Brockhaus establishes technology-focused industrial holding company
BCM AG, with its long-term orientation, offers the opportunity to fully exploit the entire value potential of investments. In the case of private equity funds with a limited term, on the other hand, it is sometimes necessary to sell a portfolio company before the full potential can be realized. Our strategy is aimed at increasing the value of our investments over the long term. This is even more possible with our new company. After the targeted listing, investors will gain additional fungibility in an inherently illiquid asset class.
Our new structure is advantageous for both investors and portfolio companies. We have found a good role model for our strategy in the USA in “Roper Technologies”. The successful establishment of this technology group describes very well what we are also currently working on.
Over three private equity fund generations, we have invested in 23 companies. Since we focus on buyouts and growth financing, our average GROSS money multiple in this regard is 2.1x and the IRR is 43%.
We have done very well with our long-term investment strategy and have been able to develop a large number of companies very successfully. That is why we are continuing to invest — now with a long-term approach — exactly as we have done in the past. Innovation and technology leaders offer very specific and significant advantages: strong differentiation from existing and new competitors as well as market leadership in the niche, above-average growth and high profitability combined with low capital intensity. We have been specializing in this type of business for 18 years now.
