Bridgepoint Development Capital ('BDC') is a dedicated team that is focused on buyouts and growth capital investments, typically in businesses with an enterprise value of between €20 million to €150 million. We look to invest between €10 million to €75 million of equity in individual businesses, which will typically have the potential for value creation through organic growth, acquisitions and operational improvement.
We currently operate in the UK, France and the Nordic region and expect to develop other European locations currently only, served by the Bridgepoint buyout funds in the near future.
Our team of nineteen investment professionals with an average of fourteen years' private equity experience has worked on a variety of transaction and business types and has a particular focus on the Consumer & Leisure, Financial Services, Healthcare, Industrials, Media & Technology and Services sectors. These are sectors where, through our investment track record, we have a good network and understanding of market dynamics, and can also draw on Bridgepoint's scale, resource and network for additional insight.
We also support our portfolio companies with further capital especially for 'buy and build' investments where we have a strong track record of adding significant value to investments, including deploying our cross-border execution capability.
