How we helped

National Express is a multinational public transport company, operating bus, coach, train and tram services globally. ECI backed National Express in 1991 and refocused the company on its core activities, including the sale of Crosville Wales to British Bus, and purchasing Speedlink, an operator of coaches between Gatwick and Heathrow. After a rapid turnaround the company floated in 1992 and is now valued at a £1.6bn market capitalisation (as at September 2021).
