Investment: £100,000 – £300,000

Location: London

One of the leading and longest established authors’ agencies in Britain and the brand is known and respected worldwide. Established 75 years ago, they also have a strong backlist of Literary Estates.

The current, short term and future opportunities are very exciting and present an investment opportunity that is not to be missed. There is a need for both practical and financial support from the right investor to exploit a number of existing revenue and profit streams which are not currently being addressed effectively, and to explore new media (including film co-production), e-technology, film and book opportunities, and web based and targeted promotion.

It is not envisaged that all of the investment sought will be required at the outset and our client is looking for an active partner who can bring certain expertise to the business to enable the MD to concentrate more effectively on profit generating activities. In return a substantial equity stake is offered and active participation would be most welcome.
