Private equity provides growth funding and the opportunity for a partial exit, as well as bringing in a specialist investment partner to support business owners to fast track the growth of their business.

Accessing private equity funding can be transformative for businesses. Bringing in a private equity investor provides the opportunity for current shareholders to, at least partially, sell down to extract value from the business and diversify wealth. It also provides growth funding for future opportunities, including acquisitions, and an experienced business partner to support management in fast tracking the growth of the business.

Grant Thornton has deep relationships with mid-market private equity firms, looking to provide equity cheques of between $5m and $100m, and can identify and introduce the most relevant funds for a particular business.

Grant Thornton hosts Australia’s premier mid-market private equity conference (our 11th held in 2023) with attendance from a broad range of mid-market private equity firms and leverage lenders. Our conference has deepened our relationships and understanding of each private equity firm.

We are also a core provider of transaction advisory and valuation services to Australia’s mid-market private equity firms.
