Symvan Technology EIS Fund

Symvan Capital

Investment Objective

The objective of the Fund is to invest in companies eligible for EIS Reliefs that may have previously received investment from Symvan SEIS Funds and have reached a milestone where additional funding is necessary and appropriate.

The Fund offers investors access to an opportunity to invest in growth technology companies operating across a number of different business sectors. Portfolio Companies will be selected on the basis of their potential to deliver revenue growth and attractive returns to investors. The Fund will invest in a number of companies across a range of different technologies, including software, network security, mobile, fintech and other consumer applicable technologies. The Fund will invest in Qualifying Companies typically requiring between £0.25m and £2m in development capital early-stage investment.

Exit Strategy

The Fund anticipates that the options for investors to exit a Portfolio Company may include the following:

  • The acquisition of the intellectual property rights of the Portfolio Company at a price determined by an independent value;
  • A sale or part sale of the Portfolio Company;
  • The purchase by the Portfolio Company of shares held by shareholders;
  • The introduction of new investors (not EIS investors, who must buy new shares) to the Portfolio Company;
  • The reduction of the Portfolio Company’s share capital; and
  • The voluntary liquidation of the Portfolio Company or the sale of the Portfolio Company’s assets and subsequent distribution of proceeds to shareholders.
