About Us

The Postern Pedigree

We are the original Company Doctors – founded in 1991, Postern’s name is synonymous of transformational change, global restructuring and turnaround. Postern’s founders were among the co-founders of the Institute for Turnaround. Postern works across UK, Europe and Middle East with lenders, private equity, family offices, fund of funds, venture funds, corporates, banks and all stakeholders.

Postern has worked with clients to deliver numerous assignments at CEO and directorship level since its formation to provide hands-on operational, restructuring and business transformational improvement services.


What we do Now

  • de-risking stakeholders, improving enterprise value, maximizing value creation and assisting in exit strategies;
  • operations in pre-deal and post-deal level to provide operational due diligence (e.g. validating a business plan or strategy, evaluating MI packs or assessing management capability);
  • supporting profitable exits by implementing corrective improvement actions;
  • focusing on securing distressed debt mandates for mid-market company opportunities;
  • taking a leadership role in the restructuring and transformational process;
  • delivering optimized business performance, designed and implemented growth strategies, deal origination, debt mandates, M&A integration and buy & build strategies;
  • procuring investment at or above the fulcrum debt tranche of companies with good operations and strong competitive positions;
  • supporting proposed investments in companies that are cash positive but require debt or equity to growth or reorganize;
  • providing detailed bottom-up and top-down analyses to provide good credit judgment and valuation disciplines by supporting the consistency of returns;
  • targeting primary debt or equity capital availability in select situations or facilitating debt distressed positions to execute a restructuring.
  • maximizing the “unlocking moment” to capture value beyond the deal thesis and assessing the opportunity to selectively optimize or redesign parts of a business.

Postern Equity Partners is also able to source lending to middle-market companies across a range of geographies.

Debt is often used to support private equity activity, leveraged buyouts, and refinancing. Opportunities exist across a number of developed market geographies, as well as up and down the capital structure including senior debt, junior capital/mezzanine debt and unitranche investments and equity.


Relationships take a long time to build. Postern has been restructuring companies, building growth strategies, optimizing business performance and implementing organizational change management for over 25 years.

We have brand reputation and integrity and we are a reliable, stable route to sourcing capital in the market.

Concurrently, we can uncover the value drivers and destroyers in business by understanding its potential and subsequent capital needs through adopting a consistent interrogation process across the investment cycle.


At Postern Equity Partners, we also focus on supporting controlled equity investments in asset-based or operational businesses. We also look to add value through active management of those assets when and where required and appropriate.

Each market segment or value chain offers unique risk, return and diversification characteristics for investors’ portfolios. However, one common thread running through all of them is the importance of relationships in sourcing deals and transactions. These relationships can often take decades to nurture and build. This is one area where the traditional qualities of credibility and reliability are as important today as they have ever been. It is the foundation on which investors can confidently build relationships with experienced advisors that have the knowledge and network required to deliver continuous access to quality opportunities. Our capital market relationships are key to our ability to access the widest range of opportunities for our clients and investors. Crucial to us is the transaction and delivering the right asset, under the right terms, for all stakeholders to ensure a successful and mutually acceptable outcome.



Through our long engagement in bringing value to companies, we are able to see the widest funnel of investment opportunities in various jurisdictions and asset classes.
