Tübin­gen — SHS Capi­tal has raised appro­xi­m­ately €270 million for its sixth gene­ra­tion of funds. Due to strong demand, the fund’s origi­nal target volume of 200 million euros was signi­fi­cantly excee­ded and is now more than double that of the prede­ces­sor fund. The invest­ment focus of the new SHS VI fund is on growing Euro­pean health­care companies.

The new fund is targe­ting ten to fifteen invest­ments in the form of both majo­rity and mino­rity stakes. The invest­ment amount of the fund is 10 to 40 million euros. Toge­ther with LPs and other inves­tors, tran­sac­tion values of up to 150 million euros can be reali­zed. SHS invests exclu­si­vely in compa­nies that are alre­ady gene­ra­ting signi­fi­cant sales, are on a growth trajec­tory and have the goal of beco­ming Euro­pean health­care champions.

Inves­tors in the SHS VI Fund include fund of funds, insu­rance compa­nies, pension funds, foun­da­ti­ons, family offices, banks, health­care groups, church inves­tors and entre­pre­neurs. Further­more, the SHS invest­ment team itself has inves­ted significantly.

“Health­care is an indis­pensable sector and ther­e­fore offers many exci­ting oppor­tu­ni­ties for invest­ment. With us, inves­tors have the oppor­tu­nity to parti­ci­pate in the deve­lo­p­ment of this growth market. Our track record to date shows that we have been able to gene­rate attrac­tive returns for our inves­tors while helping to improve health­care through inno­va­tion and opti­mize pati­ent care,” explains Manfred Ulmer-Weber, Mana­ging Part­ner at SHS.

“The volume of the new fund has signi­fi­cantly excee­ded our expec­ta­ti­ons and confirmed our posi­tio­ning as the leading private equity health­care specia­list in the German, and thus largest Euro­pean health­care market. We are very plea­sed that many of our exis­ting SHS inves­tors are also inves­ted in our new fund, in some cases with signi­fi­cant increa­ses in subscrip­ti­ons. In addi­tion, we were able to further inter­na­tio­na­lize our inves­tor base and expand it to include renow­ned addres­ses. We would like to thank our inves­tors for the trust they have placed in us,” says SHS Mana­ging Part­ner Sascha Alilovic.
