What makes us different?

ABOUT US
PAAN CAPITAL is an independent investment fund where we, together with our business partners, selectively invest in business ventures. We combine many years of investment experience, gained in leading international companies, with managerial experience, built through managing branches of international corporations and a capital group listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. We also have extensive transaction (M&A) and investment experience on the side of sector investors and private equity funds, both sell- and buyside, and we are ready to support our partners in M&A transactions and financing arrangement. As managers, we have led various areas of company activities, both at strategic and operational level.
Paan Private Equity Fund
INVESTMENTS
We invest mainly in projects that have already confirmed their business model. We act as a financial investor, although in the case of sectors we are familiar with from the management side, we are also involved in operational management. Preferably, we support investments in which current shareholders/initiators of the venture also plan to commit further capital. We are also familiar with restructuring processes. The expected investment period is 3-5 years. After that period has ended, we exit the project according to the rules set out in investment agreement. The exit route depends on the profile of the project and the market situation.
TRANSACTIONS ADVISORY

We support our business partners in strategic activities such as selling or buying a business and arranging of financing. Our offer is distinguished by its practicality, resulting from a combination of transactional and managerial experience.

Mergers & Acquisitions
Thanks to the combination of our expertise in transactions with our managerial experience on the side of sector investors and private equity funds, we take a broader and more pragmatic view of mergers and acquisitions. Skillful planning and handling of a transaction can dramatically increase the scale of an investor’s (buyer’s) operations; for the seller it is often the culmination of a lifetime’s work and an opportunity to pursue other plans. Mergers and acquisitions are extremely complex processes, where alongside purely factual considerations, emotions often play a significant part. We provide comprehensive transactional support: – transactions with private equity funds – transactions with strategic investors – support in buy-side transactions – LBO / MBO
Financing

We are experienced in arranging financing in virtually every form available on the market. We do not try to persuade our clients to raise capital within a narrow area of our competence, but help them select the type of financing which is the most suitable in view of the development prospects for their company and the interests of its owners.

– stock market (PRE-IPO, IPO, SPO)

– debt (credit facilities, loans, bonds)

– private equity / venture capital / mezzanine funds, strategic investors, private financial investors
