Polish Enterprise Fund VIII, a private equity fund managed by Enterprise Investors, will acquire a 40% stake in BISAR, a fast-growing process outsourcing company operating in Poland and expanding to other Central European countries.
- The fund will invest up to EUR 27 million in the company’s further growth and foreign expansion;
- The transaction is conditional upon obtaining antimonopoly approval.
BISAR specializes in process outsourcing services. It was founded in 2015 and very quickly expanded by taking on large corporate accounts. Over time, the company built an impressive portfolio of reputable clients from various industries including retail, logistics and food processing. BISAR’s dynamic growth was spurred by macroeconomic trends – very low unemployment rates, a shortage of workers in almost all sectors of the economy and an aging population. As these trends are pan-European, BISAR has already started geographic expansion: the company entered Romania earlier this year and plans to move into new geographies in the CEE region.
BISAR is committed to ensuring its employees receive professional training, which greatly increases the quality of services provided by the company. Its operational excellence, ability to quickly adjust to customer needs and high standards are greatly valued by the company’s business partners. BISAR will reach EUR 70 million in revenues in 2022 and plans to grow dynamically in the future on the back of prevailing macroeconomic trends.
“BISAR provides essential services that respond to the increasing workforce shortages caused by demographic changes. Unemployment levels are low and are likely to stay that way even during the economic downturn. I am convinced that together with the founders we will be able to mitigate the growing imbalance on the labor market in Poland and the region,” said Sebastian Król, a partner at Enterprise Investors who is responsible for this transaction.
Commenting on the deal, BISAR’s management board member Robert Abramek said “We strongly believe that together with our partners at Enterprise Investors we can take BISAR to the next level. This new partnership will accelerate implementation of technological solutions that we have already planned. Given the company’s strategic positioning and outstanding prospects, we plan to expand not only our existing accounts but also new ones outside of Poland.”
