Perwyn is a lead investor, seeking situations where we can make a material impact on growth and profitability.

We are acting as a catalyst of change through the investment of strategic and operating expertise, in addition to capital and M&A experience.

Perwyn looks to invest in established, cash generative market leaders in the UK & Western Europe, where we can support growth initiatives and businesses in transition. We target businesses with an Enterprise Value of £25-125m, where we will be the first or second private equity investor.

Perwyn has a partnership approach to investing alongside management teams, taking on an active role in our businesses far beyond that of a traditional “high-street” private equity firm. This includes working to develop a clear strategy for each business, ensuring the right management team and Board is in place, professionalising reporting and processes, seeking and evaluating M&A opportunities and, where appropriate, providing further capital to support company strategy.

We are a low-volume investor, seeking a limited number of selected investments per year. This ensures that we can invest a material amount of time and resource into each company.

Typical deal situations we seek are:

  • Transitioning owner managed businesses
  • Classic management buy-outs
  • Corporate spin-offs
