Investment Thesis

In the coming years, 2Connect is set to benefit from its leading position in attractive, double digit-growing end markets, supported by global trends like increasing data transmission and miniaturization. The Company benefits from decade-long relationships with globally leading OEMs, to whom it is able to offer both a high degree of customer intimacy and market-leading products as a result of local sales and R&D hubs, which are supported by cost-effective series production in 2Connect’s Romanian facilities. As one of the largest players in the fragmented western European market, 2Connect is a logical consolidation platform, which should offer opportunities for accelerated growth.

“We look forward to continue our track record of double-digit growth with Rivean, who have shown an in-depth understanding of our industry and business model, where we can leverage their experience with international expansion strategies, both organic and M&A-driven.“
