Investment in Geraedts Ijzergieterij

On December 30, 2021, Anders Invest realized a 60% participation in Geraedts IJzergieterij from Baarlo. The company manufactures castings from lamellar and nodular cast iron. Geraedts employs approximately 20 permanent employees. It is Anders Invest's 26th participation in its industrial fund. Geraedts, a North Limburg family business founded in 1935, produces castings from lamellar and nodular cast iron for the mechanical engineering, automotive and maritime industries. The company is a hand-moulded foundry specializing in small series up to 16 tons. In the factory in Baarlo, melting is done by means of electro-induction furnaces, which leads to a process with a significantly lower CO2 footprint than using traditional gas cupola furnaces. Geraedts serves customers in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium from Baarlo. By supplying high-quality products, a diversified customer base and by being a reliable and flexible partner for its customers, Geraedts has proven to be very stable and profitable. The Geraedts family will continue to play a key role within the company. Jan Geraedts, former chairman of the trade association and icon in the sector, will retire from the company in view of his age. He conducted the management together with his son Bart, who will remain as general manager. His cousin Mike Geraedts will join the board. Anders Invest, as a partner with a long-term focus, will continue to build the future of Geraedts IJzergieterij together with the family. The trend of local sourcing, demand for increasingly high-quality products and focus on product and customer diversification lead to attractive growth prospects.

Anders Invest seeks € 100 million capital round

Anders Invest is growing rapidly: with 25 employees, 18 transactions have been completed in 2021 and a large number of investments are still in the pipeline. Major capital rounds will start in April at the corporate funds in industry and food & agri and the property fund for rental properties. The recruitment target amounts to a total of approximately €100 million in new capital. Value development in the two large, longer-established industrial and rental housing funds is good and the dividend paid has also increased. The 25 companies in the industrial fund have been hit by the commodities crisis, parts shortages and inflation, but are showing resilience. Despite the turbulence, 2021 was closed with a total performance of 13.9%. The expected effects of the Ukraine war have been included in the valuation in individual cases. Since its inception at the end of 2015, the fund has achieved an average return of over 15% per year. The portfolio companies paid more dividends to the fund, which allowed the dividend to be increased to investors. The industry fund will then have realized an average payment of 8% per year over a period of 7 years. The unique approach and network in the manufacturing industry provide access to new investment opportunities, increasingly as an addition to existing companies. Multiple opportunities are at an advanced stage, kicking off the 9th capital round with a recruitment target of €35 to €40 million. One of these projects is the acquisition of a well-known Dutch consumer products manufacturing company with a turnover of more than €100 million. This will lead to the establishment of a 3rd co-investment fund, for which recruitment has also started. The rental housing fund, the second largest fund of Anders Invest, also developed well. Satisfied tenants and low vacancy rates ensure good operational results. The fund's total performance in 2021 is over 17%. This brings the average performance since the start of the rental housing fund in autumn 2017 to more than 12% per year. Here too, a significantly higher dividend is paid, bringing the average dividend since the start to more than 3.3% per year. The fund recently invested in more than 600 largely new homes in Groningen and Harderwijk that will be built in 2022 and 2023. The purchase price and the expected return on these new projects are good, which means that an investment in the 6th capital round that has now started has an attractive return/risk profile. The recruitment target is between €25 and €30 million. The food&agri fund, which was launched in 2021, has so far made five acquisitions, mostly in the field of healthy and sustainably produced food and animal feed. The most recent investment by this corporate fund concerns Service2Fruit, an online platform for the auction of fruit and vegetables. It offers complete transparency for top fruit online, making it easier for supply and demand to find each other. The fund, which is less than 1 year old, realized a value increase of almost 5%. The team has been expanded with two colleagues so that we can work together with the companies on growth and returns, both financially and in the field of sustainability and social impact. There are currently two promising propositions in the due diligence phase. Further acquisitions are expected in the course of the year and therefore the fund is starting to raise for the 2nd capital round of €15-20 million. Registrations for these 3 capital rounds and the co-investment opportunity close at the end of April. Another round of capital is expected to be launched at the healthcare real estate fund around the summer.

Directors‘ Day 2022

On Wednesday 11 May 2022, the annual Directors' Day of the Anders Invest Industriefonds took place again. An extraordinarily inspiring and energetic day in Maarsbergen where all directors / MTs of the portfolio companies were invited. There were approximately 70 participants. We talked about sustainability, employee development and diversity. Especially themes related to people and planet. Companies shared challenges and solutions with each other. Despite (or perhaps thanks to) the different end markets in which the companies are active, challenges are very similar and a lot is learned from each other.

We are always looking for new investments and investors.

Investors can join the fund in new rounds of capital. Depending on the number of investment opportunities, we organize a capital round once or twice a year, whereby existing and new investors can invest in the fund. The first deposit is from € 100,000. You become a member of a cooperative, a common and fiscally attractive legal entity for funds. Normally your investment would fall within the participation exemption, even with a small interest. Withdrawal occurs in principle by selling the membership rights to another investor. Anders Invest facilitates this process and therefore does not have to sell companies or properties.
