SWS Group Spa and Mediocredito Trentino Alto Adige, the end of an era

A cycle of investment in SWS Group Spa has been successfully completed by Mediocredito Trentino Alto Adige, which also accompanied the Company in strengthening its capital resources and managerial structure.

Mediocredito Trentino Alto Adige is active not only in medium and long-term credit, but also as an investment bank in the acquisition of minority stakes in the venture capital of the most dynamic companies in the area.

At the end of January, Mediocredito, in full agreement with the Company, concluded the cycle of investments and assistance in strengthening the capital resources of SWS Group spa based in Mattarello (Trento), holding company of the two operating companies, SWS Engineering spa and Enginsoft spa.

In 2011, the investment saw the bank enter with a minority stake, while it now lasted beyond the standards normally guaranteed by specialized private equity operators.

It is precisely this form of “patient” capital that has facilitated and supported the growth of the group and allowed the founders Paolo Mazzalai (Past President of Confindustria Trento) and Stefano Odorizzi to focus on entrepreneurial choices oriented towards strong development on international markets.

SWS Engineering spa, a civil engineering company, operates today in the design of large infrastructures such as subways, railways, roads, dams and hydroelectric plants for over 70% on foreign markets, with offices in four continents.

It has developed digital technologies that allow “paper free” design and digitalization of the entire infrastructure life cycle (digital twin).

Enginsoft spa operates in the industrial engineering sector. It is one of the leading international technology transfer companies in the field of Simulation Based Engineering Science (SBES). With offices in Italy and abroad, it works across a broad range of industries that includes automotive, energy, oil and gas, aerospace, metals, processing and manufacturing, consumer goods and appliances, healthcare and biomechanics, helping customers to best leverage existing legacy and emerging simulation technologies.

The Mattarello Headquarters alone employs over 150 graduated technicians including engineers, physicists and computer scientists.

“The presence of Mediocredito was certainly important from a financial point of view,” says Paolo Mazzalai “Not only that. The representatives of the Bank on the Board of Directors have always provided interesting stimuli on important issues, on how to grow the organizational structure and orient the group to be more present on the international arena.”

“This is exactly how we understand private equity: providing risk capital to strengthen the capital structures of the most dynamic and high-tech companies in the area, with wide-ranging time objectives for disinvestment,” concludes Diego Pelizzari, General Manager of Mediocredito. “In fact, our exit from the capital occurs only when the growth objectives, not only economic but also organizational and management, have been fully achieved, thanks also to our presence in corporate governance”.
