Successful businesses grow constantly – through acquisitions, expansion of their network of branches or development of new markets. Even for medium sized companies, going international is nowadays virtually unavoidable.
A company's growth should be soundly based on adequate equity. It is a matter of simple business prudence to refrain from financing new investments solely with loans. That applies particularly to expansion abroad. With private equity support medium sized companies can weather teething troubles and setbacks without constantly having to pay back creditors. At the same time, they keep a free hand to run their business.
The HANNOVER Finanz Group has many years of experience in funding growth and expansion. The evergreen nature of its funds has enabled the private equity partner to support growth in some of the companies in the portfolio for periods of ten years and more.
One of the most impressive examples of expansion funded with equity by the HANNOVER Finanz Group is the Rossmann drugstore chain. Further examples can be found under Portfolio.
