Managing Director Koen Dejonckheere, on the activities of the past quarter: “Despite the ongoing difficult macro-economic context, the value of the portfolio grew. Several of our businesses also successfully approached the capital markets once more, in spite of nervousness in the international financial markets.” He adds: “Based on our revised strategy and long-term focus, we have recently entered into a number of new partnerships - on each of our investment platforms – with promising businesses which we intend to offer our full support and guidance on their ambitious growth path. Over the next few months, we assume a continued interesting investment activity.”
