Private Equity



Acorne Ltd, which trades under the Virgin brand as Virgin Experience Days, pioneered the experience gift voucher market and has seen enormous success over the last 10 years reaching £50m in turnover during 2017.

The deal represents an exit for its founders Richard Gyselynck and Andrew Dent and the chance for the existing management team, alongside Inflexion, to accelerate growth in both the B2C and B2B divisions

Andrew Dent and Richard Gyselynck – Founders, Virgin Experience Days

We’ve been working with Bishopsgate for a while to ensure the company was ready for sale. They not only delivered us a fantastic deal but they ran the process with efficiency and pin point accuracy!

We have enjoyed growing the business organically and by acquisition and believe the business is capable of substantial future growth. I am delighted that Inflexion have recognised this potential.


This investment by Inflexion will ensure the longevity of the business and allows the management team to continue to participate in its future growth. Experienced management and new blood will enable the company to exploit fully the market opportunities now opening up.
