PRIVATE EQUITY PARTNERSHIP SECURED FOR LEADING DRAINAGE SPECIALIST
Jay Singh, Corporate Finance Director at KBS Corporate, has advised on the sale of London Drainage Facilities Limited, identifying YFM Equity Partners as a suitable investor.
London Drainage specialises in the provision of commercial drainage solutions, serving clients across London and the surrounding areas.
Daniel and Lucie Fuller founded the business in 2006, quickly developing a successful brand and a growing regional client base.
London Drainage is now recognised as a leading services provider in its market, actively working with large organisations in the public and private sectors.
During the marketing process, Jay Singh was supported by Senior Corporate Document Writer Alex Foster, who wanted to highlight the company’s ideal position within its industry.
“With a significant fleet of vehicles, a large client base and a well-known brand, London Drainage has built up a strong regional presence,” advised Alex.
“I made sure to highlight the sizeable opportunity the business presented for buyers and investors seeking to expand their market share in London.”
YFM is a successful private equity partner managing over £400m of funds, primarily investing in small UK businesses with vast growth potential to enhance its market portfolio.
The acquisition of London Drainage is part of the organisation’s wider growth strategy, supporting new partners in the technical services sector with a proven track record of success.
YFM is currently expanding its engineering team to offer wider geographical coverage and a more diverse range of services.
Jay Singh is pleased London Drainage has secured a partnership that will enable the business to fulfil its long-term growth potential.
“Daniel and Lucie have built up an excellent business with substantial scope for growth,” said Jay. “The YFM investment allows the shareholders to de-risk, but also retain a significant equity stake.
“Furthermore, partnering with YFM will ensure the business continues to grow and achieve its full potential in its next stage of development.
“It was a pleasure to work with Daniel and Lucie and I wish them every success with the business going forward.”
