Baar-Zug, 14 June 2010
Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, closed a direct investment in Kaffee Partner on behalf of its clients together with its investment partner Capvis Equity Partners. Kaffee Partner, a leading distributor of coffee and water dispenser in the German SME market, has shown strong historic growth and expects to accelerate its expansion in the German coffee and water dispenser market in the future.
Kaffee Partner operates in an attractive niche market which offers long term growth potential due to the increasing consumption of coffee specialties. The company offers a wide range of different products which come with long term service contracts to small and medium sized companies. Kaffee Partner is expected to further strengthen its leading market position in Germany over the coming years based on these recurring revenue streams in combination with its successful sales model. In addition, the broad networks offered by both Capvis and Partners Group will aid in ensuring the company is ideally positioned to profit from the trend towards increasing coffee consumption.
