Typical investment profile
We have a UK focus, but are not shy of international opportunity. We make meaningful investments of between 10% to 29.9% of the equity. We prefer B2B over B2C and are as attracted to more mature technologies as we are to newer ones.
We are building on two complementary investment themes
– A small number of principle investments that are quoted platforms, set for growth by acquisition
– A portfolio of high potential, smaller investments that are fast growth, probably first generation managed and undercapitalised
Our sources of funds
We have access to a pool of capital that is often supplemented by our own institutional shareholders in MXC. We are keen to build on our access to high net worth, entrepreneurial investors and family offices. We have access to debt finance, which in some cases proves to be particularly efficient for the companies we invest in. As major shareholders in MXC, our team is keen to avoid dilution and so we will re-invest profits from trading our investments.
Scaling MXC for the future
We know that to create value in our own business, we must build depth to deliver scale and sustainability. To become the merchant bank of choice for technology companies, we are focussed on building out our processes and capability to support an increasing level of business. We are investing in talent to manage our expanding flow of opportunities, to source opportunities more widely and to complete an increasing number of transactions.
