Our approach

Egeria Private Equity is structured in two teams in order to optimize value creation for each individual investment. We have a solid backbone of institutional investors, families and team commitment. The portfolio currently consists of 15 companies in various sectors. We have an international approach but focus on companies that have a strong link to the Netherlands,  Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

We firmly believe that people make the difference, that investments in digitalization are key to achieve sustainable growth and that excellence in everything you do makes you stand out from the crowd. Every growth path is different and we actively support our companies with investments, add-on acquisitions or international growth. Entrepreneurs and management teams lead the way and we build on their experience and knowledge. But we do more than providing capital. For instance, we support our companies with the hands-on involvement of our in-house Human capital and Digitalization experts, focusing on building similar competences within the companies.

Egeria encourages growth initiatives that drive sustainable value creation rather than short-term gains. The common denominators we seek in our investments include strong market positions, sustainable business models and committed teams. That is what boldly building together means to us.

Two teams – two strategies:

Funds

We are currently investing our fifth fund with a total equity commitment of €800 million. We invest in healthy businesses in the Netherlands and the DACH region with an enterprise value of up to €350 million with the underlying principle that management is co-owner. Our investment horizon is between five and seven years on average. Our interest lies in businesses with growth potential that are active in a market with attractive prospects.

Our expertise

Human capital

Human capital@2x

The success of an organization depends on its people. We focus on building winning teams in our portfolio companies through capabilities such as team building, talent selection, succession planning, and learning and development. But being successful together is not only a rational or intellectual exercise: we also focus on syncing our heads with our hearts in order to achieve a sustainable high performance.

See how we build high-performing teams at Egeria.

Digitalization

Digitization@2x

Digital technologies are key drivers in every industry, on the one hand enabling new business models and more efficient operations and on the other hand requiring different capabilities when it comes to security and privacy.

Operational excellence

Operational excellence@2x

Sustainable growth and happy customers typically derive from the ability of an organization to focus on what they do best. In achieving operational excellence, we focus on (a) building a performance culture, (b) we help organizations to achieve scalability of their operations and (c) increase operational control through insightful KPI dashboards.

Commercial effectiveness

Understanding your customers’ problems is key for sustainable growth. Drafting a commercial roadmap based on data insights and translating that strategy into customer propositions, pricing models, sales team dynamics and innovative product-market combinations leads to topline growth. We know what it takes for you to increase your commercial effectiveness.

Buy-and-build

Buy and build@2x

Selected acquisitions can accelerate growth in new markets and geographies. We can support management actively through our experience in M&A and our broad network of industry experts.

See how we transformed GoodLife Foods from a Benelux frozen meat company to a North-West European frozen snack platform.

International expansion

International expansion@2x

The majority of our portfolio companies have an international footprint or plan to expand their business abroad. It is critical to understand that one size does not necessarily fit all. Local business practices and customs need to be taken into account when setting up shop abroad. At Egeria we have experience in expanding internationally.

Take a look at how we helped MCi to obtain a significant sales and production footprint in China.
