Investment Phase

Should we be invited to invest our time and capital, preferably alongside current owners, we will follow a predefined process. We will evaluate the business and investment opportunity based upon certain Investment Criteria and Investment Considerations. These include the formulation of a shared agenda, ambition and gameplan.

We have documented the Investment Criteria and Investment Considerations here.

Value Creation Phase

We will work jointly to grow and optimize the business in accordance with the agreed gameplan, following a decision to invest.

Exit Phase

When the time is right we will prepare for and exit the business jointly through an industrial or financial sale, or we may list the company on a stock exchange.
