APS Holding now has a single shareholder

15 December, 2015

The Czech group APS, controlled by company APS Holding SE, a provider of services in loan portfolio investment, management, and recovery, now has a single shareholder. Martin Machoň, CEO and previously a minority (40%) shareholder, purchased the majority interest of the Central European investment group Slavia Capital. The parties have agreed not to make the transaction’s value public. The total value of APS Holding SE exceeds EUR 20 million. For 2014, the company’s revenue was EUR 12.31 million and its EBITDA was EUR 3.15 million. For 2015, the company expects revenue of EUR 16 million and EBITDA over EUR 5 million.

“Our plan is to continue to grow APS over the long term. We see opportunities not only in new markets in Europe and Asia but also in new products, particularly in developing real estate portfolios as well as providing returns on investments into our investment funds. In terms of territorial expansion, we want to continue our current pace of growth, as last year we expanded our activities into Greece and this year we will complete the licensing procedure in Vietnam,” states Martin Machoň, the new sole shareholder.

APS is a leading European company in the acquisition, management, and recovery of loan portfolios, particularly of banks. Through its four investment funds, it offers returns on investments to individual investors. The company was founded in Prague in 2004 and employs 450 people across seven European countries. APS manages assets totalling more than EUR 3 billion. It has a dominant position particularly in South-eastern Europe. In Romania, APS is the second largest Czech company after the ČEZ Group. Within its investment activities, APS has long cooperated with the International Finance Corporation, a member of the World Bank Group. “We are currently expanding into Asia and considering expansion into Western Europe, where we are presently evaluating several offers and what our next steps should be,” adds Martin Machoň.
