Many of our investors are ‘regulars’, investing in multiple projects and often taking up exec roles in our clients’ growing businesses. For us, this means that while keeping in touch with investors about new opportunities, we are able to catch-up on previous investments and see how the business is performing. This week, we received an update on a client who has used our investment to become an industry leader in open space management.Growth Capital InvestmentOur client originally approached Beer & Young seeking funding to purchase the balance of shares from a listed property group, who were themselves keen to exit.We reached out to our network of investors and received interest from a number of parties. However, one investor really stood out; he is a senior accountant, able to bring financial and executive management experience to the business. After introducing our investor to the client, it was only a matter of weeks before terms were agreed and an initial investment of £285,000 was made. Fast-forward a few years and the company is now one of the UK’s most experienced and successful manager of communal, external areas, with more than 350 developments across England and Wales. Our investor, Graham H, continues to be an active board director and shareholder, supporting the business as it continues to steadily grow, focusing on sustainable solutions.In an earlier email exchange Graham noted “I’m always pleased to learn of new investment opportunities through B&Y; you seem to have a knack of finding quality projects with grown up management teams. Thank you again for introducing this one to me, it’s proven to be an excellent business and we continue to grow the company year on year”.
