A new player on the private equity market has PLN1.2 billion to spend in consumer products sector. "We don't want to take over companies, we want to support their development," said Ryszard Wojtkowski, Managing Partner of the Fund.

A substantial sumof money for middle-market companies – this is the shortest description of Resource Partners, the youngest player on Polish private equity market. But not every company willbecome a target, because the managing partners are convinced that it's time to specialize.

"We are interested in the consumer products sector, in food producers, healthcare providers and retail networks. Companies that are focused on the mass market rather than on niche markets, innon-regulated industries. We want to take advantage of fragmented markets. In our opinion the consumer products sector has the highest potential. I could more easily imagine that a Polish company couldconquer the world with food products than with a new mobile phone," said Ryszard Wojtkowski, Managing Partner of Resource Partners.

The Fund invests in the range of EUR5 million-45 million in companies with an EBITDA of at least EUR2.5 million.
