Growing businesses require funding to support their expansion.
Through the EV Growth Funds, Mercia is one of the most active investors backing ambitious management teams which are looking to scale.
We put together equity funding packages of up to £1.5million for ambitious UK companies which have sound ideas, the necessary skills and most importantly a keen eye on success.
Capital is available for a range of purposes including finance for expansion, to support a management buy-out or buy-in, or acquisition financing. Our funds are particularly useful for cash out transactions and preparing for succession planning.
We are able to structure equity investments to produce a package of debt and equity that will deliver returns through a combination of yield, performance-related dividends and capital gain on exit, typically over a period of three to five years.
