Freiburg, April 15, 2021. The Freiburg-based consulting firm En.Value Management Spezialisten GmbH & Co KG (EN.VALUE), together with FinComp GmbH, Switzerland, has signed a framework agreement with Afinum Management GmbH, one of the leading medium-sized investment companies in the DACH region. Within the context of the agreement, EN.VALUE and FinComp will continue to support Afinum’s transactions with the necessary financial expertise and assist in establishing professional financial structures in the portfolio companies. Most recently, Afinum had worked with EN.VALUE on investments focusing on the medium-sized companies Ledlenser and Listan (“be quiet”).
Afinum, with offices in Munich, Zurich and Hong Kong, is one of the leading investment companies focusing on small- and medium-sized companies in the DACH region with approximately EUR 1.1 billion in assets currently under management. Since its inception in the year 2000, Afinum has completed around 80 transactions. The current Afinum portfolio includes 17 successful SMEs.
“In every M&A transaction, the finance department is faced with special challenges. This applies both to the due diligence phase and to the post-transaction phase. In many companies, structures and processes in the finance department need to be professionalized in order to be able to realize the planned growth,” explains Dr. Jochen Klemmer, Senior Partner at Afinum. “EN.VALUE’s consulting expertise and experience have convinced us in every respect during our joint projects.”
The services EN.VALUE renders for the investment company range from supporting the portfolio companies in preparing annual financial statements and intra-year reporting, implementing or optimizing efficient processes and IT systems in the financial area, to interim management and preparations for a potential exit. With regard to consolidation and management reporting, EN.VALUE relies on the professional financial performance management software LucaNet in many projects. As a LucaNet Premium Partner, EN.VALUE is able to offer software, consulting and project implementation from a single source.
“With EN.VALUE, we have access to both CFO expertise and the right tools for sound and meaningful reporting – and it is precisely this financial transparency that we need with our portfolio companies,” said Anton Bergmann, Co-CFO of Afinum.
“We are very pleased with the trust Afinum has placed in us, which is underlined by the framework agreement that has now been concluded, and naturally we are looking forward to further exciting projects in the future”, as Ulrich Kenk, CEO of EN.VALUE, stated.
