Investment thesis

Our investment thesis is built on several attractive attributes:

  • Excellent positioning in future-oriented areas and major projects already launched
  • High barriers of entry due to necessary certifications (e.g. in the aviation sector)
  • Historically grown customer relationships and diversified, long-term oriented blue-chip customer structure in both the public sector and industrial sectors
  • Rising spending in all end markets driven by technological megatrends as a basis for organic growth
  • The ongoing consolidation trends in Europe on both the demand and the supply side


  • Strategic review finalised in 2021 with definition of 6 core pillars for future growth
  • Focusing of the business through sale of Radar Services and Quantum Systems in 2022
  • Investment in digitalisation / cyber security and internal controlling / reporting systems
