TYPICAL INvestment scenario

Franklin is a reliable partner for companies with scope for operational improvements

Companies in special situations

Companies with significant potential for operational improvement

Carve-out from larger companies or corporates

Management buy-outs/buy-ins

In many cases, the business unit to be divested is not a standalone company.

The starting point may be a single production site, which requires sales, R&D, and management structures before full independence can be achieved.

This is what we do
