Deutsche Beteiligungs is a German-based listed private equity company focused on mid-sized companies in Germany and neighbouring German-speaking countries.
Deutsche Beteiligungs (DBAG) is proceeding to deploy the capital commitments of DBAG Fund VII (€1,010m including top-up fund), with 71% of the main fund and 59% of the top-up fund already allocated. The fund should complete its investment phase soon and subsequently DBAG should launch its successor. This would considerably drive fees, as they are based on committed capital. Meanwhile, DBAG’s portfolio is influenced by weaker economic and trading conditions in some sectors (eg automotive). In this context, it is encouraging that DBAG continues diversifying its portfolio into other sectors, including TMT, which contributed positively to its NAV in 9M19.
