When do we invest


  • Medium-sized companies in need: in case of (imminent) bankruptcy or acute succession problems.
  • Mature organizations (no start-ups, no hypes) with a (management-) team that we can build on. If necessary, management will be strengthened. If “the key man risk” is too high, we will not buy in.
  • The companies mainly operate from the Netherlands or Germany.
  • There is evidence of underlying structural growth potential and a sustainable competitive advantage is present or creatable.
  • We don’t have a focus on a specific sector or market, but we need to understand the business and will not get into over-regulated industries.
  • In a turnaround it is important that we can determine what will happen; even if the measures are firm. We therefore always operate from predominant control (majority interest and/or controlling vote).
