Food & Agri Fund focus and 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 Food & Agri team feels at home with companies that have a focus on processing and production of food and feed, possibly in combination with services and trade. Based on our broad experience, we can quickly pinpoint the challenges that these companies are facing. We have a strong track record in shaping and accelerating growth in a broad range 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 15 employees and / or a turnover of more than € 10 million. We provide risk capital from € 1 million to approximately € 50 million (including co-investment volume) to companies with an enterprise value of up to approximately € 250 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 € 30 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.

Visscher Caravelle is expanding

  On August 26, 2020, the industrial fund participation Visscher Caravelle acquired UGF Sud from Portugal. The accessory activities of UGF Industry (UGF OES) in France were also acquired. Both parts have been added to the VanProtech division of Visscher Caravelle. This division is mainly active in the production of Van Protection Panels and accessories that protect the inside of delivery vans. UGF Sud and UGF OES produce Van Protection Panels for PSA, Opel and Toyota. The combined turnover of these two activities is approximately € 5 million. UGF Sud will continue to manufacture and sell from Portugal as an independent group company. Delivery is made directly to 2 PSA factories in the region. UGF OES will be transferred to VanProtech Poland and fully integrated therein.   With this acquisition, Visscher Caravelle Automotive can expand its Van Protection activities by 70%. It also means a substantial expansion of its customer portfolio within this activity, a great next step in the strategic plan to become the European market leader in Van Protection products for car manufacturers. Anders Invest stepped in 2 years ago to realize these and other growth plans together with the owner's family. The turnover of the company with 1,880 employees worldwide was € 161 million in 2019.   Tiemen van Dijk, CEO of Visscher Caravelle: “As management, we are very happy with this transaction. While the crisis is still under us, Visscher Caravelle has managed to stay on course and that is what makes this transaction possible. We would like to thank all Visscher Caravelle employees for their contribution to this. ”

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.

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.
