The amounts invested in each operation range from 10 to 40 million euros, and up to 100 million euros in the presence of co-investors. IDI takes majority positions but can also take minority positions in companies showing strong organic growth and supports their development in France and internationally.
IDI stands out from other players in the French private equity landscape due to a number of distinguishing characteristics:
- Significant flexibility in the management of the investment time frame: free from any requirement to obtain a rapid return on the money invested, IDI adapts its investment and divestment rhythm to the development and value creation plan of the company and can reinvest in companies within its own portfolio during reorganisations of the shareholding structure;
- Aligned interests with management teams: as IDI itself is the result of an entrepreneurial adventure, we understand the challenges faced by managers and find ways to align those requirements with our own, by always enabling the management team to become shareholder and by adapting to the business plan;
- A committed, active shareholder that is involved in the companies in its portfolio: by making almost 800 investments in nearly 50 years of activity, IDI has developed expertise in a range of sectors and is able to contribute to the strategic decisions of the companies in its portfolio (build up, establishment of commercial networks, creation of new business lines, etc.).
