As an investor, aim.group specialises in the acquisition of successful family businesses.
We strive for a positive impact by guaranteeing continuity and building on what the original owners have built. By striving for progress day in and day out, in all its aspects. By believing in exceptional managers and employees and offering them the opportunity to contribute to a unique story.
Our team of experts ensures a transparent and discreet acquisition.
Management Buy-In (MBI)
aim.group invests together with an external manager, who takes over the operational management of the company after the acquisition and participates as a shareholder.
We have built up a successful track record in MBI transactions, in which we always acquired companies for 100%. By doing so, we offer a solution for ambitious managers who wish to do business and for selling shareholders who wish to sell due to a lack of internal or family succession.
The focus is always on long-term value creation, as we invest with our own patient capital. In doing so, we build companies on a stand-alone basis and at their own pace, while respecting the corporate identity.

Owner Buy-Out (OBO)
In an Owner Buy-Out aim.group een meerderheid van de aandelen, waarbij de verkopende aandeelhouder opnieuw in het kapitaal stapt. Door het bundelen van de krachten kunnen versnelde groeiplannen waargemaakt worden, terwijl de zittende aandeelhouder een stuk vermogen veiligstelt door een gedeeltelijke verkoop.
A OBO can alternatively occur in a conflict situation. For example, when one of the shareholders wishes to buy out the other(s). In such a transaction aim.group optreden als partner van de kopende aandeelhouder en zo een oplossing bieden voor beide kanten.
Together, we have a balanced mix of operational and financial-strategic skills. Together, we determine the appropriate strategic direction and take the right steps in our growth path. Driven by our combined expertise.
