Across industries, online business is gaining in relevance as a result of sustained strong growth rates. Since this growth is usually at the expense of the offline business, this channel shift from offline to online will also lead to corresponding shifts in market share. As such, it is advisable for private equity companies and family offices to equip their portfolio companies with suitable digitalisation and e-commerce strategies and/or to complement their portfolio with dynamic online players.
The following is an excerpt of the transcations we have accompanied.
