How do we work?

As investors, we are active – we influence a business by setting goals, putting the right management team in place, contributing to strategy development and monitoring its implementation. We take an active role in decisions that influence a company’s value.

We take a long-term approach to any business we acquire, selling it only when it is ready for that and is attractive to potential buyers, or when offers are in line with the company’s future prospects.

Investment philosophy

Our goal is to create value, so we invest in acquiring competitive businesses.

We aim to increase the value of these businesses not only by allocating additional capital or management resources or looking for other opportunities, but also by exploiting their potential for expansion.

We are always seeking to expand our investment portfolio. We are fast and flexible, so we do not avoid complicated transactions.

We do not have a strict minimum investment amount, but we aim to keep the majority of investments above €3,000,000. In businesses where we already operate, we do not rule out smaller acquisitions.

We are interested in:

  • competitive businesses with potential to successfully expand, organically or through acquisitions, and offering other opportunities to increase their value. We are ready to provide additional capital or management resources for business expansion;
  • “problem” assets and complex transactions: we can help resolve shareholder conflicts and acquire heavily indebted businesses.

We have extensive experience in working together with executives in management buy-outs. So, we are ready to cooperate in this area as well.

Experienced professionals

Since its incorporation in 1991, Invalda INVL has concluded dozens of acquisitions, sales and capital raising transactions in Central and Eastern European countries. Buyouts, in particular, are an area where we have built up tremendous experience. The total value of our transactions is over €1.5 billion.

We see partnership as one of our strengths, so these deals have been made in collaboration with both foreign private equity funds and local entrepreneurs.

 

These transactions have brought benefits not only to Invalda INVL, but also to our partners, including company managers, minority shareholders and other investors.
