Restructuring: Emerging stronger from a tough situation

When companies are in a restructuring phase, they need to overcome various challenges of an operational and financial nature. This is a situation in which they need an experienced and reliable partner that can provide advice and practical support with implementing the necessary measures.

A clear strategy and a strong team

Provided they have a clearly defined strategy, have planned to take effective measures, and have based the restructuring on a coherent concept, we also invest in companies during this challenging transitional phase. In this context we focus on companies dealing with financial challenges, for example companies with excessive debt at risk of bankruptcy.

In these exceptional circumstances it is particularly important for us to work with a management team or active advisory board that are pursuing a clear strategy for restructuring. It is also important for us to be confident that the parties are in a position to successfully implement the planned changes to find their way out of the crisis. And last but not least, we like to always get the workforce on board so that the entire team supports the necessary measures out of conviction.

The capiton team proved their foresight and entrepreneurial thinking when they invested in our company as part of a balance sheet restructuring process.

Basic philosophy

One of capiton’s key principles is to consistently pursue the same goals as our portfolio companies and their management. For us, it’s not about making fast profits at any price, but about long-term healthy prospects for your company and its workforce.


At capiton we aim for solid growth that fully leverages a company’s potential. This is why we generally set aside additional capital for our portfolio companies to enable them to consistently finance and implement their growth strategies. Excessive levels of debt are also not part of our philosophy.


During the dynamic value appreciation phase, capiton provides active support and expertise, without getting involved in the operational side of your business. You will benefit from our extensive experience of similar cases.


At the end of the restructuring process, your company will be better positioned on the market than before. It will be well equipped for the future, provide a secure workplace for your employees, and will be more valuable than at the start. It will be a company that you, your workforce, and indeed we can be proud of. Your very own company.
