Managing Director, Zachert Private Equity (Zachert Private Equity GmbH)
PE Firm in Grünheide (Mark), Germany
Interests: A sale of a subsidiary that no longer fits the strategy is mostly more efficient than its independent liquidation. This is the case whenever liquidation costs are higher than the income from the sale of assets. A potential conflict with employees, the works council or labour unions will also be omitted. A sale can also be used for an advantage in the press (Independent continuation of business while preserving jobs was made possible through the sale” versus “job loss and protests on the factory shut- down). We can realize deals within several weeks. We generally take majority shareholdings, as we want to share as active shareholders in shaping the development of the companies under our management and also want to be able to act in a potential crisis situation. Our target companies ideally fulfil the following participation criteria: • Excellent market position in a niche market. • Company background with a long tradition, leading in terms of the band and/or products. • Exclusively “old economy”, preferably with corporate group history. • Experienced management team or the tangible possibility to install such Additionally, there should be an experienced employee base with low fluctuation. • The operative business continues, high fluctuation among customers and/or suppliers has not begun yet. • Sales revenues of 10 million euro or more are earned, the financial result is making a loss and a restructuring process has not been initiated yet.
Background: We take over incorporated companies with negative contribution margins for the short term from corporate groups or owners, who do not want to get involved in restructuring efforts of their own. We apply a cross-sectoral and cross-border approach, even for complex international takeovers and initial situations. It can be expected based on our special focus on loss-making companies that the implementation will be swift, professional and discrete. Among our investors are select single family offices, private investors and private equity funds. Transactions can be reviewed on short notice and be realized by means of equity. The registered office of the company is located in Grünheide (Mark), 45 minutes away from the centre of Berlin and in Manhattan (New York).
