One of the UK’s largest full-service digital agencies received £4m to support a management by out and business growth plans.
Originally founded in 2000, IDHL has grown to be one of the UK’s leading digital marketing groups, employing over 240 experts across seven specialist agencies and five locations.
Headquartered in Harrogate, IDHL hold a string of prestigious industry awards and an impressive client base including 118 118 Money, Hotel Chocolat, Osprey Europe, Ryobi, and Card Factory.
FDC provided a £4m investment to IDHL alongside HSBC in June 2017 to support a management buyout and business growth plans.
With our funding and support, the business has gone on to acquire three further agencies, broadening their digital offering. Since 2017, both turnover and headcount has broadly doubled.
In March 2021, Bridgepoint Capital invested in IDHL, providing an exit for FDC and support for the next stage of UK and international growth for this highly successful business.
