Ufenau VI closes at hard cap of 560 million euros

26. March 2019

Zug (Switz­er­land) — The funds Ufenau VI German Asset Light (incl. co-inves­t­­ment funds) advi­sed by Ufenau Capi­tal Part­ners with a volume of EUR 560 million have been success­fully closed. Like their prede­ces­sors, the funds were heavily oversubscribed.

In addi­tion to more than 50 well-known entre­pre­neu­rial perso­na­li­ties who belong to the network of Ufenau Indus­trie Part­ner, the circle of inves­tors could again be supple­men­ted by further insti­tu­tio­nal “blue chip” inves­tors from the USA, Europe (inclu­ding England) and Asia.

Ufenau VI follows the iden­ti­cal invest­ment stra­tegy as its success­ful prede­ces­sor funds. The focus is again on majo­rity invest­ments in “asset light” service compa­nies in Germany, Switz­er­land and Austria with reve­nues of 15 — 150 million euros and profi­ta­ble busi­ness models, active in the 5 sectors: Busi­ness Services, Educa­tion & Life­style, Healt­care, IT and Finan­cial Services. A syste­ma­tic buy & build stra­tegy supports the orga­nic growth of the companies.

In total, the new fund is aiming for a further 10 — 12 invest­ments in the D/A/CH region over the next few years. In paral­lel with the expan­sion of the busi­ness acti­vity, the team has been greatly enlar­ged and now compri­ses five part­ners and a total of over 20 invest­ment professionals.

On this basis, we will remain the prefer­red part­ner for, among other things, succes­sion situa­tions in German-spea­­king coun­tries in the future.”

AXON Part­ners, based in Zug and London, again acted as exclu­sive place­ment agent for the fundraising.
