Transaction Types

With a broad range of funds, Foresight is able to be flexible in structuring deals, providing a mix of equity, loans or mezzanine finance depending on the transaction and the company's requirements. We typically invest between £1 million and £5 million, although we syndicate with equity and debt partners where required for larger transactions.

Foresight Private Equity invests in a wide range of transactions including:

Management buy-outs (MBOs), management buy-ins (MBIs) and buy-in management buy-outs (BIMBOs), aligning the ownership and management of businesses. Examples include the MBO of ICA, the BIMBO of TFC and the MBI of Channel Safety Systems.

Growth capital to fund organic expansion and acquisitions. Examples include The Bunker, UTarget and Alaric.

Equity release or cash outs, allowing shareholders to release value from their businesses whilst maintaining an ongoing involvement and gaining a supportive new partner. Examples include Datapath, Autologic and Aerospace Tooling Limited.
