Oakley Capital opens German office in Munich

4. Septem­ber 2018

London, Munich — Oakley Capi­tal Private Equity (“Oakley”), a leading Euro­pean private equity firm focu­sed on the mid-market segment, today announ­ced the opening of its Munich office. With this step, the invest­ment company under­li­nes the impor­t­ance of the DACH region for its invest­ment activities.

The new office will be led by Dr. Ralf Schrem­per, Part­ner at Oakley Capi­tal. He joined Oakley in 2017 and has more than 15 years of M&A and corpo­rate invest­ment expe­ri­ence. Ralf Schrem­per is suppor­ted by a German-spea­­king invest­ment team with exten­sive expe­ri­ence in the sectors in which Oakley specia­li­zes — consu­mer, educa­tion and TMT (tech­no­logy, media and telecommunications).

The office opening unders­cores Oakley’s success­ful invest­ment history in the German-spea­­king region. Oakley’s current German invest­ments include Schü­ler­hilfe, a leading provi­der of profes­sio­nal tuto­ring services, and Career Part­ner Group, one of the leading full-service provi­ders of work­force deve­lo­p­ment and private higher education.

In the past, Oakley held stakes in the online dating plat­form Pars­hip Elite and the online consu­mer portal Veri­vox, among others. These invest­ments were sold in 2018.

The Munich office will support Oakley’s stra­tegy to conti­nue to invest in mid-sized compa­nies in Western Europe and deli­ver conti­nuous value crea­tion through an exten­sive network of inter­na­tio­nal entre­pre­neurs and indus­try experts.

Ralf Schrem­per, Part­ner at Oakley Capi­tal: “We are deligh­ted to open Oakley’s first office outside the UK in Munich. As a growth inves­tor, there are a number of attrac­tive invest­ment oppor­tu­nities for us in Germany in our prefer­red sectors of Consu­mer, Educa­tion and TMT. With our new office in Munich, we are now ideally posi­tio­ned to realize further attrac­tive invest­ments in the DACH region.”

Peter Dubens, Mana­ging Part­ner and Co-Foun­­­der of Oakley Capi­tal, added: “Opening an office in Germany is a logi­cal step for Oakley, which will further streng­t­hen our ability to create value through targe­ted invest­ments. We have already achie­ved signi­fi­cant success in the DACH region. With the opening of the new office, we intend to conti­nue on this path of success.”
