Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) now boasts over 30 years of growth and development since its ‘restart’ in the early 1990s, and private equity has been a part of the story since the beginning. As CEE and Europe as a whole have continued to develop, investment themes and strategies have evolved, and the region has responded with new and exciting opportunities.
Invest Europe published its first CEE Success Stories in 2004, highlighting the region’s strategies and opportunities at the time. This publication features 22 of the region’s successful private equity and venture capital investments fully exited between 2015 and 2019, to show the investment and value creation strategies that private equity is employing today in CEE. While by no means an exhaustive list of the region’s successes, these case studies provide insight into how private equity managers are leveraging the fundamental attractiveness of the CEE region into high returns for investors and value creation for citizens.
Wolf Theiss is pleased to be part of this dynamic growth environment and to support Invest Europe.
