Equinox Industries is an industrial holding company as opposed to a private equity fund. This gives us more flexibility and creativity in the structuring of our investments, allows us to think long term without being under time pressure to possibly sale our portfolio companies, enables us to support our businesses during economic downturns and lastly allows us to fully apply our skills as entrepreneurs and as businessmen.
We actively craft the strategy. We work out the business plan together with management. We are very proactive in the achievement of the business plan trough our personal involvement with employees, financial or trade creditors as well as clients and other partners of the company. We enable the company not only with our financial firepower but also with our personal involvement and our business relationships and network.
We invest our own capital in the form of equity (Equinox Industries manages €25 million of equity capital) and also arrange equity financing on an ad-hoc basis through the €150 millions we currently advise. We also have built over the years privileged relationships with financials institutions which allows us to leverage our equity through various forms of debt financings depending on the company’s needs.
