On Decem­ber 1, 2015, bm|t beteili­gungs­man­age­ment thürin­gen GmbH (bm|t) launched another fund called Mit­tel­stands-Fonds Thürin­gen GmbH & Co. KG (MFT). The fund has a vol­ume of €40 mil­lion and invests in estab­lished small and medium-sized com­pa­nies that have above-aver­age growth poten­tial, are prof­itable and gen­er­ate at least €2 mil­lion in sales. The fund invests in growth sit­u­a­tions and suc­ces­sion plans such as man­age­ment buy-outs or man­age­ment buy-ins. The fund investors are the Ärztev­er­sorgung Thuringia and the Thüringer Aufbaubank.

Over the next five years, MFT will invest up to €8 mil­lion per com­pany as equity or mez­za­nine cap­i­tal. The fund focuses on the sec­tors of engi­neer­ing & automa­tion, health­care, micro- and opto­elec­tron­ics, soft­ware / IT, mate­ri­als and energy.

In early Novem­ber 2015, bm|t took over the man­age­ment of two new funds with a total vol­ume of about €56 mil­lion. “With three new funds, we can now offer appro­pri­ate equity financ­ing to com­pa­nies at every stage of their busi­ness devel­op­ment. The Thüringer Start-up Fund (TSF), with a fund vol­ume of €18.75 mil­lion, focuses on early stage and start-up financ­ing. For the sub­se­quent growth and expan­sion stage, the Thüringer Wach­s­tums­Beteili­gungs­Fonds (WBF) was launched with a fund vol­ume of €37.5 mil­lion. The MFT focuses on attrac­tive growth and suc­ces­sion sit­u­a­tions of estab­lished larger com­pa­nies,” said Udo Werner, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of bm|t.
