Datapath, which is based on Alfreton Road in Derby, supplies graphics cards and other products used mainly to control large screen displays, known as videowalls. 

More than 50% of all videowalls installed worldwide use Datapath equipment. With revenues close to £10 million and growing at 30% plus per annum, the company is well-positioned to build on its market leading position.

Our Corporate Finance team, led by Sally Saunders, originated and led a £12 million buy-out of Datapath Limited.

We advised the shareholders throughout the transaction which saw venture Capitalists Foresight invest £3 million, with RBS providing debt through their Structured Debt Solutions team.
