Eisvogel Group AG is a private industrial holding company that invests in UK & DACH growth stage, high margin, value-add industrial and associated service businesses, including enterprise software, that underpin Industry 4.0 or in traditional industry and engineering firms that can benefit from the innovations of the “Smart Factory”.
Eisvogel targets a small number of transactions per year in order to provide our full support to entrepreneurial businesses. We seek to partner with management teams whether they presently run or own the business, or whether they are an experienced group looking to acquire a new business. We can provide flexible transaction structuring and are willing to execute MBOs, MBIs, carve-outs and development capital injections. Due to our family business heritage we also make the perfect owner to take a family owned business to its next stage of growth whilst maintaining the heritage and culture.
Drawing on our family business heritage, and our operational and financial experience, we provide hands-on strategic support to management teams and leverages a diverse global network to assist in transformational growth and international expansion. We operate as an active board member with the aim of developing, both operationally and strategically, the businesses we acquire.
Eisvogel’s holding company structure provides a number of advantages over traditional private equity, including businesses we invest in no restrictions on our holding period, greater flexibility with transaction structure, an ability to invest across the capital structure and an increased alignment of culture and incentives. We work in close partnership with management in an open, transparent style.
Eisvogel is led by an entrepreneurial team based in London and Zurich, and combines the experience of hands-on operational management, private equity investing and family businesses.
