Criteria for the acquisition of add-on acquisitions
In the area of complementary acquisitions, the strategic fit with our existing portfolio companies is decisive. This is characterised in particular by complementary products, an expansion of the company’s presence or the creation of growth clusters within a segment. Also decisive are the economic potentials that result from a combination of the acquired company with an existing participation.
No turnarounds or start-ups
According to our business model, we do not intervene in the operations of our portfolio companies. Accordingly, we never invest in turnaround situations or startups. Also Minority interests do not suit us. Furthermore we do not acquire any companies in the arms, luxury food or gambling industries.
