ISOG has been successfully reorganised with two new shareholders. Both investors are from Bavaria with their registered office in Munich: Endurance Capital AG, the new majority shareholder, and Bayerische Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH (BayBG). ISOG Managing Director Martin Sackmann also remains a shareholder.
Endurance Capital founded in 2004 is a midsize holding company backed by renowned German entrepreneurs in the small to midsize enterprise segment. The private corporation makes equity investments in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. As a rule, Endurance acquires a majority interest in SMEs and considers itself an active shareholder at eye level with management. Its portfolio includes automobile industry suppliers, for example the Schweizer Group based in Stuttgart, a manufacturer of die-cast aluminium components, as well as area rehabilitation companies and for instance IBS, a manufacturer of mobile flood water protection systems in Thierhaupten. Endurance holds the majority of ISOG’s shares going forward. www.endurance-capital.de

BayBG has realised more than 2,500 investments in over 40 years, always as a minority shareholder. New participations are added every year.
