Investment Process

Our investment process is created to provide prompt feedback to potential investees on the progress of our deliberations.

The process is as follows:

Stage 1: Desktop or initial review of the investment

This may take the form of an initial discussion or a review of your business plan to assess whether the business is suitable for venture capital or private equity.


Stage 2 – Face to Face Assessment:

This involves a meeting with the business owners and managers to consider and debate the business case.


Stage 3 - Term Sheet:

If the initial assessment is positive, Firefly Capital will prepare and agree a term sheet with the owners which will include an exclusivity period and key actions required to complete the due diligence and final transaction.


Stage 4 - Due Diligence:

Following completion of a NDA (non disclosure agreement), Firefly Capital, and its advisers, will complete a due diligence investigation of key areas of the business, intellectual property, operations and its assets and liabilities.


Stage 5 – Completing or executing the Transaction

Legal agreements are signed, conditions precedent is fulfilled and Firefly Capital invests in the business.
