Management buyout

If you want to buy a share in the business you run, private equity can help you gain control through a management buyout (MBO). In the last five years, LDC has supported more mid-market MBOs than any other private equity house in the UK. We take a flexible approach, supporting you with a minority or majority investment.

Secondary buyout

Businesses with existing private equity investment often benefit from the fresh approach of a new investor through a secondary buyout (SBO). You know how private equity works, but you’re not finished. And perhaps you’re looking for a different type of partnership, one with greater flexibility and a longer-term view?

Development capital

Development capital – also known as growth capital or growth funding – is a capital injection into your business to further growth without a change in ownership. LDC often partners with business founders or leaders to invest for a minority shareholding, backing you and your team to deliver future growth with confidence.

Corporate carve out

A corporate carve out or disposal via private equity can create a deal structure that suits for all parties – working with the management team to buy the business, remove barriers and take the business forward. In the last 18 months alone LDC has completed seven corporate carve outs, with a combined value of more than £250m.
