Sherpa Capital manages private equity funds with a focus on investment in Special Situations and Private Equity.

SHERPA CAPITAL centres its Special Situations funds’ investment strategy on supporting companies with a growth potential and which are facing major challenges related to the economic environment or to an extraordinary situation from a strategic, operational, financial or equity-related point of view.

At Sherpa Capital, we actively collaborate with our portfolio company’s teams to meet these challenges, boosting continuous value creation through acquisitions with a view to sectoral consolidation, production efficiency and sales improvement, redefinition of costing systems, etc. Throughout the years, our team has actually shown an outstanding ability to cooperate with the managers of the portfolio companies with whom we have proactively worked on the acquisition and integration of complementary companies, in the framework of our efforts to consolidate our portfolio companies within their respective sectors.

The wide experience we have accumulated enables us to close transactions quickly (in less than one month), creating customised structures and adapting to the needs of the shareholders and the company.

Investment objective:

  • Companies in special situations which are facing significant strategic, operational or financial challenges, but with sustainable competitive advantages and relevant market positions.
  • Turnover ranging between € 20 M and 300 M, although larger transactions shall not be ruled out in a co-investment scheme .

  • Companies which balance sheets show room for improvement and/or clean-up.

SHERPA CAPITAL invests, through its Private Equity fund, in small and medium-sized companies with a high organic and corporate growth potential. Our philosophy is based on the need to increase the companies’ size in order to enable them to maximise their competitive position and reach the economies of scale required to become leaders in their business sector.

On the basis of our portfolio companies and the methodology we have developed over the past years, we actively collaborate in the research and integration of new business models and companies to serve as springboards for our portfolio companies. Our methodology helps to keep our portfolio companies totally focused on the operating business’ value creation and to eventually achieve all the strategic synergies entailed by an accurate acquisition and an excellent integration.

Systematic success over the past years, combined with expertise on the Spanish business reality, generates a differential value in our portfolio companies and management teams.
