Luminii are delighted to have provided commercial due diligence (CDD) support to Total Capital on their £17m investment into Precise Component Manufacture Limited (“PCML”), a precision engineering business. 

Utilising its single source funding model Total Capital is providing £17m of equity and debt and will take an 85% equity stake in the business whilst facilitating the exit of retiring shareholders.

Headquartered in Cambridgeshire and with five manufacturing sites in East Anglia, PCML provides rapid-turnaround manufacturing of complex custom components and assemblies to clients in R&D intensive industries, with an increasing focus on the bio-tech and medical sectors. The business has doubled in size in the last four years with turnover increasing from £6.5m in 2016 to £13m in 2020.

Total Capital Partners plans to further accelerate the growth of the business by making targeted acquisitions and strengthening its core activities, accreditations and market share in the bio science, medical, scientific equipment and high tech industrial sectors. PCML’s strategic aim is to become the UK’s leading biomedical science manufacturing hub.

"Luminii are delighted to have supported Total Capital on this transaction. This deal helps to further strengthen our credentials in the industrial and manufacturing sectors in which Luminii is certainly building a strong reputation as a go to provider for strategy and commercial due diligence. We wish Total Capital and PCML's management team continued success for the future." - Lushani Kodituwakku, Managing Director, Luminii Consulting

  • To date, Lushani and her team have supported me and Foresight on over 20 deals. They have consistently delivered high quality CDD reports, always against tight deadlines and to above expectation. They offer good value for money. Luminii are quick to understand our needs, offer sound advice and support on complex topics. Their ability to tailor the scope to our needs, focus on the core issues of each project and not being afraid to give their opinion backed by sound research and analysis is a great benefit to us. I would recommend their services without hesitation.

  • We engaged Luminii Consulting for a very targeted piece of commercial diligence in a very short timeframe. Luminii produced an outstanding report exactly on scope in what is a niche market segment. Moreover they managed to produce it in a very short period of time which was essential to getting the deal done.

Overall, a really insightful report that gives the Management team really useful intelligence.
