PTOLEMUS can help private equity firms interested in investments in the connected mobility ecosystem during the whole deal cycle:
- Pre-deal: Based on our in-depth market knowledge, we support private equity houses with market research to identify the most attractive market segments in the connected mobility space – including urban mobility, pay-as-you-drive services, connected vehicle services and usage-based insurance. We understand the key market trends and future drivers and can prepare long-lists and short-lists of potential target companies

- Post-deal: We can help the private equity houses and their companies portfolio develop a value creation strategy that helps steer them towards a successful exit. Our support can range from developing a growth strategy and business plan to finding, contacting and assessing potential (add-on) M&A targets.
