public fundingAxis cuenta con el FOND-ICOpyme de  € 422 M para apoyar a las pymes en sus planes de expansión, con visión a largo plazo de los negocios, desde las de reciente constitución a las consolidadas de tamaño mediano.

Una actividad inversora en crecimiento

La cartera de inversiones cuenta con 37 compañías (€49 M en capital y € 50 M en préstamos participativos) y 16 participaciones en otras entidades de capital riesgo (€19 M).

Las operaciones más destacadas en el 2012 según Capital & Corporate han sido:

- Oncovision: sector biotecnológico, dedicada al equipamiento médico de visión molecular de aplicación en cirugía, investigación y diagnóstico de cáncer, en una operación LBO junto con BUllnet y CRB Bio II.

- Albali señalización: en el sector logística en fase semilla por 7,7M€.

- Avanza externalización de servicios junto con Baring Private Equity Partners por una posición minoritaria.

- Además de las operaciones reportadas por Cap&corp, la propia AXIS informa sobre su participación en Delaware, empresa de servicios de consultoría en el ámbito de las nuevas tecnologías que factura 27MM€ y Aterga dedicada a aportar medios técnicos para grandes infraestructuras.

"Sectorialmente AXIS tiene un caracter generalista como hemos visto en las operaciones del 2012. Ha habido inversiones en biotecnología, logistica y servicios a empresas.  A pesar de la creciente actividad, el volumen de inversión realizado en el 2012 nos parece bajo provocado por una corta rotación de cartera de participadas. Además, aunque en sus comunicados ofrezcan inversión a empresas en fases semilla, la realidad es que favorecen más a las empresas ya desarrolladas" comenta Diego Gutierrez experto en finanzas corporativas para pymes en ABRA INVEST.

Inversión pública orientada a invertir a través de otros fondos especialidados

Durante el 2012 AXIS ha participado en 4 fondos de venture capital:

- Amerigo SI tecnologies con 3 MM€ para inversiones semilla.

- CRB Bio II con 4MM€ para inversiones semilla en biotecnología.

- Inveready Venture Finance con 3 MM€ para inversiones semilla.

- Seaya ventures con 3 MM€, la única para proyectos en expansión.

"Opinamos que es muy bueno que las entidades públicas se apoyen en equipos gesores de dilatada experiencia y reconocidos en el mercado para la gestión de los fondos públicos. Por una parte, aporta profesionalidad al proceso de inversión y, por otra, evita en parte que influyan criterios no de negocio o políticos que desvirtuan la labor de apoyo a empresas con futuro como ha podido pasar en las cajas o entidades similares" aporta Diego Gutierrez.

Technology Data Analytics
for M&A
Advanced data anlytics is a weapon". Intelfin is an artificial intelligence tool we use for investing and creating value in SMEs through competitive analytics and the enterprise environment.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

The IntelFin system focuses especially on analyzing the variables that define and influence the competitive environment of a sector and the positioning of a company, analyzing their influence on future value creation. Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
Training Methodology
We have developed training programs in an innovative set-up which guarantees our teams the acquisition of technical competences both in the field of corporate finance and in the field of psychology, that is much needed when it comes to negotiation processes.

We have a culture of continuous improvement of our processes, closely related to the use of information systems that allow the enhancement of internal communication between our teams, as well as external communication with our customers. Hence, we extend best practices identified internally in an efficient and rapid manner among our members.
