Value creation

Apax Partners focuses the growth strategy of its portfolio companies on three specific areas: internationalisation, build-ups and digital transformation.

Focused on growth

Apax Partners invests primarily in companies with strong fundamentals and a potential for accelerated growth through strategic and operational change.

Collaboration

Apax Partners’ relationship with the management teams is based on a shared enterprise vision, strictly aligned financial interests, and clearly defined respective roles.

Small and mid-cap

Apax Partners targets investments in small and mid-size companies located in Europe. Apax is organised into two investment activities: MidMarket (capitalisation €50–200 million) and Development (capitalisation €10–30 million).

Majority or minority stakes

Apax Partners typically takes majority or significant-minority stakes and has systematic representation on the Boards of its portfolio companies. We also accept minority positions if the transaction is based on a genuine partnership with the management team, which confers us certain rights.

Long-term

Apax Partners typically operates on a five-year investment horizon, though this depends on the specific business plans and value creation objectives.
