EPIC Private Equity ("EPE") partners with management teams and entrepreneurs to support the growth of small and medium sized companies, investing up to £20m in each deal.
EPE is the Investment Advisor to EPE Special Opportunities plc ("ESO plc"), an AIM-quoted, private equity investment company whose objective is to provide long-term return on equity for its shareholders by investing in small and medium sized companies.
ESO plc is the corner-stone of EPE’s capital division and is 25% owned by EPE employees, creating significant alignment with investors and management teams.
EPE uses proprietary deal sourcing approaches to identify investment opportunities, as well as actively engaging with the wider advisory community to communicate ESO plc's investment strategy. Since 2001, the Capital division of EPE has made 34 platform investments.
The quoted structure of the Company facilitates prolonged holding periods and EPE believes in developing certain investments over the very long term in order to maximise value.
EPE also seeks to invest up to £2m into early stage opportunities through a separate strategy, EPIC Adventures.
