Profile (strategy) of this specialty chemical company buyer

The buyer is a large company, specialized in supplying the oil industry, providing fuel marking systems and oil supply chain protection services. The company supplies dyes, markers and detectors to the petroleum and other industries.

The buyer also owns a small specialty chemical business unit with under 100 employees and a turnover of 30 million EUR. The company wants to strengthen this line of business and quickly grow turnover and market share. Therefore, alongside the organic growth plans for this business line, the buyer is seeking opportunities to diversify its product portfolio and customer base. The company is interested in acquiring specialty chemical companies in Europe, which would complement its current product portfolio.

The company started with a more aggressive acquisition strategy mainly in order to reduce its future dependence on the oil industry by expanding its product portfolio and customer base into different markets via acquisition(s).

The company has already made an acquisition in the past. Now the company has more than 5 million EUR ready for acquisition out of its funds, which could be complemented by more than 5 million EUR from bank sources. Potentially more funds will be available, but the volume depends on the scale/profitability of the target.

Activities and products of a suitable target 

The buyer is looking for specialty chemicals manufacturers, or specialty chemicals technology companies. The company should have at least 250.000 EUR in EBITDA and have a stable financial situation.

The target can also be a toll manufacturing company, or a company active in fuel technology or markers, as this would be highly complementary to the buyer’s line of business. However, the company can be also just a specialty chemicals manufacturer with a product range outside of petroleum.

The target can have its own manufacturing facilities, however, having the production outsourced is not a problem.

The buyer is ready to bring synergies to the target such as extensive technical expertise, supply chain management know-how.
