Industry fund focus and working method

Our values Investment focus Approach

Our values

Reciprocal

Reciprocity is that you treat another person the way you want to be treated yourself. Respect for mutual interests is the starting point. We do not enter into unilateral agreements in which only one party maximizes its profit. No big contracts and legal tricks. We always go for win-win situations.

Long-term oriented

Sustainability is a trend, but actually acting sustainably is a challenge. This means, among other things, that we take the tension between (short-term) financial results, employee development and environmental responsibility seriously. Only then will sustainable value creation be created, also for investors. We want to be able to account for our deals to future generations.

Transparent

Being transparent starts with accountability. We are vulnerable in this respect. Do not use a hidden agenda, but be direct and open. This means that we also admit mistakes when we make them. Transparency promotes long-term relationships.

Collaborative

Successful organizations are characterized by flexibility and innovation. You can only achieve this together. This means that everyone must be involved, there must be targeted and broad communication where contradiction is a source of inspiration. This way you build trust and commitment.

Investment focus

Branch

The Anders Invest team feels at home with technical companies. Within a production or development environment, possibly in combination with service and trade, we quickly know where the challenges are due to extensive experience. We have proven successful in shaping growth within a variety of (international) companies.

Type of entrepreneur

We are committed shareholders and think long term. We work from our values and consider it important to keep talking about this with the entrepreneur. We would like to work with enthusiastic entrepreneurs who want to work with us on value-oriented growth. That is why we do not participate in auction-like bidding situations.

Size

We focus on companies with more than 25 employees and / or a turnover of more than € 5 million. We provide risk capital from € 1 million to approximately € 30 million (including co-investment volume) to companies with an enterprise value of up to approximately € 100 million (both majority and minority interests). This means that our focus - depending on the valuation - is suitable for companies with an EBITDA level of a maximum of € 15 million. Start-ups and early stage investments do not match our focus and expertise.

Approach

Relationship

It starts with an introductory meeting, preferably at the company‘s location. When there is a click and there is mutual trust, the process starts. We immerse ourselves in your company and your market. It is important to us how you work and with whom you work. We will be involved for a long time, so the foundation must be good.

Interest

We provide venture capital - from € 1 million to € 50 million - and aim to acquire shares (minority or majority). We invest with our own resources and with money entrusted to us by third parties. In addition, we have a long investment horizon of at least 10 years.

Influence

We are looking for influence and not for power. We gain influence on business operations through our know-how and involvement. We draw up our cooperation contracts with a low legal profile. We limit ourselves to the essentials and we don‘t want to make money with legal tricks. Our extensive network also opens a number of extra doors.

Anders Invest participates in Banzo

On March 31, 2021, Anders Invest realized a 60% participation in Banzo from Hoogeveen. The company designs and supplies recycling installations. Banzo has a turnover of € 15-20 million and employs more than 35 permanent employees. For Anders Invest, it is the 21st holding in its industry fund.   Founded in 1947, Banzo ( website ) designs, assembles, installs and maintains recycling facilities for all major Dutch garbage processors. The company specializes in so-called post-separation installations, in which residual waste (gray waste flow), green waste or construction / demolition waste is subdivided into separate waste flows that can then be further upgraded to valuable residual flows and raw materials with additional reprocessing installations. In this way, waste processors are able to reduce waste incineration and Banzo contributes to the cradle-to-cradle use of raw materials. The Netherlands is at the forefront in the approach to recycling, changing legislation in the European Union that prevents landfilling and incineration of waste offers opportunities for Banzo abroad.   Anders Invest has acquired its interest from the current owner and general manager Mr Marcel Kroon. He took over Banzo in 2011 and the company has grown significantly since then. After the takeover, the focus will mainly be on further professionalizing the company and making use of the international expansion opportunities that the company has. Mr Kroon will remain with the company for an indefinite period as shareholder and general manager and looks forward to furthering the company together with the team in Hoogeveen and Anders Invest.

Investment in TMS Werkendam

On 26 May 2021 Anders Invest acquired 70% of the shares in TMS from Werkendam. The company develops and assembles custom mechanical installations for use in offshore wind, maritime and civil markets. TMS has a turnover of € 15-20 million and employs approximately 25 permanent employees. It is the 22nd investment in the Anders Invest Industry Fund.

TMS is involved by its customers from the concept phase in the engineering of the special and deviating solutions that are required for the ever-changing applications and increasing safety requirements. The TMS workforce consists mainly of engineers. Production of the specific parts is outsourced to partners, the final assembly takes place in-house. The company is located in the harbor of Werkendam, where it has a modern office, recently built assembly halls and quay facilities. Anders Invest acquired its interest from the current owners of TMS, Mr Cees van Wendel de Joode and Mr Marco van Driel. They founded TMS in 1994 and since then the company has grown strongly. In mid-2020, the management was supplemented with the arrival of Mr Jan Albert Westerbeek. Jan Albert, former CEO at IHC IQIP, has a large network in the industry in which TMS is active. His experience with processes and adjacent markets are of great value for the further professionalization and expansion of TMS. The management jointly holds a 30% interest and remains associated with the company for an indefinite period of time.

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.
