We invest in cash-flow positive U.K & Scandinavian companies by providing liquidity to the founders or family shareholders, thus relieving them from the daily operations of running a business so that they may focus on the next chapter of their lives.
We then provide these companies with access to some of Scandinavia's leading executives via our informal board network so that the business can be run in a highly professional manner and ensure longevity of the founders life's work.
We are not passive investors, we are business builders. The Partner team have built & invested in dozens of companies over the years, and have also exited some of those companies via M & A's as well as IPO's.
Once we have taken a stake in or assumed full ownership of a company, we would seek to manage these companies by appointing and supporting a qualified CEO and Senior Management team for a few years before potentially taking the business to the next level by placing the company on a stock market.
WE BELIEVE that founders who have managed to build a strong business & are open to pursuing new interests outside of their company should have the option to ensure a smooth transition process from being the daily owner-operator to having a beneficial exit from their business.
We are always happy to grab a coffee or host a virtual meeting and chat about your company as well as your ambitions should you feel as though you fall within our scope.
It goes without saying that we cannot invest in all of the companies that we meet, thus we would seek to get to know you, your business, as well as your management team prior to investing.
This process does not have to take a lot of time and can be accelerated based on your personal timeline. We can execute on a deal as quickly as within 120 days of our initial chat.
Once we get to know you and you us, should all parties involved feel like IPO Capital would be a good match for your company' ambitions, we would seek to invest in the buyout of your business.
We tailor our deal terms as well as our post acquisition operational involvement to your specific company' requirements. We may request a "hand-over period" of 6 - 12 months whilst we onboard a new CEO should your business not currently have a seasoned internal team to step up as the new senior management team.
