MVF has established a new partnership with Pemberton, a leading European private debt manager. Pemberton supported MVF through its Senior Loan Strategy, in what was the platform’s first investment. The financing was delivered in partnership with HSBC, MVF’s existing relationship bank.
Richard Meehan, Director, Origination at Pemberton, said: “MVF occupies a unique space in the digital marketing landscape and is well positioned to benefit from the accelerated transition towards e-commerce and digital marketing. This is the first investment from our Senior Loan Strategy and highlights the type of resilient high-quality businesses that we are looking to support.
“We look forward to supporting the company’s exceptional management team in its growth strategy, both organically and via acquisitions, and we are pleased to be partnering with Bridgepoint Development Capital, a highly regarded sponsor with strong track record and deep sector expertise.”
Mike Winn, CFO of MVF, said: "Pemberton and HSBC's backing is a vote of confidence in MVF and our ambitious plans for the future. As all businesses look to increase how they attract new customers online, MVF is well positioned to provide that scalable growth. This support will allow us to pursue strategic acquisitions and build on our market leading proposition."
