Investment rationale

We provided £5m of growth capital to support continued growth of this global specialist in the online retail of technical sports clothing and equipment. The funding was provided as a combined debt and equity package.

Wetsuit Outlet plans to increase market share in Europe, expand into the US, and take its cutting-edge online platform into new verticals, by creating new brands in two other niche markets: equestrian and field sports.
