Our resources, track record of recent completions, sector knowledge and proximity make us a strong and logical next stage investor in prospective companies with the capability to deliver a beneficial outcome for all shareholders. We believe that we would be an excellent partner for Management and feel that we can offer all parties a very high level of certainty in our ability to deliver a deal in a reasonable time frame.
Bond is a family office, mid-market private equity investor and adviser.
We focus on late-stage finance to mid-market companies to enable entrepreneurs to accelerate sales and margin growth, create the path to founder liquidity and to make strategic acquisitions.
Our principals have over 100 years in each area of complementary operational and investment experience. With access to private family office capital, Bond can be a patient but disciplined investor.
Bond looks for committed founder management teams with proven business models looking to make a step change in outcomes, with a view to some form of value crystallisation.
Bond can provide a combination of equity and debt capital to suit circumstances, risk and serviceability, and to meet the founders’ objectives.
Our investment style is to work closely, in and out of board meetings, with founders and management, but only in areas where we can actively help solve challenges on a timely basis. Bond remains available to attend on premises or via other forms of communication at all times, and will use our own extensive networks of contacts, built up over long careers, to further the interests of our portfolio companies.
We have a broad range of operating, financial, online, legal, board, governance, debt, transaction and other related skills available. We tend to keep an active portfolio of only 2-4 companies at any one time so our interests are not diluted.
We do not anticipate making any changes to the current management structure. However, if we were to seek to make any changes, they would be in consultation with Management and would be motivated by a desire to strengthen the incumbent team.
In addition, where appropriate, we would look to work closely with Management to augment/restructure the Board of the Company with one/or a number of non-executive directors who have the ability to materially enhance the strength of the board. In this regard, we may seek to leverage our network of relevant industry contacts, and look forward to discussing with Management our combined ideas for candidates who could support the Company in a non-executive capacity.
