Only those who take risks themselves will be concerned about the long-term development of the company. In this respect, for us, investment and commitment go hand-in-hand. Furthermore, Dacapo's view is that
respect for existing company structures and identities is essential
professional investment can only be guaranteed through professional standards
transparent communication is the basis for all action
mutual trust and fairness are inherent in the investment process and partnership
transactions should be individually tailored to the financial, legal and fiscal interests of those involved
the management in charge should be closely involved in the new capital structure (incentivisation towards commercial success)
as well as capital, a partner must import professional expertise and industrial experience
a commonality of interest must exist between the parties involved in the process
For a company to rise to ever-new market challenges, it needs strong and experienced partners. Our personal relationship to the management on the ground is characterised by entrepreneurial action, incentivisation towards commercial success, and cooperation in a spirit of partnership, as well as mutual trust and respect for existing values. In this context we try as a matter of principle to build on existing management, but are in no way reluctant to further equip management with the necessary resources. We would do this with managers experienced in the sector, and whom we access via our network.
Our expertise, combined with the entrepreneurial spirit which such a company needs in this kind of situation, ensures the success of the investment for the future and hence also supplier reliability and quality in the market.
