Our investment strategy
Several reasons for acquiring a company
Incapital devotes significant resources to conducting a pro-active ‘top-down’ analysis of the market or industries that it identifies as having long-term growth potential or other economic fundamentals.
There are several reasons for acquiring a company, buying knowledge and know-how, expanding products or services, strengthening market position. Based on our acquisition strategy and extensive network, we have clear commercial agreements in place, including an extensive analysis of companies. The company valuation is based on the price/earnings ratio, and the transaction structure is based on the transfer of shares.
If an agreement has been reached on the purchase price, Incapital will attract the necessary capital. In doing so, we make a distinction between different the forms of equity and loan capital.
The combination of entrepreneurship, financial resources and added value will result in strong and synergetic teamwork.

Incapital develops a strategic growth plan
Incapital actively works together with the management of the portfolio company to develop a strategic growth plan for the business. This strategic growth plan – laying down the shared vision with regard to the execution of the buy-and-build strategy and organic growth – provides INCapital and the management team of the portfolio company with a clear framework for future cooperation. The combination of entrepreneurship, financial resources and added value will result in strong and synergetic teamwork.
Once an initial investment in a company is made, Incapital will actively support the management with the execution of a pre-agreed growth strategy. This growth strategy often consists of a combination of organic and external growth. In the pursuit of a targeted ‘buy-and-build’ strategy, ‘add-on’ acquisitions are subsequently integrated into the company to expand the investment cluster to a larger size and stronger market position. Incapital can play a key role in helping companies achieve accelerated growth through consolidation by providing expansion capital, know-how and pro-active and hands-on strategic and operational support.
