Bus/Financial
German term or phrase: See below
I can't quite get my head around the first of the following two sentences. The second sentence is included to provide more context. >>Die Beteiligung der XYZ [a venture capital fund] nimmt bis maximal 100% der Einlage an der Wertsteigerung des Unternehmens teil. Durch Ausbezahlung dieses Betrages erlischt die Beteiligung.
Tom Funke
English translation:see below
Explanation:
The value of the xyz share of the enterprise may increase by up to 100% of the original amount invested by XYZ. This means XYZ should not have an ROI higher than 100%. At this point the original amount of the XYZ investment plus the 100% ROI is to be paid out to XYZ and the XYZ participation is terminated.

I made this rather long-winded for clarity. You can shorten it to taste.

Thanks all for taking a crack at this puzzle in my behalf! Which was made a bit more fuzzy in the source text as XYZ had already invested here and was about to increase the investment substantially. And it wasn't entirely clear from context which one or both of the sums were being referenced.(I assumed the total of both). I think Dan got it "the rightest". After all they had to stand a chance to make money doing it!

Explanation:
Here is my translation of both sentences:

A share in the value increase of the enterprise shall devolve on the contribution of XYZ until that contribution is repaid in full, after which the participation of XYZ in the enterprise shall cease.

Contribution is probably the same as share holding.

I hope this helps.

Explanation:
This says to me that XYZ will benefit from (participate in) any increase in value of the other company (the one in which they are investing) until a maximum of 100% of their contribution (their investment) has been reached. Once they make their investment back, they no longer hold a stake in the company.
Hope this helps...
