In the course of the Realignment Mutares develops the investments strategically and operationally: Mutares consultants support the companies in investments or in the development of innovative new products, in sales and in the sustainable adjustment of production until the company has re-established itself as an independent, profitable company. This is followed by further measures to push organic growth.
In the Optimization phase, Mutares clearly differs from classical investors that provide only capital. Mutares acts as an active investor and develops permanent and flexible action plans for the investments. In the course of an active investment management, Mutares continuously develops new business opportunities in the investments and supports their development. This explicitly includes the regular review of add-on acquisitions in order to drive and achieve the ambitious growth targets through a focused buy&build approach.
Harvesting is the final step before the Exit. The realization of the value potential of the individual investments is actively pursued after passing through all development phases in order to realize a profitable exit from the company. In this case, the target is 7 to 10 times return on invested capital.
