Funding and Investment

Accessing capital and funding

SG Capital Partners LLP is a private investment firm that draws its capital from it's investing partners and sponsors. Our investment objective is to generate both current income and capital appreciation through debt and equity investments.

We invest primarily in small and mid-market companies in the form of mezzanine and senior secured loans, as well as by making direct equity investments in such companies. From time to time, we may also invest in or through public companies.

SG Capital primarily focuses on the risk/reward profile of each prospective portfolio company, seeking to minimize the risk of capital loss without foregoing potential for capital appreciation. We invest in companies that have the potential to become market leaders either through organic or acquisitive growth built on strong free cash flows. We seek companies that have the following characteristics:

  • Value orientation / significant free cash flow
  • Experienced management team
  • Strong competitive position in industry
  • Visible exit strategy
  • Potential for growth
  • Consolidation candidate

We reduce risk by engaging in extensive due diligence from the perspective of a long-term investor and adopting flexible transaction structures. Our target investment size is from £5 to £50 million. We participate in all levels of the capital structure from secured senior debt to equity.

We also seek potential equity upside through warrants and equity co-investments.
