UK Growth Capital Update – a review of Q3 2020

According to our research into UK private companies raising between £1 million and £20 million of growth equity capital each, 206 British businesses raised £982 million of growth capital in the third quarter of 2020: an average deal size of £4.77 million.

In Q1 2020 we saw 180 deals, with an average deal size of £5.15 million, and £927 million raised in total. In Q2 2020 there was a significant decline with just 161 deals completing, raising a total of £779 million, or £4.84 million on average. Our Q3 figures reveal a 28% increase this quarter in the number of deals completing and a 26% increase in the overall amount of growth capital being raised, albeit average deal size has continued to fall, by around 1.5% quarter on quarter.
