The management team of STU has many years of experience in the international private equity business as well as in the successful restructuring of companies.

We invest in companies in particularly challenging situations we are confident to be able to significantly increase the company value.

Typical examples are:

  • Unsolved succession planning
  • Existing shareholders conflicts
  • Carve-outs
  • Portfolio optimization
  • Restructuring/ insolvency cases

We preferably acquire the majority of companies or invest together with partners, for example in the context of management buy-ins or buy-outs.

Our investment strategy is based on the following:

  • Long-term investment
  • Investment of private equity
  • Buy-in as executives
  • Operational support for our investments 

The selection of companies is not dependent on the specific industry sectors, but rather on their position in each market segment.

Our investment focus is on companies that meet the following criteria:

  • Turnover from 5 million euros
  • Proven business model and mature products 
  • Operational and financial improvement opportunities
  • Headquartered in Western Europe
