Are your sales growing and now between £5m and £100m - do you need investment of £2m to £10m ? The BGF have funds and may be for you...
04 Mar 2012
BGF has been established to help Britain’s fast growing smaller and medium sized businesses. BGF provides long-term equity investment for those growing companies that today do not have enough access to this source of capital. Growth potential is the key criteria. BGF invests between £2m and £10m in return for a minority stake in a business.
BGF typically invest in privately owned, profitable companies with a turnover between £5m and £100m. BGF invests in all sectors of the economy with the exception of financial services and property, through its local investment teams and offices across the UK. As these investments are made directly from BGF’s balance sheet we are able to take a long term view.
They are investors, not lenders; they provide equity, not debt. As equity investors BGFcan look to the longer term prospects of a company and ensure it is properly capitalised. Banks, quite rightly look to a shorter period and are focussed on repayment of their debt. Their credit and risk criteria are naturally very different to that of an investor who can consider a broader range of factors. Equity investment is an alternative that we would encourage fast growing smaller and medium sized businesses to consider.
