Typically we acquire a controlling stake in companies,
- that no longer fit with the core business of a larger corporation and need to be “carved out”;
- where a change of ownership solves difficulties in the succession of the company’s senior management or
- that need turn-around support.
mutares prefers to invest in companies that have an established and proven business model combined with a strong brand. We do not have any limitations regarding a particular industry. Typically the companies we acquire have annual sales volume of more than € 10 million.
mutares has access to a variety of different sources for financing its acquisition activities. In addition to mutares financed investments, we often work with several private and institutional investors who invest along side us.
Management and employees of our portfolio companies are key to the change process in their organization as our success is dependent on their qualifications and engagement. Only by working together with the local teams can we create meaningful value. Offering a significant variable compensation program to management and employees is essential to support the development of our companies.
