Direct investment by VR Equitypartner: Dedicated shareholder for a limited time
In the case of direct investment, VR Equitypartner becomes a co-shareholder, acquiring shares in a limited company, partnership or public stock corporation for a limited time. In many cases, such investments are performed by way of a capital increase. VR Equitypartner regards itself as a fair and entrepreneurially-minded equity-provider. This means that, during the investment phase, we do not perform management tasks, but instead, as a committed shareholder, concentrate on advising the management on strategic issues.
We support our portfolio companies as a sparring partner in many different topics spanning strategy, marketing and sales, through to controlling and financing. Extensive know-how and substantial entrepreneurial experience is also offered by experts from our international and cross-sector network within either the supervisory or advisory board.
Together with the management of portfolio companies, we develop concepts to tackle strategic challenges (for example, a change in the market environment), or to support the existing business (for instance, a sales concept), and we assist with the implementation of such concepts. Companies supported by VR Equitypartner can also make recourse to our staff's comprehensive know-how, our network, our sector experts, and the cooperative banking group.
All financial solutions are individually tailored towards the company's specific needs.
