yfm printingUK private equity firm YFM Equity Partners has backed the £3.9m MBO of wide format digital printing business Macro Art, the creator of the world’s largest printed movie poster.

YFM invested £2.1m as part of the deal for Macro Art, which was set up by husband and wife team John and Gretchen Walker in 1992.

The company had a £6.7m turnover in the last financial year and expects to increase that by eight per cent in the next.

YFM investment director Mary Broadhead, who led the deal, said: “We are delighted to support [managing director James Jennings] and the team as they prepare to capitalise on the increased marketing spend of companies and organisations throughout the UK and Europe and invest in the latest high-tech printing equipment to support their growth plans.”

Macro Art holds the Guinness World Record for the largest printed movie poster after creating a 1.3-tonne behemoth for Bollywood movie Boss.
