 Livonia is a new independent pan-Baltic private equity fund manager
established by the former investment team of LHV Capital
 The minimum fund size is EUR 50m, with an EUR 85m target
 The team intends to build a balanced portfolio of 8 to 12 companies, with
investment size in the range of EUR 3-15m, following the “buy-and-build”
strategy successfully deployed by LHV Capital across the Baltic States
10
Future: Our Goals
 Our goal is to create a healthy and sustainable private equity and venture
capital market across the Baltics with:
 Qualified fund managers that can raise private capital without public
cornerstone investors
 Strong flow of startups and SMEs that are able to attract financial
investors and deliver positive returns
 There may always be the need for public support of emerging local and
regional fund managers that support emerging local enteprises, before they
‘graduate’ to non-public stage

Future development: EIF view
Time
• Creation of well functioning venture capital ecosystem takes time (perhaps decades)
Support
• Government support through careful use of
Structural Funds, especially for seed and early
stage, implemented according to EC regulation
Continuity
Dialogue
• Continuity from the bottom up, from seed and startup
funds through to BIF, creates a foundation and
pipeline for a mature, independent industry
• Active dialogue with market participants (VCs,
entrepreneurs, other LPs) to understand the market
needs and raise awareness of private capital markets

Future Developments:

Equity in the Baltics
