When it was acquired by Bridgepoint in 2004, Pets at Home had around 100 stores and employed 2,700 people. By 2010, when the business was sold, it had more than 250 stores and 4,500 employees.
In addition to delivering financially, the company has been transformed, with staff turnover reduced from nearly 80% to under 20% a year, 1,500 jobs created, and more resources directed towards product development, a new multi-channel proposition and a rebranding. On top of this, the company promoted responsible pet ownership, and in 2009 alone, Pets at Home re-homed 40,000 animals and raised £750,000 for Support Adoption, its re-homing charity. In addition, revenues more than doubled during the investment, and EBITDA almost quadrupled.
