Luxembourg Future Fund 2 announces equity investment in M80 Capital II CommV fund

    Date: 07 June 2024
  • The Luxembourg Future Fund 2 will invest in the M80 Capital II CommV fund focused on the digital transformation of small and medium businesses.
  • M80 Capital II CommV seeks to create value for companies through advanced digital optimisation techniques such as IT management, robotics, the internet of things and artificial intelligence.
  • The aim is to strengthen Luxembourg’s private equity ecosystem while supporting sustainable business growth.

Luxembourg, 7 June 2024 — An €8 million investment in the M80 Capital II CommV fund through the Luxembourg Future Fund 2 (LFF 2) was unveiled today. The announcement came from Minister of Finance Gilles Roth and Minister of the Economy, SMEs, Energy and Tourism Lex Delles, who oversee the Société Nationale de Crédit et d’Investissement (SNCI), the SNCI, and Chief Executive of the European Investment Fund (EIF) Marjut Falkstedt. The M80 Capital II CommV fund specialises in digitalisation, transformation, and environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria, which are all essential for traditional small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operating in an increasingly complex environment. The initiative aims to strengthen Luxembourg’s private equity ecosystem and to promote the core principles of a sustainable economy in Luxembourg.

M80 Capital II CommV sets itself apart for its flexible approach to transaction structuring and its focus on investing in digital transformation. Its strategy meets the flexible financing needs of companies in Luxembourg. It focuses on value creation through advanced digital optimisation techniques, ranging from IT management systems for businesses and their customers, to robotics, the internet of things and artificial intelligence.

At the press conference, Luxembourg’s Minister of Finance Gilles Roth said: “M80 Capital II is a fund designed to provide expertise in digitalisation and transformation, a vitally important area these days in light of the twin green and digital transition. It focuses on traditional SMEs, which are operating in an increasingly complex environment. This investment highlights our commitment to supporting the economy, and our desire to diversify it by encouraging innovation. I am particularly pleased about the positive effects that this investment will have on Luxembourg’s ecosystem through the involvement of local banks, but also through opportunities for collaboration with key players such as the University of Luxembourg and Luxinnovation.”

Minister of the Economy, SMEs, Energy and Tourism Lex Delles added: “The investment in the M80 II fund is an important step in supporting the development of small and medium enterprises, which are the undeniable engine of economic growth in Luxembourg. This fund looks at the investment plans of SMEs in need of financing and offers an external perspective on the internal restructuring options available to them, particularly when it comes to the digital and sustainable transition. We are therefore providing the best possible support to our SMEs. The addition of a private equity fund is an exciting opportunity to bring new skills to the Luxembourg ecosystem.”

EIF Chief Executive Marjut Falkstedt said: “I am thrilled to see the LFF 2 programme’s continued work making investments and contributing to the sustainable development of Luxembourg’s economy. This investment in the new M80 Partners fund will boost the digitalisation efforts, growth and expansion of European companies, in line with the broader policy goals of the European Union, the European Investment Bank and the Luxembourg government.”

Chief Executive Officer of M80 Peter Maenhout said: “Luxembourg is a dynamic market for ambitious SMEs ready to innovate and grow. With the support of the Luxembourg Future Fund II, M80 can step up its efforts to identify and collaborate with these companies to help them achieve their full potential. Our goal is always to help businesses generate value for their customers, employees, owners and investors.”
