Cologne, 3 April 2023 - Ebner Stolz has advised the French DELFINGEN Group (DELFINGEN), a leading global manufacturer of cable protection systems, on the acquisition of REIKU GmbH (REIKU).
Founded in 1954, DELFINGEN Group is today a listed and family-run company based in Anteuil (France). DELFINGEN is one of the world's leading manufacturers of cable protection systems, particularly in the automotive sector and in industrial applications. The group generated in 2022 sales of around EUR 420 million with approx. 3,500 employees at 28 production sites in 21 countries.
REIKU GmbH, founded in 1969 and headquartered in Wiehl (North Rhine-Westphalia), manufactures cable protection systems, primarily for industrial applications in the fields of automation and robotics.
DELFINGEN has grown strongly in recent years and has become increasingly international. Development has been driven both organically and inorganically. In the course of the group's intended growth, DELFINGEN is continuously looking for suitable acquisition opportunities.
The majority shareholding in REIKU is therefore a further milestone in achieving those strategic growth targets. It further strengthens DELFINGEN’s market position in the important German market while also accelerating its footprint in the industrial sector.
Ebner Stolz advised DELFINGEN through an interdisciplinary team in the areas of M&A Advisory, Financial and Tax Due Diligence. The parties have agreed not to disclose the financial terms of the transaction.
Team Ebner Stolz: André Laner (Project Lead, Partner, M&A Advisory) and Daniel Kochan (M&A Advisory), Dr. Nils Mengen (Partner, Transaction Advisory Services), Gero Ohrner and Franz La Rosée (all Financial Due Diligence), Thomas Herzogenrath (Partner, M&A Tax), Robert Backes (Partner, M&A Tax), Fabio Ferrara, Alexander Irkes, Sabrina Stommel, Felicia Schulerecki and Julius Krumme (all Tax Due Diligence)
