Possible investment structures
This form of investment eliminates the draining of funds to repay debts and all free cash can be invested in growth opportunities.
The fund looks for stable, healthy businesses with strong cash-flow, whose purchases could be funded by a combination of equity funds and bank financing. Subsequently, repaying the acquisition debt from the sources generated by the acquired firm is then one of the factors how the value of the shareholdings is increased.
Many owners who established their businesses in the first half of the 1990s face succession issues. Investing in management buyouts enables existing managers to acquire ownership and strongly motivates them to further develop their businesses.
There are already many experienced management teams in the CR, who are looking for suitable companies, which provide an opportunity for premium valuation of the invested funds. The fund works with experienced HR advisors and management teams in identifying and realizing such opportunities.
