YFM Equity Partners LLP

YFM is a specialist investor with over 30 years of experience investing up to £10 million of equity into growing small businesses located throughout the UK regions. With our new Growth and liquidity programme for UKBAA members, we are looking to provide follow on funding to support commercially proven businesses with at least £1-2 million of delivered commercial sales, most of which will have previously received initial seed funding.

We will typically invest an initial £1-3 million to:

• Provide growth capital to help businesses expand; and

• If required, deliver liquidity for existing shareholders who may want to realise part or all of their investment.

We also have the capacity to provide further funding to support ongoing growth plans. With over £60 million of funds available to invest we have the flexibility to structure a broad range of solutions. As an incoming investor we can also set an independent valuation of a business.

We are keen to provide investment where our capital and operating expertise can act as catalysts for substantial revenue and enterprise value growth.
