Sofindev is an independent private equity firm, investing in small and medium sized enterprises in Belgium since 1991. Sofindev raised a new fund in May 2015, Sofindev IV, with a committed capital of 107 MEUR to invest in successful companies with strong growth and international ambitions. Amongst its investors are its historical shareholders Sofina and Colruyt, as well as a limited number of new investors, including some of the founders of our (past) portfolio companies.
In general, we invest in healthy, profitable companies, with a strong market position and growth potential. We have a wide industry focus, and are keen on niche players with international growth potential and/or buy-and-build potential.
We provide financing for significant minority or majority equity tickets, shareholder loans, growth capital, and small (< 15 MEUR equity) to mid-market buy-outs (15 – 150 MEUR equity).
Other investment criteria are:
- Minimum EBITDA of 3 MEUR;
- Minimum enterprise value of 15 MEUR;
- Equity ticket size of 5 to 20 MEUR;
Although we are focused on Belgian corporates, we also consider (co-)investment deals in neighboring countries (i.e. the Netherlands, Luxemburg, France and Germany) or with a Belgian link. Also, companies with EBITDA below 3 MEUR in case of fast growth and/or buy-and-build potential will be considered.
