What we look for
4th December 2013
31st October 2013
We supported the transformational acquisition of Filofax within a year of completing the Letts deal. This acquisition offered substantial synergies as well as adding a global brand to the business at an attractive price.
"Dunedin took the time to understand our business, the journey we are undertaking and our long term goals. They share our passion and drive and recognise the opportunities that lie ahead. Dunedin’s DebtBridge solution meant that the deal could get done quickly, while ensuring certainty of delivery to everyone involved"
CEO of Trustmarque
"A number of elements made Dunedin stand out in the tight deal process including a strong partnership approach, deliverability with their DebtBridging solution, a proven appetite and the expertise to help us to achieve our growth ambitions."
CEO, Red Commerce
"The Dunedin team quickly got to grips with the fundamental drivers of our business and worked extremely hard to complete this deal."
Chief Executive, CitySprint
"Dunedin has provided genuine strategic input and support in to the development of the business. They're also really good people to deal with. As a house, they do more than just write the investment cheque. I'd recommend Dunedin to anyone needing equity."
Managing Director, Practice Plan
"Dunedin’s ongoing strategic and financial support has allowed us to address new market opportunities effectively and significantly enhance our business franchise in overseas markets."
Chief Executive, RSL Steeper
"Dunedin has been unstinting in working with us to drive through value at Hawksford. They committed a huge amount of time to the business, far beyond our expectations."
Executive Director, Hawksford International
"I've worked with Dunedin for over four years now and I like their professional, can do and supportive approach. They add significant value in their own areas of expertise and let the management team get on with running the business day to day"
Managing Director, etc.venues
"We liked the Dunedin approach from the start and they delivered on everything that they committed to in a tight timescale."
Managing Director, Weldex
"Dunedin supported us all the way and helped us to make some major strategic decisions, in particular in terms of new market penetration and the maximisation of shareholder value."
Managing Director, Caledonian
"Dunedin has supported Capula throughout the investment, forming a close relationship with the team to help develop a clear strategic vision for the business."
Chief Executive, Capula
"Besides the excellent chemistry between management and investor, they got the exact right balance of supporting the team and conscientious monitoring of the investment and always done with good humour."
Managing Director, Celtic Inns
"Dunedin’s support has been invaluable and I have been particularly impressed with their pragmatic approach to problem solving. In addition to the financial benefits of the partnership, we have found Dunedin to be very open, honest and easy to get along with."
"Dunedin worked in partnership with the management team to secure the turnaround and growth of the business. Without their support the successful exit could not have been achieved."
Chief Executive, Gardner
"Dunedin already had an in-depth understanding of our sector which allowed them to see the potential of a strong roll-out strategy. They worked closely with us to create value and then realise that value by a successful flotation on AIM."
Managing Director, Goals
"The team demonstrated a real understanding of our business early in the process and impressed us with their innovative approach to deal structuring. They added significant value through the introduction of high calibre non-executives and strategic guidance."
Managing Director, Home and Legacy
"Dunedin recognised the potential of our business and was quick to support us in our management buyout. They showed great confidence in us by backing a transforming acquisition within a year of the buyout and continued that support all the way through to exit."
Group Managing Director, Letts Filofax
"They were the absolute standout of the people we spoke to. They were easy to deal with, thorough and straightforward. I liked their commerciality and they understood the business. They were open and honest and acted with complete integrity."
Chief Executive, Zenith
