Perwyn is an active lead investor, seeking Buyout opportunities 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, including a strong focus on Buyouts with further opportunities to build scale through add-on acquisitions

Perwyn looks to invest in established, cash generative market leaders headquartered in the UK or Western Europe, where we can support growth initiatives and businesses in transition. We target businesses with an Enterprise Value of £/€100-500m, 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 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
