Procuritas Capital Investors III

Press Release

Following the success with its first two private equity funds, Procuritas MBO Invest Consortium (“PMIC”) and Procuritas Capital Partners II (“PCP II”), Procuritas is currently organising Procuritas Capital Investors III (“PCI III”), a private equity fund for mid-market investments in Scandinavia.

PCI III has a target size of EUR 300 million and will be organised as one or several limited partnerships under English law. The fund will endeavour to earn a net IRR to investors of at least 25 per cent on every investment, based on Procuritas’ value driven strategy that has proven so successful to date.

Procuritas’ strategy is to play an active role throughout the investment period in order to maximise shareholder returns, including ensuring an efficient deal structure and developing the company’s strategy with respect to, inter alia, growth, improving margins and reducing capital requirements.

PCI III will primarily invest in mid-sized Scandinavian companies with sales between EUR 50-200 million. The most important investment criteria are:

  • a strong and dedicated management team with a proven track record and a willingness to make a considerable equity investment;
  • a unique market position with a sustainable competitive advantage.

Moreover, PCI III will take advantage of the Nordic region’s leading international position in the IT, Telecom and New Media sector by bringing the “new economy” into old economy companies to create value. Access to local expertise will be utilised in strategy development and restructuring of portfolio companies.

Deal flow is generated by the large network of sources developed by Procuritas, Procuritas Partners and the International Advisory Board. Procuritas has at present a deal flow of over a hundred potential targets per year in the mid-market segment.

Since its inception, Procuritas’ activities have been characterised not only by strong involvement by its partners on the boards of the portfolio companies, but also by the high level of personal ownership, ranging from 7 to 12 per cent, in the advised funds. Partners in Procuritas will invest approximately 5% of total commitments in PCI III.
