Mutares SE & Co. KGaA is a European private equity investor specialised in turnaround situations and corporate carve-outs. Potential acquisition opportunities are usually underperforming and/or non-core assets that have significant operational improvement potential and need to be repositioned as a stand-alone company.

Mutares primarily invests in companies that have an established business model and operate along the three industry segments Automotive & Mobility, Engineering & Technology and Goods & Services. Platform investments usually range between EUR 50m and EUR 500m in terms of sales.

Mutares actively supports and develops its portfolio companies with its own operational team improving the company’s performance on site. Additionally, Mutares’ investment team supports the growth of the companies through strategic add-on acquisitions. The objective is to achieve a significant increase in value with a focus on sustainable growth of the portfolio company.
