In it’s investments Camar wishes to have an active ownership role and ability to influence the management of the company.
Direct investments have been our core business since the establishment of Camar in 1994. Camar invests in companies where we as an investor and owner can play an active role and contribute to the company’s development in close cooperation with management and other owners.
Camar will typically gain entry into a company via:
A need for growth capital to finance investments into in order to pursue organic or strategic opportunities
An owner’s desire to enter into a partnership with an active shareholder to further develop the business
Through another natural need for a change in ownership, e.g. generational change
Camar will, in addition to capital, contribute with active ownership focusing on for example furthering corporate strategy, developing business plans, board work, as well as a close-knit cooperation with management on all larger financial and operational challenges and opportunities that arise.
Camar is an opportunistic investor. We deploy our capital across a range of industries and are flexible with regards to which part of the capital structure we invest in. Through our history we have developed a preference for partnerships, where several owners can play to each other’s strengths and competencies to achieve the best result. Camar’s competence is primarily financial, and therefore, entering into partnerships where other parties represent operational, company-specific, or industry expertise is preferred.
