Background to Rockpool
Rockpool provides a route to direct investment in management buyouts and similar private equity style investments in the UK. With full transparency, no fees and the ability for investors to select on a deal by deal basis, this service has proved attractive to experienced family offices and private investors.
We find businesses that are established and profitable and with room for growth. We call these transformer companies. We undertake thorough due diligence and support management to grow the business. The aim is to make the companies attractive to trade buyers or private equity funds and then sell in a competitive process to maximise returns.
What is a Transformer?
Transformer companies are profitable and growing, typically with annual revenues of £5m-£30m. Small enough to be owner-managed, yet well past the risky start-up phase. Not yet large enough to attract traditional private equity funds or strategic buyers, but ready to embark on the journey to get there. They need patient capital and some help to professionalise. They have something unique to offer and are already generating profits of at least £500,000 a year, so we can be confident that the business model works.
Capital at risk and there is no guarantee of any investment returns. This sort of investment does not provide a reliable source of income. The value of investments may go down and you could lose all of your investment. Private company investments are not listed on any market and this means that you may not be able to sell them when you want to do so. We do not provide investment, tax or legal advice.
