1. For company owners seeking a partner to collaborate in the expansion of the business:
Since 1990, Torreal has been providing support to owners of companies in growth and business expansion processes, making it one of the most experienced players in this market. During this time, it has participated in over 50 business operations, invariably in collaboration with owners and management teams and in a large variety of sectors and has adapted very flexibly to the many vicissitudes encountered in the transactions carried out.
All of these years of management experience have given Torreal a general, multisectorial vision, which complements the specialist industrial focus of our partners; this enormously enriches the growth of the target company.
Torreal’s background, linked with the past of its chairman Juan Abelló as owner and manager of the family-run pharmaceutical business during the 1980’s, gives us a distinguishing characteristic that enables us to be perceived as a financial partner, but with an unquestionably industrial angle.
Torreal’s exceptional make-up, owned by a sole family group, provides us with special flexibility and coherence in all our undertakings. The only benchmark for our decisions is the capacity to generate future value for the investments made. Therefore, we are not influenced by issues of expiration of fund deadlines, management team salary models, or the need to display a track record with a view to new fund-raising processes
Likewise, the existence of a sole owner enables us to be agile in decision-making and gives us absolute flexibility when considering undertaking any investment or divestment.
2. For other investment firms seeking a partner with which to undertake an investment
Since its foundation, Torreal has participated on many occasions in the acquisition of a stake in businesses together with other leading financial partners, bringing to the table, among other things, its knowledge of the Spanish financial community, where it has a solid reputation, and its strategic and multisectorial vision of the Spanish business fabric.
Torreal’s background, rooted more in industry and the business world than in purely financial spheres, gives us a general and not exclusively financial vision of business issues, with the search for a consensus always prevailing over conflict.
For foreign investors with an interest in Spain but lacking local presence, Torreal can be an excellent local partner; as it knows the opportunities and pitfalls of the Spanish market and the different market players. During the first project development years and until the formation of the company's own executive team, Torreal can be that collaborating partner that defines and supports the strategy to be followed. Solid evidence of this are some our past investments.
The multidisciplinary structure of the Torreal team, with experts in the financial, legal, tax, mercantile and administrative areas, facilitates and speeds up the implementation of transactions and represents an additional advantage in complex processes, where agility and flexibility of response are key.
Working with Torreal as a partner provides access to its knowledge of the local market and the players in it and can represent a boost to the value creation process of co-investments.
3. For investment market advisors and intermediaries:
The more than 50 business operations carried out by Torreal since 1990 are a guarantee for advisors and intermediaries of its operation implementation capacity.
During all this time we have worked with a large variety of advisors, which has enabled us to learn of their concerns and priorities when undertaking an investment/ divestment process. We are able to address all these concerns and provide an orderly and satisfactory process for all the parties involved.
We consider ourselves to be one of the most agile and flexible players in the Spanish investor arena in terms of decision-making.
In this sense also, we should mention Torreal’s solvency – asset-wise and financially – as a key element to ensure operation deadlines are met with no unexpected delays.
The stability and permanence of Torreal’s management team is an additional factor that has helped to intensify relations with the other market players and to create a bond of trust, thus avoiding continuous changes of intermediaries and the transmission, over time, of varying or contradictory messages.
Finally, it should be mentioned that working with Torreal enables advisors to access a major group in the Spanish corporate arena, with a varied stock portfolio, in dynamic and changing sectors where the existence of corporate operations is frequent.
