Where our support creates value.

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

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 we generate sustainable value in close collaboration with our partner entrepreneurs.

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. We therefore recommend that succession planning be tackled as early as possible to achieve a succession solution that meets the needs of all participating stakeholders.  Working closely with both generations, we craft the ideal strategy for a smooth and successful transition.

Growth Equity: 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. With its extensive expertise, Bregal Unternehmerkapital has used a significant amount of its capital to fund growth initiatives of portfolio companies and thereby drive long-term value creation. Unternehmerkapital is an ideal solution for the growth financing of promising business models and emerging businesses.

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.

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

When a management team takes the step up to ownership, either as a management buy-out or management 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.

Secondary: Unternehmerkapital as a long-term investor

Unternehmerkapital is an excellent alternative when existing equity investment 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 investment and flexible debt capital solutions. Our support enables entrepreneurs to expand their companies’ production capacity, achieve organic growth, generate partial realizations and complete accretive add-on acquisitions.
