Investment Policies

Geography

We invest in Central Europe: the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia under Fund II.

Investment size

The capital invested in each target is in the range of EUR 10-15m. Once we become owners, we dedicate a similar amount to future capital expenditure and/or bolt-on acquisitions.

Ownership

We buy controlling shareholding positions in our portfolio companies.

Sectors

The Danube Sicar (Fund I) has invested into the services sectors: healthcare, software development, generalist equipment rental and food retail.
Fund II will be invested into both manufacturing and services companies.

Typical investment targets

A typical business we invest in should have a tested, solid business model, a strong market position, an established customer-base as well as high margins.
The typical sellers are multinationals exiting their local investments for strategic reasons or local entrepreneurs who want to retire from full-time work.

Investment horizon

We are medium- to long-term investors with an investment horizon of 5 years on average.
