Ufenau VI Closes at Hard Cap of EUR 560M
Ufenau Capital Partners has reported that the success story of Ufenau Capital Partners continues with the first and final closing of its new fund Ufenau VI German Asset Light with a total size (including parallel funds) of EUR 560 million. As before, Ufenau VI and its parallel funds were oversubscribed. In addition to more than 50 entrepreneurs of the Ufenau industry partner network, we are proud to have attracted a broad set of high quality institutional investors from Europe, the USA and Asia. Ufenau VI will pursue the identical investment strategy of its predecessor funds, focusing on:
▪ Majority investments in „Asset Light“ service companies in Germany, Switzerland and Austria
▪ Companies with a turnover of EUR 15 – 150 million and profitable business models
▪ A sector focus on business services, education & lifestyle, healthcare, IT and financial services
▪ Applying a systematic buy-&-build strategy that further supports the organic growth of the companies.
The fund envisages making 10-12 investments in its target region. The Ufenau team has been significantly broadened to a total of 5 partners and more than 20 investment professionals overall. Ralf Flore, managing partner, comments: „Owing to the successful development of our portfolio, the growth of the team and our proven investment strategy we are grateful to have once again attracted a first class institutional investor base. Our new fund will allow us to continue to be the preferred partner for succession and other management buyout situations in German-speaking Europe.” AXON Partners, with offices in Zug and London, served as exclusive placement agent for the fundraising.
