Oakley Capital Private Equity
Headquartered in London, Oakley Capital Private Equity is a mid-market private equity fund with over €280m of committed capital, investing in the UK and Western Europe.
We typically invest in sectors that are growing or where consolidation is taking place. Within our core sector interests we invest in both performing and under-performing companies, supporting buy and build strategies, rapid growth, or businesses undergoing significant operational or strategic change. Investing in a diverse range of portfolio companies, our objective is to work proactively with our investee management teams, together with other stakeholders, in order to create substantial shareholder value.
Oakley Capital Private Equity generally invests in situations outside of those which appeal to the mainstream private equity community. Our deals are often particularly challenging or complex and are therefore unlikely to appeal to mainstream investors.
Our deals will include the following:
Challenging or complex management buyouts and buy-ins
Public to private transactions
Operational turnarounds and financial restructurings
Later stage development capital
We look for businesses where our team can make a difference. Our senior team members include proven business leaders who have successfully run, transformed and grown businesses themselves.
We are relatively sector agnostic but typically invest in sectors that are growing and / or consolidating and we have invested across a wide range of sectors to date.
We are used to executing deals in relatively short and demanding timescales, where the circumstances of the business or the situation demand it.
Our targeted investment size is from £5million to £60million. We seek to take controlling equity positions, but can also invest in other parts of the capital structure, including mezzanine and senior debt in support of equity led transactions.
