YPOG advises DUBAG on the €80m fundraising of its latest fund

26. March 2024

Munich/ Berlin — The DUBAG team is plea­sed to announce the final closing of its third, over­sub­scri­bed LEO III fund with a total invest­ment volume of EUR 80 million. — Despite a chal­len­ging fund­rai­sing envi­ron­ment, the DUBAG team was able to close the new LEO III fund with the targe­ted cap of EUR 80 million in inves­tor commit­ments. With this volume, LEO III is roughly twice as large as its predecessor.

The invest­ment focus of the new LEO III fund is on compa­nies in special situa­tions, in parti­cu­lar spin-offs from conglo­me­ra­tes and tail-end situa­tions of PE inves­tors on a fund basis. The target turno­ver ranges from EUR 20 million to EUR 400 million. LEO III invests equity tickets from EUR 5 to 20 million and has direct access to a broad network of finan­cing part­ners willing to support chal­len­ging situa­tions. Tran­sac­tions with elec­tric vehic­les of up to EUR 125 million are included in the scope of investment.

“The coming years offer nume­rous exci­ting invest­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties with a variety of special situa­tions. With us, inves­tors have the oppor­tu­nity to parti­ci­pate in these inte­res­t­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties. Our track record shows attrac­tive returns for our inves­tors,” explains Emanuel Catta­nei (photo © DUBAG), Part­ner M & A at DUBAG. “The inte­rest shown by insti­tu­tio­nal inves­tors in the new fund has signi­fi­cantly excee­ded our expectations.”

YPOG provi­ded compre­hen­sive legal advice to DUBAG Group on the final closing of its third fund Lenbach Equity Oppor­tu­ni­ties III.

Like its prede­ces­sor, the new fund is speci­fi­cally struc­tu­red to enable active support of the port­fo­lio compa­nies by the DUBAG Group. This commer­cial struc­ture sets the DUBAG Group apart from many other German PE investors.
