AUCTUS Capital Partners
AUCTUS is the most active and leading private equity house for German medium-sized companies. The focus of investments is on majority shareholdings in companies with an annual turnover of between 10 million and 150 million. With currently 23 investment professionals and more than 200 investments in the last 19 years, AUCTUS is the leading private equity company for German-speaking SMEs.
AUCTUS pays special attention to industry-specific buy-and-build strategies in which national and international companies are brought together to form a market leader. The portfolio companies of the investment professional grow on average by 10% per year in terms of employees, sales, and earnings. Within the last years, AUCTUS has received dozens of awards as best German-speaking fund, as well as best buy-and-build fund.
Sustainable growth is a central driver for AUCTUS to build up medium-sized groups of companies. On the one hand, this means organic and inorganic growth by an entrepreneurial investment team and on the other hand a trustful partnership together with the management of the portfolio companies.
AUCTUS means not only success, but also diversity: Over the last 19 years a wide range of different industries – from services, healthcare and IT to education, consumer goods, and services and technology – have been involved in a variety of deals, e.g. standalone deals with a large number of acquisitions, consolidation of classic buy-and-build platforms, or organic development of new platforms.
Our success is the result of the excellent cooperation within the AUCTUS team, which currently consists of 30 employees – 23 of them in the investment team, which together has more than 150 years of private equity experience. But not only our portfolio companies are growing – AUCTUS itself is growing as well.
