„Eine Investition in Mutares lohnt sich“

Mutares ist ein europaweit führender Private-Equity-Investor, der sich auf Sondersituationen wie Abspaltungen von großen Konzernen oder Turnaround- und Nachfolgesituationen spezialisiert hat. Ziel ist es, mit den Investments einen Return auf das eingesetzte Kapital von 7 bis 10 zu erzielen. Mit der jüngsten Mittelfristprognose hat der Münchner Finanzinvestor auf Basis von 5 Mrd. Euro Konzernumsatz eine Nettorendite für die börsennotierte Holding von 1,8 bis 2,2 % in Aussicht gestellt. In der Mitte der Zielspanne wird somit ein Nettogewinn von circa 100 Mio. Euro anvisiert.
