Mutares is an investment company that acquires medium-sized companies in transitional situations. Through a sustainable realignment and restructuring, potentials are uncovered and profitability is strengthened.
As an active investor, which on the one hand provides operational support with an in-house consulting team, and on the other hand pursues a buy-and-build approach for new investments with strategic acquisitions by its own investment team, Mutares can achieve significant and sustainable increases in value of the portfolio companies. Thus, the acquired investments can be led back to a stable growth path.
