Locksbridge Capital is the private equity investment vehicle of Sheikh Holdings. Locksbridge Capital specialises in making growth capital, or development capital investments in smaller companies. Our typical investment range is between £500k and £2m per transaction, although as part of the wider Sheikh Family Office our funding relationships allow us to invest more if required. We also invest in buyouts, buy-ins and recapitalisations, as well as providing growth or development capital.
Locksbridge capital is a supportive, lead investor, with a preference for owner-managed businesses. Our target investee companies are typically either earlier stage high growth businesses with a clear path to profitability or more mature cash generative companies capable of paying dividends in future periods.
Locksbridge principals have experience across a broad range of industries and will therefore consider opportunities arising from most sectors.
Our investment ethos is to become a true partner with our owner managers providing finance but also advice and support drawing on the business acumen and entrepreneurial success of the Sheikh Family and wider Locksbridge team. We will invest in minority equity and majority equity transactions. We will also partner with other Family Offices and Institutions should an opportunity require significant funding or follow on capital. In such circumstances Locksbridge is able to lead manage the process of raising additional capital drawing on a wide range of contacts and corporate finance expertise.
We have not fixed a timeframe to achieve an exit for our investments and will work with owner managers to establish the optimal time to realise value. Through our corporate finance contacts and expertise we can assist our investee companies in securing the correct sales value.
