PPF Group's values and business strategy have not changed materially since its foundation in 1991:
We seek companies where we can add value by conducting operational restructuring with tried and tested business models, implementing strict financial and corporate discipline, and engendering leadership and expertise through excellent management.
We focus on investment opportunities requiring a capital contribution of EUR 100 million or more.
We are a flexible and respectable partner and although we prefer taking a majority stake in companies, we are always prepared to cooperate with a partner who maintains similar business philosophies in the management and development of an investment.
We aim to continue to grow and innovate and leverage the extensive background of our knowledge and experience to achieve success. Over the 20 years of its existence, PPF has gained a proven track record in business restructuring in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and Asia, and we will continue to focus on achieving investment opportunities in these key regions.
PPF Group today owns companies in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and across Asia, employing tens of thousands of people. Everywhere we operate, we aim to develop and encourage the values and principles that are the foundation of our business success: innovation, entrepreneurship, creativity, financial discipline, and a global perspective.
This is why our greatest asset is our people. PPF appreciates the loyalty of our employees and judges it success not only by financial goals and operational efficiancy but also by the satisfaction of its people.
Petr Kellner, who built the company, holds more than a 90% interest in PPF Group and still participates in its management to a great degree. As a result, PPF retains a human dimension and the awareness of broader social responsibility despite its size. In the Czech Republic, PPF Group and Petr Kellner are among the largest private donors and sponsors in art and education.
