Closed our fifth fund
We are pleased to announce the first and final close of our fifth fund (‘Fund V’) in March 2022. The new fund has a hard cap of EUR 90 million and our team will continue to follow the same investment philosophy it has followed very successfully over recent decades.
Since 1999 we focus on making investments in medium-sized companies with significant growth and/or improvement potential. Since our inception, we remain committed to the concept of ‘hands-on investing’ as most companies require a commitment that goes far beyond pure deal-making and financial investment alone. The Nimbus team have deep operational and strategic skills which form the basis of strong partnerships with management teams. Our four main deal-types are:
• (complex) corporate carve-outs;
• buying from family owners;
• profit improvement and growth situations that can benefit from our hands-on approach;
• special situations.
Over the last 20 years, our team has built an exceptional track record in investing in companies that are at a crossroads in their development. We managed to transform companies into fundamentally healthy businesses with a clear long-term growth strategy both preserving and creating thousands of jobs through its investment. We will continue to invest in companies with headquarters in Northern Europe with a focus on the Benelux, DACH region, and the United Kingdom. Nimbus aims to invest in companies across all sectors, that have a healthy core activity and exhibit potential that can be realized through additional development, operational improvements and/or growth, which can benefit from the extensive international operating experience of our professionals.
