Invision launches its fourth European growth capital fund
1st closing at CHF 100 million (€ 63 million)


Zug, 10 October 2006 -- Invision, the Zug based independent private equity firm, announces the 1st closing of its latest private equity fund, Invision IV, at CHF 100 million (€ 63 million). The investors in this closing have been predominantly investors which have backed Invision’s prior funds. They include family offices, pension funds, fund of funds and institutions from both Europe and the USA. Bernd Pfister, CEO of Invision, confirms: “We are proud that our prior investors are continuing to support us in such a strong fashion. We look forward to invest this new fund in successful growth companies in Europe.”

Invision will typically invest € 5-15 million in high growth companies with established business models and revenues between € 5-80 million. It focuses its investments in growth capital in Europe in the sectors IT, telecommunications, medical technology and innovative services. Invision is managed by a team of 6 investment partners which have both operational and financial backgrounds. It was recently joined by Gerd Weisschädel, a former management board member of Deutsche Telekom and successful entrepreneur.

Invision has historically invested € 204 million in 62 companies of which 40 have been sold as of today. Invision has generated a total return on all of its investments of 2.8 times the invested capital. It intends to build on this successful track record. Bernd Pfister sees present conditions as favourable to reach this goal: “We are one of the few investors that can support high growth companies with both expansion capital and management expertise. With our wide industry network we are an attractive partner to seasoned management teams in developing their companies further.”

Invision IV is advised by placement agent AXON Partners, Zug/London and legal counsel SJ Berwin, Munich.
