VMS Value Management sponsors third special situations-fund with Brandl & Talos
Following the successful divestment of the VMS REB II portfolio, VMS has sponsored its third private equity fund focussed on special situations. VMS REB 3 targets portfolio companies in distress or other special situations such as insolvency, turnaround cases, business succession, complex carve-out transactions or other special situations. The target size of the fund is EUR 80m.
A team of Brandl & Talos – led by Roman Rericha and Markus Arzt – advised VMS in connection with the fund structuring, the authorisation process with the Austrian Financial Market Authority and the fund marketing. The Brandl & Talos team further consisted of Kerstin Liebl and Lou Martina Weber (both regulatory).
“We really appreciate the opportunity to support the very experienced VMS-team in the course of the structuring of its third private equity fund. This engagement again shows our unique experience in that regard.” says Roman Rericha
