York Mailing is the UK's largest supplier of print material to the retail sector. BGF invested in the business in 2013. In September 2015, the founders sold a majority stake to the existing management team and BGF partially exited.
This deal represented BGF's first exit and return on capital. BGF's long-term funding structure means that while it remains a minority investor of York Mailing, the initial return made from this deal is now being reinvested into other growing companies.
