Private Equity

Re-shoring creates a huge opportunity for European industries. We invest in the consolidation of export driven fragmented industrial sectors to maximize value through synergies and growth.

The trend of European re-industrialization, fast-growing manufacturing exports, highly fragmented industrial sectors, and generational changes in ownership shape this context.

Technology and rising costs in Asia reduced labor cost arbitrage. Push for European re-industrialization and for shorter, more resilient, and integrated supply chains.

Portuguese industrial sectors with strong exporting potential growth. Demand to grow following structural trends for re-shoring, accelerated by supply-chain shocks caused by Covid and Russian war on Ukraine.

Target segments are highly fragmented, presenting succession issues. Many have long track records of solid profits and competitive capabilities.

Consolidation gains, operational and efficiency improvements, conservative leverage, scale and scope effects, growth, and multiple arbitrages drive value creation
