Early Stage and Venture Capital
On certain carefully selected cases and mainly recurring to its own resources, PEP has made investments in Early Stage situations, where general conditions and management quality and skills have been considered fitting with its investment approach.
SPACs (Special Purpose Acquisition Companies)
Thanks to the strategic partnership developed with Equita Group S.p.A., since 2017 Private Equity Partners has been able to operate through the instrument of the SPAC, a vehicle particularly suited to companies aiming to a fast listing on a Stock Exchange, minimizing the risks and uncertainties linked to the process and benefiting at the same time from the support of highly qualified and professional institutional partners, both before and after the listing.
In this type of deals, successfully carried out by Private Equity Partners for a long time, specific categories of investors, both institutional and private ones (Family offices included) are involved, whose characteristics and timing of investment are consistent with the needs and dimensions of the investee companies and who can contribute to the development of the investee companies with useful relationships and contacts.
In this type of operations, Private Equity Partners cooperates with the Searcher as a Sponsor/Accelerator and specific categories of investors are selected, who can provide their professional support, contacts and relation network, both at a national and international level.
