Polaris Capital Group Co., Ltd. ("Polaris"), is a leading Japanese buyout firm focused on investments in Japanese mid-cap companies. Our typically approach is to take controlling positions which reduce risks and allows further value creation. Enterprise value of investments is typically in the range of USD100m to USD500m.
Investment targets are corporate carve-outs from large-cap companies and companies considering private equity investments in their succession strategy. This approach allows Polaris to work towards its mission of contributing to Japanese society through assisting Japanese companies to advance into the global market with their unique technologies and brands.
Polaris believes that companies with high environmental, social and governance standards ("ESG") are typically better run, have fewer business risks and ultimately deliver better value. We adopt an integrated approach to ESG, customised for each investment with the objective of mitigating risk and enhancing exit premiums.
