Corporate investment

We focus on identifying investment opportunities in European-headquartered technology companies in the lower middle market with strong management teams.

Investment approach

Investcorp has a long-standing track record of successfully investing in the European technology sector. Since 2001 we have raised more than $1 billion in funding for technology investments and built an extensive level of expertise across a number of verticals including:

  • Big data
  • Security
  • FinTech & ePayments
  • Internet & Mobility

We target fast growing European technology companies that have the potential to expand internationally, and feature multiple avenues for growth and significant cash-flow generation. We seek controlling stakes in businesses with $10 million or more in revenues and positive EBITDA that require equity investments of $25 to $50 million. We typically partner with founders, who remain invested alongside us, to unlock the next level of growth for their businesses.

Representative past transactions in Europe include Fleetmatics, Skrill and TDX

Value creation

Investcorp’s post-acquisition model provides value-added management and oversight support using a mixture of financial, operational and strategic expertise. We seek to be a strategic partner to founders and management teams by providing both human and capital resources to drive accelerated growth (through global expansion and add-on acquisitions) and implement operational improvements.

Our in-house investment team is supported by our Operating Executives, who assist us in identifying technology trends, conduct due diligence and work in partnership with management teams to provide leadership advice, refine strategy, identify new opportunities and evaluate add-on investments.
