In June 2010, LDC completed a significant investment into the management buy-out of AIM Aviation.
Since the original investment, Aim Aviation delivered substantial sales and profit growth, more than doubled its order book, capitalised on market trends in cabin differentiation, and invested heavily in the development of its facilities, product offering and research & development capabilities.
In 2013 Towerbrook Capital Partners acquired a controlling stake in Aim Aviation from LDC. LDC decided to re-invest and has taken a minority position in the new business. The exit produced a 3x money multiple for LDC.
Aim Aviation embodies LDCs strength in working with manufacturing and specialist engineering businesses. LDC worked closely with the management team and helped them grow amd develop the business and the decision by LDC to re-invest recognises the on-going opportunity to support this highly successful business.
