Main investment (target market) highlights:
- Investment companies / funds that operate in the real economy of Ukraine are concentrated on large corporate clients, where investment transactions start from USD 10 million.

- Investments funds of USD 5 million (1st round) will be split between 10 SME Ukrainian companies.
- Investment company / Fund will control 50%+ equity in each SME company + cash-flow control.
- Management of the investment company / fund will be included in the Supervisory Board of each SME company.
- EBITDA margin of the investment company / fund is expected to attain a level of 55% min in 2-3 years.
