Posted by on Aug 8, 2018 in blogs | 0 comments

Since last posting it has been a busy time in our working with NVM Private Equity. Continuum have provided Human Due Diligence for the following growth capital investments.

In February, East Kilbride based SHE Software secured a £3 million growth capital investment from NVM with aims to enter international markets with its highly configurable health and safety software and to create over 50 new jobs by the end of 2018.

In March, NVM invested £3 million of growth capital into Maidenhead-based branded food business The Primal Pantry. With a vision to be a leading and trusted real food brand, the investment will be targeted at growing retail distribution and in-store visibility along with driving brand awareness through consumer marketing channels. NVM’s backing will allow the brand to continue to innovate and reach an increasing number of consumers who are conscious about the impact their food choices have on themselves and wider society.

In June, Flexioffices, one of the UK’s leading serviced office brokers, secured £8.2 million of investment from NVM as part of the funding package for a management buyout. The investment from NVM will help to accelerate Flexi’s international growth and drive continued development of their technology.

Most recently, in July, NVM invested £3.1 million of growth capital into Midlands-based Clarilis, a high-growth technology business providing drafting automation solutions to the legal industry.

To all of these investment processes, the Continuum team applied their proven methodology in order to expertly profile the individuals, teams and organisations.  In each case we were then able to provide NVM and the board with full reports on areas including capability, growth potential, team dynamics and human risks.  This has enabled NVM to invest with fuller knowledge of the human potential in each business.  Full feedback to the senior team at each organisation has also been provided (or is in process currently).
