CAPZA, a leading private investment firm specialising in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), has held the final closing of its CAPZA 5 Flex Equity Fund, reaching its revised hard cap at EUR700 million, doubling the final size of the previous Fund (EUR350 million).

This success confirms investors’ interest in a flexible and agile investment strategy in resilient sectors. It reflects the renewed confidence of its historical investors (insurers, Funds of Funds, public institutions, pension funds, family offices) as well as the interest of new French and international investors.

This fifth vintage is leveraging CAPZA Flex Equity ‘s proven approach since 2004 which offers – as lead investor – flexible financing solutions combining majority or minority capital, convertible bonds and mezzanine. The Fund aims to support SMEs in their growth and buy-out projects in the lower mid-cap segment in France, Spain, Germany and Italy.

CAPZA Flex Equity’s teams have demonstrated an ability to efficiently deploy capital and achieve a constant pace of divestment over the previous vintages. Close to entrepreneurs, they offer tailor-made equity solutions adapted to the company’s project.
