Gentian Capital is a venture focused on acquiring profitable independent UK-based businesses at fair valuations with a target of twenty profitable businesses by 2030. Gentian Capital's strategy is to improve management and invest in the company to grow the business.
Typically the vendor is looking to sell the business due to retirement but with a strong desire to ensure its successful transition to new owners who will continue to run the business largely as it is. We trust management teams with the day to day running of their businesses but Gentian Capital has substantial experience in bringing more focus and clarity around business management systems that can help the acquired company to improve its profitability and cash generation.
Furthermore we offer advice and support wherever necessary, stimulate intra-group cooperation, participate in succession planning and implement robust financial controls.
