In Central Eastern Europe, through our network of local contacts (excluding Russia, but including Ukraine and Turkey), AXA Private Equity intends to identify businesses that will benefit from the superior mid- to long-term growth potential of the CEE region, driven by domestic demand or export opportunities, or where the expertise and contacts of AXA Private Equity can add value in terms of opening up new opportunities or improving the operational performance of the company. We will also seek to identify companies with good growth prospects hampered in their expansion by capital constraints.
We take mostly controlling interests in small and mid cap companies valued at between €20m to €300m, with a focus on the range between €20 and €150m. We then launch a major programme to add value and boost growth in these companies, advised by our local team and their local networks in all the countries in the region.
We invest via minority interests, protected by shareholder agreements and strong exit rights, in mature and profitable companies. To a limited extent, we may also invest in listed companies on secondary markets.
Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey and Ukraine. Currently, the team is focused mainly on Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and the Baltic countries.
