H2 Equity Partners is one of the oldest and most successful mid-market, value-add investors in North-Western Europe with over 200 platform and buy & build transactions completed since 1991.
Our approach and hard work has resulted in a strong track-record. This is based on structural improvements and growth – not on financial engineering. Fundamentally our strategy can be summarised as the aim to “build better businesses”. And as this takes time, our holding period can be longer than that of traditional leveraged buy-out investors, but ultimately this is reflected in the shareholder value created.
Our experienced team of investment professionals, of which most principals have extensive management, consulting or CEO experience, is able to discuss with management and shareholders “at their level of knowledge”. As entrepreneurs with capital, we speak the language of management & entrepreneurs. In the past we have been in your position, we know that a spreadsheet is patient, but actual implementation and delivery of plans is more challenging.
Over the last 28 years there are few sectors we have not been involved in. In the “portfolio” section of our website you can view our existing portfolio as well as a selection of our historic transactions. This will give you a flavour of the breadth and depth of our experience and our geographic coverage: from healthcare to the defense industry, from industrial manufacturing to recruitment and from the west of the Netherlands to the south of Germany!
We continue to learn and thus we are able to broaden our track-record and experience with every transaction we do.
