Partnering for profitable growth

CEPS is an AIM-quoted, industrial trading holding company that seeks to acquire growing, profitable and cash-generative specialist companies with defensible margins. Its acquisitions are characterised by private equity-style financial structuring and the entrepreneurial drive and flair of incentivised management teams. CEPS aims to achieve capital growth through steadily growing profits from its underlying companies and repaying acquisition debt. A conservative approach to capital allocation is guided by the medium-term objective to use the group’s cash flow to reduce gearing, add further businesses and provide a robust, steadily growing dividend stream.
