This year has been a transformational one for Kartesia’s Senior Opportunities (KSO)
strategy across Europe, which now has on-the-ground representation in all of our key markets – Spain, France, the DACH region, the Benelux and the UK – and has closed
transactions in a number of these jurisdictions.
As highlighted in our Edito, the ability to be flexible and agile is at the core of our business model and allows us to add significant value for our portfolio companies, which has been particularly important given the events of the past few months amid the coronavirus pandemic. The examples of Tunstall and International Cookware exemplify our approach and the variety of ways we can support businesses through difficult circumstances.
Kartesia wrote a new page in Vitaldent’s history by replacing its former debt provider and making new resources available that shall boost the growth of the leading dental operator in Spain and Italy. Jaime Prieto, Managing Partner, and Tomás Neuhaus, Associate Director, explain the steps and implications to get to this new scenario.
At Kartesia we try to be more than a typical lender by reviewing new business opportunities with our clients. As a credit platform operating in France, the UK, Spain, Germany, Italy and Austria, we enjoy a deep network of top managers and experts and we ensure our clients make the most of it.
Given the prevailing market conditions, refinancing negotiations are often a clear inflection point in our borrowers’ credit story. From our experience, secondary debt purchase from historic lenders seeking a way to exit is often a fruitful option. The way we see our job as an innovative credit platform is to do our best to provide our borrowers with the right solutions at the right time.
