment and sterile transfer valves secured a multi-million-pound investment from LDC in January, in a deal that would help to drive international expansion. The judges hailed the deal for its involvement of North West-based advisers. 

The business plans to capitalise on the strong and increasing demand for its solutions internationally, in particular North America, whilst accelerating sales of its innovative AseptiSafe® Bio product and investing in the development of new products, particularly in the aftercare market.  

Since the deal, ChargePoint has been recognised for exceptional profit growth as it made its debut on The Sunday Times Profit Track 100 2017

This accolade is the latest in a number of award wins for LDC, with the firm also recognised at the Midlands, South West and South East Dealmakers Awards earlier this year.
