Lafayette Mittelstand Capital

What we do
What we look for
What makes us different

Lafayette focuses on control acquisitions of fundamentally attractive companies at turning points in their development (incl. spin-offs, sub-optimal capital structures, capital intense growth situations or other special situations).

Lafayette’s geographic focus is predominantly Germany, Austria, Switzerland with large "Mittelstand" segments for platform investments and selectively adjacent Europe for add-on acquisitions.

 

Key selection criteria when evaluating an investment opportunity include:

  • Revenue: EUR 15 – 150 m

  • Headquarter: Germany, Austria, Switzerland

  • Industry focus (though largely agnostic): Metal engineered products, Plastic engineered products, Food industries, Media & Technology, Consumer & Business Services, General Manufacturing

  • Sustainable, unique and superior differentiation of products, or processes, or know-how vis-a-vis the company's competition

  • Identification of true value creation potentials and areas to add value

  • Attractive Return/Risk Profile

Significant differentiation to “typical” Private Equity

  • Patient capital with a longer-term investment horizon

  • Team players actively supporting companies to achieve their ambitions

  • Proven expertise in unlocking hidden potentials

  • No excessive leverage

  • Ability to act fast - also in situations with incomplete information
