Ventizz Capital Partners Changes Name

Ventizz Capital Partners has changed its name and will operate under the new brand, Vorndran Mannheims Capital. The firm is an established player in the European private equity mid‐market, particularly in the German‐speaking region, Benelux and the Nordic region.

ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Friends and Partners,
Looking back on more than ten successful years of Ventizz Capital Partners, we are delighted to announce yet another milestone for our firm. As of today, we will operate under the new brand,
“Vorndran Mannheims Capital”
While our investment approach initially included venture capital – embodied in our former name “Ventizz”, a combination of “venture” and “business” – we refined this strategy very early on by increasingly focussing on private equity investments, particularly in the buy‐out segment. Today, Ventizz is an established player in the European PE mid‐market, particularly in the German‐speaking region, Benelux and the Nordic region. In order to highlight our focus on private equity and buy‐outs, the firm has decided to change its name. From now on, our Swiss entities will operate under the name, “Vorndran Mannheims Capital AG”, while the German entity will operate under the name, “Vorndran Mannheims Capital Advisors GmbH”. We will continue to pursue our proven and successful strategy under this new brand name.
For 12 years, Vorndran Mannheims Capital has delivered strong investment returns. Since its establishment, the firm has invested in four PE funds with total capital under management of € 675 million across 47 transactions. By means of our differentiated, deep operational value‐added strategy as well as our disciplined investment criteria, 22 of these investments have been fully realised. All realised or publicly traded assets of our Funds II – IV have generated more than 100% gross IRR as of March 31, 2012.
With the exception of our brand name, nothing will change. The investment strategy will continue to focus on the German‐speaking region, Benelux and the Nordic region. We will continue to invest in mid cap – companies with revenues between € 20 and € 400m, operating in three core industry sectors in which our team has considerable investment and operational experience: (i) high value‐ added manufacturing, (ii) renewable energy/clean‐tech, and (iii) information and communication technologies.
With a senior leadership team of four partners with market‐leading expertise and 18 investment professionals as well as a strong reputation, an established network and offices located across Germany, Switzerland and Austria, Vorndran Mannheims Capital is perfectly situated to continue to exploit the promising investment opportunities in our target markets.
We look forward to continue working with you in the future – under a new brand name, but remaining, as ever, a distinct and trusted partner.
Yours sincerely,
Vorndran Mannheims Capital Advisors GmbH
