Munich, 16 September 2021 – Mutares SE & Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A2NB650) (“Mutares”) yesterday presented the key points of its new and significantly accelerated growth strategy at its Capital Markets Day. More than 150 investors, analysts and press representatives attended the Capital Markets Day, which was held in hybrid form as a face-to-face event at FIFTY HEIGHTS in Frankfurt/Main and online. Under the motto “Creating Value by Mastering Special Situations”, the Management Board explained Mutares’ accelerated growth strategy.

The current market environment is leading to a massive increase in opportunities for Mutares. “We want to grow further and faster, execute transactions in the order of Lapeyre, and achieve at least EUR 5 billion in revenues at Group level by the end of 2023. Mutares’ net result should reach the target corridor of 1.8% – 2.2% of Group revenues in the medium to long term,” says Johannes Laumann, CIO of Mutares. Therefore, the Management Board is currently examining various options to finance further strategic growth, including a capital increase with subscription rights combined with an uplisting to the regulated market of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Prime Standard). Mutares will make final decisions at a later date, depending on the market and other conditions. Hauck & Aufhäuser, Jefferies and Duxebridge Capital are acting as financial advisors to Mutares.

“The successes of the past 24 months clearly demonstrate what is feasible at Mutares with our value-oriented buy-and-build approach and our dynamic team. We want to and will use the dynamics of the market and our reputation to take the Mutares Group into a new revenue dimension and further expand our market position as a leading private equity investor for special situations,” said Robin Laik, founder and CEO of Mutares, on the sidelines of the Capital Markets Day 2021.
