Here you find a description of a business sale of a plastics injection moulding company in Germany. The injection moulding company is a family run company focussing on producing plastic parts for the automotive industry, building industry and health care industry a.o. As many other companies, the injection moulding company faced the problem of not having a successor for the owner within the family. The CFIE M&A team helped the seller in the business sale to a regional German buyer. Find more details on the business sale of a plastics manufacturing company below.
The tool making company was faced with many requests from its customers to offer services and products beyond its current scope. Many customers demanded both tools and products. Also, its current facilities wouldn’t allow for very much growth. Therefore the company was looking for an injection moulding company to complement its current activities that ould also provide for additional space in order to be able to expend and reduce costs.
The seller is a manufacturer of plastic parts for an array of industries (automotive, healthcare, building, ...). The current owner has taken over the business from his parents some 40 ago. The company has some own products but acts mainly as contract manufacturer for its clients. The company has revenues of about 2 million EUR and well maintained machinery. The owner has no successor in the family as his children have developed other careers. Therefore the continuation of the company had to be achieved by selling to an appropriate buyer. Due to tax regulations, the bulding, which was owned by the owner personally and not by the company, would need to be sold alongside the business.
Approximately one year prior to the selling process Frits Verheesen performed a quick and dirty vendor due diligence of the company in order to find areas of improvement and to match the owner’s expectations with market requirements.
The CFIE M&A team helped the seller in preparing the relevant business sale documentation and in the valuation of the company. The team determined the strategy of how to go to market. Further, it worked out a plan and strategy to achieve the highest sales price for the seller, including selling the real estate. An overview was made which buyers to speak to and how to structure the sales process. Frits Verheesen helped in approaching the right buyer and brought them together. Both companies realized the benefits of the combination. Frits Verheesen helped the seller in negotiating a good agreement which ended in a M&A transaction in form of an asset deal between both companies.
