The changing environment creates new opportunities in the German mid-cap market. Germany is the largest economy in Europe and behind the UK the second largest European buyout market. The combined value of transactions has almost tripled since 1997 with a constant number of deals around 140 p.a. in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. 80% or ca. 125 of those deals were transactions below € 75M.
Ingenium Capital expects this number to increase in the coming years and believes that now is the right time to invest as structural changes and a positive momentum can be expected to drive a significant number of mid-cap deal opportunities.
