Kartesia, the European specialist provider of capital solutions for small and mid-sized companies, is pleased to announce that it has increased its mezzanine investment in the Rafaut group in order to finance the acquisition of AEds.
With the festive season and the year-end just a few weeks away, this is a good time to look back over some of the highlights of 2018. For Kartesia, it was a year that brought industry recognition of our decisive approach with a lower mid-market focus, which has driven the alpha delivered to our investors over four fund generations. In fact, KCO III won not one but two Best Direct Lending Fund awards in 2018, beating 30 peers managed by some of Europe’s top managers.
On 11 October, Kartesia held its second annual Procedures Day. Sticking with the model that worked so well at last year’s inaugural event, all of Kartesia’s teams congregated at the Penta Hotel in Brussels for an important working day.
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.
