Where our support creates value.

Bregal Unternehmerkapital is the ideal partner for spin-offs, successions, management buy-outs, growth financings and restructurings.

Each new investment involves a unique set of circumstances that require a specially tailored concept. By taking a flexible approach, we can find the ideal solution for a diverse range of scenarios – from the acquisition of majority or minority holdings through to pure equity funding or the use of debt instruments. We have an in-depth understanding of the unique demands of the capital market as well as extensive experience with IPOs and bond issues. Whatever the investment, we always ensure that Unternehmerkapital generates value.

Succession: providing Unternehmerkapital for a new generation

Bregal Unternehmerkapital is part of a family-owned business that has grown over several generations. Few other investors share our understanding of how to transfer a business from one generation to the next. Working closely with both generations, we craft the ideal strategy for a smooth and successful transition.

Growth: providing Unternehmerkapital for expansion

Mid-sized companies are particularly prone to financial constraints that hinder their growth. With Unternehmerkapital, they can overcome these constraints and expand into new markets, build new production facilities and develop new sales channels. Having an extensive experience, Bregal Unternehmerkapital has used a large amount of its committed capital to fund growth initiatives of portfolio companies.

Spin-off/carve-out: providing capital for new companies

When companies refocus on their core activities, they often choose to dispose of specific businesses. Working with the management team, we can help to spin off divisions and provide the financial resources they need to flourish as independent entities. Bregal has a strong track record as a reliable and experienced partner to a number of groups and companies facing such situations.

MBI/MBO: providing the capital required to become a business owner

When a management team takes the step up to ownership, either as a buy-out or buy-in (MBO/MBI), they need an expert partner to help them succeed. We support every stage in the process and then remain on board, as a majority or minority shareholder, for many years to come.

Restructuring: a fresh start with new capital

Unternehmerkapital helps crisis-hit companies get back on track with a combination of experience, expertise and financial firepower. Working closely with the management, we chart a new course and lay the foundation for sustained growth.

Secondary: Unternehmerkapital as a long-term investor

Unternehmerkapital is an excellent alternative when existing equity providers pull out. Bregal can also respond faster than conventional investment funds.

Finance solutions: tailor-made and focused on growth

Unternehmerkapital provides flexible, tailor-made finance solutions across the entire capital structure, e.g. structured equity, mezzanine financing and flexible debt capital solutions. Our support enables companies to expand their production capacity, achieve organic growth and move forward with acquisitions.
