NPM Capital in 2019
NPM Capital invests in medium-sized companies in the Benelux region. These companies are supported in completing the next growth phase of their development. NPM Capital has the assets required to facilitate flexible, generally long-term, investment horizons. The current portfolio comprises 25 companies with both majority and minority stakes and includes growth capital.
NPM Capital views Corporate Social Responsibility as a source of value creation and encourages the companies in its portfolio to proactively address the associated challenges. Doing business fairly is a key feature of socially responsible entrepreneurship. For NPM Capital and its portfolio companies, principles of sound business practices and compliance with legislation are standard operating principles.
In 2019, the Dutch economy continued to grow while interest rates remained historically low. This environment was one of the reasons why the inflow of money into Private Equity remained high. At the same time, geopolitical events like a no-deal Brexit, trade wars and the unstable situation in the Middle East gave reason for caution.
Based on a market and strategy review, NPM Capital revised and updated its key investment themes and now has four areas of focus: Everything is Digital, Feeding the World, Future of Energy and Healthy Life. It will look primarily for investments that are relevant to these themes and that will offer opportunities for growth. To increase the internal knowledge on the different areas, an Agri Board and a Digital Board have been set up with key experts from the respective industries.
