Munich, August 2020 – Kloepfel Corporate Finance GmbH acted as exclusive M&A advisor to the shareholders of MULTIMON Group on the sale of significant shares to listed DBAG. The closing is expected for the end of Q3.
DBAG has acquired one of Europe’s leading providers of automatic fire extinguishing systems. Within the scope of the investment, a succession solution in a medium-sized family business with re-investment of the management is made possible. With DBAG’s investment in MULTIMON, the management sees an opportunity to further develop the range of services offered and to tap additional market potential.
Founded in Kirchheim in 1982, MULTIMON Group is a solution provider of turnkey fire extinguishing systems for customers in a variety of end markets such as transport & logistics, the automotive industry, the wood industry as well as retail and wholesale. As a fully integrated supplier, the company offers a full range of services, from planning and installation to maintenance and servicing of systems. Successful MULTIMON Group stands out with its professional and technological expertise. The company looks back on a history of more than 30 years in which the group has grown to include 14 companies in Germany and abroad.
Edward Skube, the Managing Director of MULTIMON Group, sees DBAG’s investment as an opportunity to successfully exploit current market developments. “Our market is on the move – with DBAG we can take advantage of the opportunities that arise from this,” says the CEO. With reinvestment of the existing management, the Company retains the driver of successful growth in the past for the future. Wolfgang Schmid, the company’s founder, has already handed over the operational business to Edward Skube in recent years and sees the future of the Group in good hands with DBAG.
“Kloepfel Corporate Finance has exclusively accompanied us with great commitment and dedication in this transaction, which was particularly challenging in the current market environment of COVID-19 and the given time frame. With a high degree of fairness and transparency towards all parties involved, a successful result was achieved for both DBAG and the seller. I would like to thank Dr. Frank and his team for their care, advice and support during the process,” says Edward Skube, who is delighted with the cooperation.
Kloepfel Corporate Finance acted exclusively as M&A advisor to MULTIMON Group and was able to structure, negotiate and successfully complete the sale within a very limited M&A process.
