Seneca Partners’ EIS growth capital investment team has realised a net tax free return of c.3.3x from its investment in Foodpack Ltd.

Three years on from saving the business from Administration in a £7.5m deal, Seneca backed Foodpack Limited, the St Helen’s based specialist food manufacturing and packaging business, has been sold to Integrated Packaging Services Ltd (“IPS”).

Tim Murphy of Seneca, who was a Director of Foodpack throughout the investment, commented:

Making a success of a business bought out of Administration is notoriously difficult and involves many highs and lows along the way. Bringing Foodpack back from the brink and turning it into a high quality operation has been a great result for our Investors and all stakeholders, not least the 150 colleagues who work in the business but also the wider community of St Helens that benefits from those jobs being secured.”

Seneca Partners launches its new VCT offering – Press Release

SENECA LAUNCHES ITS NEW VCT OFFERING Seneca Partners, the SME specialist with a focus on helping companies to grow, has now officially launched its new VCT offering; Seneca has partnered with existing Hygea vct plc and is launching a New B Share class.  The New B Share class will be managed by Seneca and will […]

SENECA LAUNCHES ITS NEW VCT OFFERING

Seneca Partners, the SME specialist with a focus on helping companies to grow, has now officially launched its new VCT offering; Seneca has partnered with existing Hygea vct plc and is launching a New B Share class.  The New B Share class will be managed by Seneca and will complement its existing tax efficient range which includes EIS and IHT offerings with total AUM of more than £75 million. The launch of its VCT offering means that Seneca Partners now offers a full spectrum tax efficient product range.

Seneca Partners is well positioned to enter the VCT sector – the independent, investment management and corporate advisory business focused on the Northern Powerhouse, is building on the strength of its existing EIS business, which invests in the UK’s growing businesses and since 2012 has completed more than 70 growth capital investment rounds across over 30 companies.

Hygea vct plc (which will be renamed as the Seneca Growth Capital VCT plc upon the first allotment of New B shares, expected in June) is aiming to raise £10m in its first year which is intended to be invested in a portfolio of seven to ten initial investments.

The Seneca Growth Capital VCT will have a generalist investment strategy, which will benefit from Seneca Partners’ expertise in the growth capital sector. The investment team is focused on both private and AIM quoted businesses which benefit from strong management teams, robust business models, attractive growth prospects and an expectation of delivering a profitable and timely investment exit.

One significant structural advantage of partnering with an existing VCT is that whilst the New B Share class will be completely separate from the existing VCT’s residual investments, it will benefit from the VCT’s existing distributable reserves, which makes it possible to pay dividends on the New B Shares from the first year. Partnering with Hygea has also allowed Seneca Partners to bring its VCT to market more quickly.

Richard Manley, CEO of Seneca Partners comments; “In the current landscape of pension reform and record levels of investment in the VCT sector, it is timely for Seneca Partners to launch our VCT offering which  allows us to provide another tax efficient access point for investors seeking exposure to our growth capital investment expertise. The recent legislative changes, including those brought about by the Patient Capital Review, make Seneca Partners’ proven experience in growth capital investing even more relevant than ever before.”

Importantly, Seneca Partners directors and senior management team will be investing in the New B Share class and costs to be borne by the New B share class are capped, with Seneca Partners also taking on the launch costs.

Please call Zoe Powell on 020 7071 3920 if you would like to speak to Richard Manley, CEO Seneca Partners

LGBR Tax […]

A new brand for rapidly growing tax-efficient adviser education and product distribution business

 

LGBR Tax has worked in partnership with investment managers at the forefront of the tax-efficient investment sector since 2012, to develop and distribute innovative products to investment intermediaries and educate advisers on how these products can benefit their clients. LGBR Tax has now renamed as LightTower Partners, reflecting the fact that the business has grown rapidly and now warrants its own brand, to differentiate it from its affiliate, LGBR Capital.

LightTower Partners will continue, independently and with industry partners, to provide its education, training and support service for advisers specifically focused on maximising opportunities for their clients, whilst providing distribution for investment-led managers in the sector. The comprehensive tax-efficient education programme includes a nationwide series of CPD accredited adviser events, Meet the Manager sessions, regular e-marketing product updates and educational media content aimed at the advisor market.

LightTower Partners undertakes distribution for investment managers across a full range of tax-efficient structures including VCT (Venture Capital Trust), EIS (Enterprise Investment Scheme), SEIS (Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme), BR (Business Relief) and IHT (Inheritance Tax) products with investment managers at the forefront of the sector.  Each of these government-sponsored structures operates under different rules and offers different tax planning benefits for advisers and their clients. This growth capital for UK SMEs is the fundamental reason for their existence in an effort to close the funding gap for smaller businesses.

Jack Rose, added; “The business has grown rapidly over the years, driven by increased adviser demand for tax-efficient investments to meet client needs. Recent changes to pension rules and a rising IHT burden have propelled new assets into the sector. We have responded to the real need for an effective and widespread ongoing adviser education programme, as deployed effectively these products can form an important part of an investor’s portfolio. Our new brand name demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the sector and its future, in partnership with our investment managers and adviser clients.

In a bid to raise awareness of the sector and increase understanding of tax-efficient products, their features and where they can help clients, in the last twelve months alone, we have hosted over 70 nationwide events attended by more than 200 adviser firms and 2,000 advisers on the full spectrum of tax efficient investment products from VCTs to BR. We have also commissioned two independent industry reports and participated in webinars, video tutorials, podcasts and contributed a regular educational blog.

“We have seen greater acceptance of the credibility of the sector and its benefit for investors, a better understanding of its role in the investment landscape and pensions environment, an improvement in its reputation and greater acceptance of the industry’s contribution to the UK economy.”
