As a leading TMT private equity firm in the UK, LDC’s experience across the technology, media and telecommunications sector is unrivaled. We have supported more than 130 TMT businesses with £1.3bn capital, backing 19 management teams in the last three years alone.

From hardware to software, SaaS to cloud-based solutions, ISPs to infrastructure providers, digital marketing agencies to film producers, our portfolio showcases the best of TMT across the mid-market.

Our successes over recent times includes the 40% revenue growth of international education software firm Texthelp, our partnership with premium speaker brand Martin Audio which helped them to drive double digit growth and videogames maker Team17, where following significant growth during our tenure the business completed a £217m listing on London’s AIM market.

Our current TMT portfolio includes specialist digital transformation services provider Foundation SP, B2B telecoms provider Onecom, next-generation managed cloud services provider Kerv, developer and provider of the data-driven marketing procurement platform RightSpend, Beekman Associates, online retail order fulfilment business James & James, TV production business Plimsoll Productions and Edinburgh-headquartered telecommunications and ISP provider Commsworld.

Our vast portfolio represents a diverse set of businesses – but the pace of change, significant impact of digitalisation and ambition to supercharge growth are common characteristics.

Our teams know how to support growth across the TMT sector and we’re committed to backing the management teams of these businesses to succeed – whether through buy and build, international expansion, or supporting organic growth.
