Princess invested a total of EUR 7.0 million during the month of August, of which EUR 4.8 million was invested in Blue River PetCare (Blue River), a leading US-based operator of veterinary hospitals for companion animals. Founded in 2009 and headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, Blue River operates over 90 general practice hospitals in 23 states, employing over 300 veterinarians and specialists. Blue River operates in the general practice veterinary services space, a segment that has proven to be stable through economic cycles, as vet expenditures are perceived as non-discretionary in nature. The sector is highly fragmented and total consolidation represents just 13% of veterinary hospitals in the market. Going forward, Partners Group will work closely with Blue River to expand its business development team and source for small-scale acquisitions. The company will also invest in local and digital marketing efforts, as well as online scheduling to drive same-site volume through new and repeat customer growth. Additionally, the company will apply market-based pricing at the clinic level and pursue other top line and bottom line value creation opportunities for the clinics.
EUR 2.0 million was invested in Schleich GmbH (Schleich). Founded in 1935 and headquartered in Schwäbisch Gmünd, Germany, Schleich is one of Germany's largest toy manufacturers and specializes in figurines and playsets, which are sold in more than 50 countries through over 40'000 offline points of sale and online. Schleich is considered an attractive investment given its market-leading position for figurines in the DACH region, along with a strong brand name known for high quality, durability and detailing. The company has demonstrated a robust revenue CAGR of 15.9% from 2014-2018, driven by expansion into playsets in Germany and growth in international markets, and has visible growth opportunities across geographic lines, sales channels and product categories. Following the acquisition, Partners Group will work closely with Schleich's management team on driving international expansion across key markets such as the UK, France, and the US, by increasing brand awareness, pushing e-commerce and defining clear channel strategies.
Princess received distributions of EUR 4.1 million during the month, of which EUR 1.8 million stemmed from the ongoing sale of shares in Ceridian HCM, following the company's listing on the New York Stock Exchange in April 2018.
