Zur Transaktion

Im September 2007 erwarb capiton die Mehrheit der Anteile an nora im Rahmen eines Management Buy-Outs von Freudenberg & Co KG.

Aufgrund der erfolgreichen Entwicklung des Unternehmens seit Erwerb – gerade auch in der Finanzkrise – sowie der weiteren Wachstumsperspektiven ist capiton überzeugt, dass nora in den nächsten Jahren eine weitere deutliche Wertsteigerung erzielen kann.

Die neuen Gesellschafter des Unternehmens – capiton als Mehrheitsgesellschafter, ICG sowie das Managementteam, das seine Anteile im Zuge der Refinanzierung erhöht – wollen gemeinsam die Umsatz- und Ergebnisentwicklung des Unternehmens durch zusätzliches organisches Wachstum und selektive Zukäufe beschleunigen.

Die Transaktion steht u.a. noch unter dem Vorbehalt der Genehmigung der Kartellbehörden. Über die detaillierten Konditionen der Transaktion haben die Parteien Stillschweigen vereinbart.

capiton wurde bei dieser Transaktion von BMH Bräutigam & Partner (Legal) und KPMG (Steuern) beraten.
