News: April 2017

The founders of Scottish brewery BrewDog have sold a 22% stake in the business to an American private equity firm.

James Watt and Martin Dickie, who set up BrewDog in 2007, have sold the shares to TSG Consumer Partners for £213 million. The deal values the business at £1 billion. Watt and Dickie remain the largest shareholders and will continue to control the company.

Investors in BrewDog’s ‘Equity for Punks’ crowdfunding scheme will have the opportunity to sell 15% of their shares (with a cap of forty shares per investor) at the same valuation.
