About us

Management Capital Holding AG was founded in November 2007 by the two partners, Christof Wahl and Michael Hengstmann, in Munich.

We provide capital for a management buy-out or management buy-in as well as for participation models with group companies (industrial partnerships).

In addition, we also support young companies in growth financing.

In contrast to classic private equity funds, Management Capital Holding AG does not have a classic fund structure, but puts together a transaction-specific group of investors (usually so-called family offices) for each investment in addition to its own equity capital.

Our team is characterised by the fact that we also have long and extensive experience in entrepreneurial and operative management functions as interim or permanent board members and managing directors.

Beyond the mere provision of capital, Management Capital Holding sees itself as a partner for management teams and companies, actively contributing to the sustainable increase in value of the portfolio companies and supporting the implementation of industrial concepts.

We focus our investments on companies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland that generate sales of EUR 25 million to EUR 500 million.

Management Capital Holding sees fundamental changes in industry structures and market rules as an opportunity for capital-rich companies to strengthen their competitive position.

We focus on industries where we can contribute our international network and our operational entrepreneurial experience (e.g. media and telecommunications, retail and consumer goods, business services and manufacturing industries such as mechanical engineering and the automotive industry).

Management Capital Holding’s strategic partner is Executive Interim Partners GmbH, a leading company for interim management in special situations.

Current investments of Management Capital Holding, which are combined in the media holding of EPP Professional Publishing Group, include DETAIL Business Information GmbH, the Swiss software and cyber defence company Planck Security or the Swiss start-up biotechnology and pharmaceutical company for synbiotic food supplements, mybacs.
