PRESS RELEASE

Ventizz Capital Partners (“Ventizz”) is pleased to announce the successful closing of Ventizz Capital Fund IV, L.P. (the “Fund”) with EUR 450 million (c. $650 million) of total commitments, making the Fund one of the largest private equity vehicles for German speaking Europe. Raised in approximately six months, the Fund closed above its initial EUR 350 million target and was more than 50% over-subscribed at its final closing. Investment advisers to the Fund are Ventizz Private Equity AG in St.Gallen and Ventizz Capital Partners Advisory AG in Duesseldorf.


The Fund will seek to continue the Funds' predecessors' (“Ventizz Funds”) seasoned strategy of executing primarily control growth buyout investments of small- to medium high-growth high valueadded industrial businesses, with headquarters or substantial operations principally in German-speaking Europe. It partners with companies where it believes a key characteristic of their business
model (e.g. product, technology, process) provides them with a fundamental advantage versus competitors, thereby seeking to ensure that accelerated expansion is profitable and sustainable.

 

The Fund focuses on well established companies, typically with revenues of between EUR 10 million and EUR 100 million, at a key inflection point in their growth path, where Ventizz can leverage its unique competencies to support management and unlock future value with a view towards generating superior returns.


Ventizz is being led by Dr. Helmut Vorndran, Reinhard L
