Our flexible investment strategy allows us to invest across all forms of private equity situations, which we categorise into three groups:
Buyouts and Co-investments
Direct investment in good-quality, well-managed businesses that have the potential for profits growth - through organic growth, operational improvement or acquisition. As lead investor, Epiris typically targets investments of £40 - 150 million in companies with an enterprise value of up to £300 million. Epiris also co-invests £30 - 100 million in minority positions in UK or International companies, alongside founders, other private equity firms, corporates or the public markets.
Secondary purchases of existing investors' positions in either individual or portfolios of private equity funds, as well as acquisitions of portfolios of businesses, known as "secondary directs".
Secondary purchases from existing lenders of individual or portfolios of either performing or stretched loans, where "stretched" refers to debt in good businesses with bad balance sheets where Epiris can take a role in the restructuring of the capital structure.
