LDC won Deal of the Year at the South West Dealmaker Awards for its investment in Plimsoll Productions. The winners were announced at a special Insider online forum which took place on Wednesday 21st October.
The awards, which judged investment activity in the South West between May 2019 and April 2020, recognised LDC’s investment in Plimsoll Productions as the standout mid-market deal during this period.
