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.
