Thanks to Chris Wright, Investment Director, LDC  and Paul Chambers, CFO, Synexus for sharing their insight on their involvement and learnings following the investment by LDC in March 2015 and the subsequent successful exit which was completed in May 16 which generated a 2.4 times return on investment during our private dining event at Menagerie on 3rd November. Our guests had the opportunity to hear from Paul & Chris, following on from a champagne tasting session, whilst experiencing the vibrant dining concept of Menagerie Restaurant & Bar. Paul was keen to point out that selecting the right PE and having an open and healthy relationship was and is key, he highlighted the support LDC gave in identifying and acquiring a US business which was the driver behind the eventual exit and that exit planning starts from day one – especially true in this circumstance. Chris offered further insight into LDC – LDC back management teams not just businesses, he also pointed to the fact that because LDC invest off the Lloyds balance sheet then they can be much more flexible and open in terms of timings for exit. Menagerie Owner & business woman of the year Karina Jadhav also joined us during the evening for an interactive Q&A session. Thanks to all those who attended what proved to be an eye opening evening!!
