Capiton sold Gimborn to Penta
MP Corporate Finance acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Capiton in the sale of high premium petfood manufacturer and retailer H. von Gimborn GmbH to Penta Investment.
For more than 30 years, Gimborn Holding GmbH has been producing and selling premium products for pets, particularly for cats. The product portfolio ranges from cat litter via supplements with vitamins and minerals to accessories for pets. The main sales channel is specialised shops. In addition, in the Czech Republic, Gimborn owns its own retail division for pet products.
Capiton is a financial investor managed by its owners, which holds shares in bigger medium-sized companies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland due to management buyouts and expansion financing. High-profit companies with a turnover of between EUR 50 and 500 million are preferred. In June 2006, Capiton obtained a 86% interest in Gimborn as part of a management buy-outs and developed the company further together with management.
Penta holds a share in companies with a total annual turnover of EUR 2.2 billion and which employ approx. 25,000 employees. The aim of Penta is to further strengthen the Eastern European business of Gimborn through this acquisition.
