DBAG Fund VI invested in eleven mid-market companies from October 2013 to January 2017. The investments were structured as management buyouts. All companies are headquartered in Germany. Four of the portfolio companies manufacture industrial components for very different customer sectors and two investee businesses develop and produce machines and plants. The portfolio also includes an industrial services provider, an automotive supplier and three companies operating in other sectors.

Approximately ten percent of the originally committed capital is available for investment in the exising portfolio, for example, for add-on acquisitions. With DBAG Fund VI, Deutsche Beteiligungs AG selectively expanded its sector focus: four of the eleven portfolio companies do not have an industrial background.
