Restructuring

Emerging stronger from adversity

When companies are in a restructuring phase, they need to tackle various challenges of an operational and financial nature; a situation which requires experienced, reliable partners.

Clear strategy and a strong team

If there is a clearly-defined strategy and the restructuring is based on a coherent concept, we will invest in companies in this challenging phase. We focus on companies which have financial challenges to overcome e.g. excess debt.

In these special situations, the key is always to work together with a management team or an active Advisory Board Member and to implement a clear strategy and vision.

We have advised many companies in these situations, have invested in them and have helped them to successfully reposition themselves. Examples of such companies include Borsig and Gossen Metrawatt – find out more about them here.

Alignment of interests

Basic principles

One of the key capiton basic principles is for us to pursue the same goal as our portfolio companies and their management. It’s not about quick profits at any price, but about the long-term health and value-appreciation prospects of your company.

Growth

At capiton we aim for solid growth, fully utilising the company’s potential. This means that we generally reserve additional capital for our portfolio companies to enable further growth. We do not charge our portoflio companies any monitoring fees. Excessive levels of debt are also not part of our philosophy.

Support

capiton actively provides advice and expertise in the dynamic value-appreciation phase, without getting involved in the operational side of your business. You will benefit from our substantial experience of similar cases.

Prospects

In the end you will create a company which is unique in the market, well-equipped for the future, provides secure employment and is more valuable than ever: a company which you, your employees and we can be proud of – your company.
