CIM Capital Restruct Fund’s mission is to support companies that run into difficulties due to external factors such as the consequences of macro-economic crises, too much debt, insufficiently strong management or lack of succession. Furthermore, the fund will also focus on carve-outs of activities that do not get the right support or growth opportunities within a group.
CIM Capital Restruct Fund will focus on companies that, due to various circumstances, have an urgent need for strengthening their equity capital.

In May 2021, CCR Fund acquired Neckermann Belgium, a Belgian travel retail chain with 40 shops, as part of the judicial restructuring procedure of Wamos Benelux ─ the company that operated the Neckermann business. A new company was created (Neckermann Belgium) which acquired certain assets from this process. In early June 2021, Neckermann Belgium was able to reopen most of its sales outlets with a renewed product range. Within 3 months, a new ERP &, CRM and accounting systems were also installed and a brand new online booking system went live in September 2021.
CIM Capital invested in Veritas, a well-known Belgian retail chain with 122 shops, selling legwear, underwear, swimwear, loungewear and haberdashery in late 2019. Since the acquisition, the company has successfully repositioned itself in the market and emerged from the COVID period with increased profitability, regained sales growth and a solid balance sheet.
