H2 Equity Partners, founded in 1991, is a leading Western European hands-on investment firm focusing on the United Kingdom, Ireland and the Benelux. H2 Equity Partners is an entrepreneurial and hands-on investment company investing in mid-sized companies with significant growth or improvement potential.

H2’s typical investment targets are companies generating annual sales of £20 – £500 million or €25 – €550 million. We are a sector agnostic investor and cover a wide range of industries and markets, but focus on fundamentally profitable sectors with underlying growth. Over the years we have invested in Healthcare, Building Materials,  Business Services, Software and IT and a whole range of other sectors.

H2 Equity Partners focuses on three main types of transaction:

  • Corporate carve-outs
  • Growth & profit improvement – including buy & build
  • Special situations

H2 Equity Partners has a differentiated approach; we consider ourselves “Entrepreneurs with Capital”

  • In depth business experience due to our operational & consulting backgrounds
  • Pre-transaction assessment by own (in-house) team
  • Hands-on support: to allow management to implement ambitious plans better & faster
  • Typically we’ll join the Board as a NED

We are used to working closely with management and other stakeholders to deliver results in complicated situations. Matters such as management succession or retirement issues for example do not scare us off unlike traditional private equity firms.

During the last 30 years we have gained experience in virtually all sectors and situations resulting in a high level of deliverability and the ability to evaluate transaction opportunities quickly.

H2 Equity Partners advises funds with ca. £450 million of investor capital and our team members personally invest in every single deal. We consider ourselves entrepreneurs with (committed) capital and take pride in our companies, their products, services and their staff.

The Amberon Group is a market leading traffic management provider to the utilities and Local Authority markets. Amberon was established in May 2002 with our first depot in Paignton, South West England. Our founding core principles remain at the heart of everything that we do and our continued desire to achieve our purpose; to provide the best service in the Traffic Management sector. This has been the foundation for our success and has cemented our position as the market leader in TM.

During the initial transaction we never felt under any pressure & instantly recognised we would become part of the family. H2 took the time to listen to our views & business strategy, it was obvious from the very beginning that they would be the perfect partner for us.

The guys at H2 have enabled us to continue the momentum & have provided the expertise & knowledge to help us continue on the journey to constantly improve our service offering.

Working with H2 during the last 2 years has given us additional support not just financially but the advice & expertise has helped analytically & strategically.

The ambition and the drive H2 have is extremely infectious & continues to assist the group to overachieve.

It’s enormously reassuring to know H2 will always be at the end of the phone to offer advice but heartening to know they have the trust in us to deliver.
