A Dutch investment group has acquired a stake in German engine-maker Deutz.

Deutz said that one of the reasons cited by Ardan Livvey was that the engine company “occupies an excellent strategic position with regard to the trends of electrification, alternative drive systems, and more efficient machinery.”

It added: “It (Deutz) is thus well placed to benefit from further change within the industry. This view is shared by the management team, and the board of management therefore welcomes any new investor that wishes to support Deutz as it pursues this strategy.”

Ardan Livvey also said that it had identified as yet unused opportunities to create value for investors, the Deutz statement said.

Deutz added that it “is receptive to all constructive suggestions on the company’s future development. The board of management has therefore contacted the investor in order to establish a dialog.”

Outlining its overall business strategy on its website Ardan Livvey says: “Our value investing philosophy associated with our lean and flexible structure, allows us to be able to identify and quickly act on companies that are mispriced by the markets.

“In our private equity investments, we aim to take control or hold significant equity positions to ensure we have the voice and representation necessary to serve as a catalyst and unlock value in the companies we invest in. To better support our portfolio companies, our management team will often take board seats and advisory positions.

“We work in cooperation with the management of our portfolio companies, advising on strategic goals, tracking performance and ensuring the group-wide adoption of best practices.”
