Risk Capital Partners has sold Neilson Active Holidays to LDC. Financial details have not been disclosed.
Neilson is a leading UK-based holiday company offering activity-focused summer and winter holidays. The company operates beach clubs, ski hotels and chalets, and 65 yachts, exclusively for its guests who number almost 80,000 every year. In recent years, Neilson has successfully capitalized on the increasing demand for activity and wellness holidays at the premium end of the market. This latest investment will enable the business to accelerate growth through the opening of new hotels to extend the range of countries in which the business operates as well as providing further backing for strategic acquisitions. The existing management team, led by chief executive David Taylor and chairman Richard Bowden-Doyle, will continue to lead the business.
LDC is one of the UK’s leading mid-market private equity investors with a long history of backing management teams and helping them grow their businesses.
