Adiuva Capital
Investment Strategy
Adiuva Capital follows a broad, diversified investment approach, not limited to particular industries. Our investors and senior advisors have been investing successfully across industries for decades, and we are following that same tradition. To develop a deep understanding of a specific industry and the target company's business model, we work closely with experienced industry experts, both before and after completion of a transaction.
Our investment criteria
  • € 5 million – € 40 million equity per transaction, smaller or larger investments will be considered on a case by case basis
  • Majority and minority ownership (min. 25%), alongside selected co-investors, as applicable and appropriate
  • Geographic focus on German speaking countries, but also world-wide as part of add-on acquisitions of existing portfolio companies
  • No industry focus; however, we do not invest in real estate, military weapons, infrastructure assets, or start-up companies
  • Experienced, motivated management as well as proven and convincing business model
Types of transactions
We support your growth strategy by providing growth capital as well as experience and industry contacts. Potential growth scenarios might include the introduction of a new product line, an international expansion, or the acquisition of a competitor as part of an industry consolidation.

Corporate succession, when the existing owner is looking for a complete or partial exit, presents another typical investment case. Preserving business continuity is key for us.

As part of a spin-off, a large corporate group might want to dispose of a subsidiary it no longer considers core business. Under new ownership and financially well backed, such companies are often able to realize previously unexpected growth potential.

A Public-to-Private transaction, in which a private investor acquires all outstanding shares and delists the company, can be an appropriate strategy to enhance the value of a business. Mid-and long-term strategic decisions are much easier to be put to work in a closely held, private company than in a listed company, where decisions are often based on quarterly numbers.
