Portfolio Portfolio Involved Yield

The Food & Agri sector is facing a significant challenge: providing a growing world population with reliable, affordable and honest food.

 

This challenge requires the Food & Agri sector to transition. Anders Invest contributes to this transition by long-term investing in companies that aim to make a difference in the Food & Agri sector. An attractive financial return is important, but we also aim for a “sustainability impact” return.

Portfolio

The Anders Invest Food & Agri fund expects to raise approximately € 10 million in the first fundraising round, depending on deal flow. The fund aims to make investments in companies across the total Food & Agri value chain; “from farm to fork”. The focus will be on companies in the middle of the chain; that work in processing, trade and sales of products. This focus across the value chain means we will look for opportunities in the Netherlands and across borders. Fund management significantly co-invests with their own equity in the fund.

Involved

Anders Invest Fund Management adds value to the portfolio companies by taking a hands-on approach. Moreover, involve our broad investor network to contribute with their knowledge and network to the portfolio companies. 

Yield

The fund will diversify across healthy and growing businesses. As a result, we expect to realize healthy financial returns against manageable risks. We will create value for our portfolio companies by taking a hands-on approach and realizing synergies between the different portfolio companies. 

A key aspect of the Food & Agri fund is that we do not solely focus on financial return. Together with our portfolio companies, we will also set goals to realize a sustainability impact. Here we aim to align this impact with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s)

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. Founded in 1994, TMS focuses on the engineering and delivery of unique custom installations that are used, for example, in the construction of offshore wind farms. Think of pile plugs and foundation installations for the French offshore wind farm at Saint-Nazaire and special cranes and manipulators for use on ships and civil works. The company's customer base consists of established (international) players active in offshore, maritime and civil markets. 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 subscribe to the fund during new fundraising rounds. Depending on deal flow, we organize one to two fundraising rounds per year, in which both new and existing investors can participate with a minimal initial investment of € 100.000. 

 

As investor, you will be part of a fund cooperation, which is a typical and fiscally attractive structure for private equity funds. This means that it is possible to take advantage of the participation exemption, also for smaller investments. It is possible to exit the fund by selling fund participation shares to other investors. Anders Invest facilitates this process so that it does not have to sell companies or real estate.
