  • Mul­ti­na­tio­nal tran­sac­tion team pro­vi­des due di­li­gence sup­port
  • Eb­ner Stolz China Desk au­dits on-site in China
  • Gro­wing in­te­rest in for­eign di­rect in­vest­ment
Stutt­gart, 6th July 2017 - An in­ter­na­tio­nal Eb­ner Stolz tran­sac­tion team lead by Dr. Chris­toph Ep­pin­ger has once again ad­vi­sed the lis­ted Ame­ri­can com­pany Colfax Cor­po­ra­tion on an ac­qui­si­tion in Ger­many. Eb­ner Stolz pro­vi­ded fi­nan­cial and tax due di­li­gence sup­port in both Ger­many and on-site in China, th­rough the Eb­ner Stolz China Desk.
Colfax is a glo­bal ma­nu­fac­tu­ring and en­gi­nee­ring com­pany ba­sed in the US that pro­vi­des gas and fluid-hand­ling so­lu­ti­ons as well as ma­nu­fac­tu­ring tech­no­logy to cu­st­omers around the world. Colfax is lis­ted on the New York Stock Ex­change.
TBi In­dus­tries is a lea­ding in­ter­na­tio­nal ma­nu­fac­turer of high-qua­lity in­dus­trial wel­ding equip­ment. The fa­mily busi­ness has sub­si­dia­ries in Ger­many, France, the Czech Re­pu­blic and China.
The take­over of TBi In­dus­tries is Colfax’s se­cond ac­qui­si­tion in Ger­many this year, with Eb­ner Stolz pre­viously sup­por­ting Colfax in its suc­cess­ful purchase of sha­res in Sie­mens Tur­bo­ma­schi­nen Equip­ment.
“For­eign di­rect in­ves­tors cur­rently have a huge in­te­rest in Ger­man com­pa­nies. But Ger­man com­pa­nies, re­ver­sely, are not pas­sive and also strengt­hen them­sel­ves with ac­qui­si­ti­ons ab­road” says Dr. Chris­toph Ep­pin­ger, au­di­tor and part­ner at Eb­ner Stolz in Stutt­gart. “The coun­tries in which we, as an in­ter­na­tio­nal due di­li­gence team, have been able to help our cli­ents in the past months sound like a trip around the world.”
The in­ter­na­tio­nal tran­sac­tion team has re­cently ad­vi­sed nu­me­rous cross-bor­der tran­sac­tions with due di­li­gence, in­clu­ding Dutch pri­vate equity in­ves­tors with a purchase for suc­ces­sion re­gu­la­tion, the purchase of a US ba­sed com­pany and a Por­tu­guese group by Ger­man in­ves­tors, as well as ad­vi­sing Chi­nese cli­ents with their Wes­tern ba­sed cross-bor­der pro­jects.
Eb­ner Stolz is one of the top ten in­de­pen­dent con­sul­ting firms in Ger­many. It has over 1,300 em­ployees in 15 lo­ca­ti­ons, and is re­pre­sen­ted in all im­port­ant busi­ness cen­ters and ci­ties. Eb­ner Stolz pre­do­mi­nantly ad­vi­ses me­dium-si­zed in­dus­trial en­ter­pri­ses as well as trade and ser­vice com­pa­nies of all si­zes and in­dus­tries. Via its China Desk, Eb­ner Stolz also ad­vi­ses Chi­nese and Ger­man in­ves­tors on iden­ti­fy­ing and exe­cu­ting in­ter­na­tio­nal tran­sac­tions.
