Advised on Purchase of CompanyIndustrials
Acquired Majority Control of Business Operations
Klimaoprema d.d, the leading Croatian company engaged in engineering in cleanrooms, as well as design, production and service of ventilation, air-conditioning and cleanroom equipment, acquires MCRT GmbH, one of the leading German suppliers of cleanroom and contamination control solutions. In the last few years, Klimaoprema has been successfully marketing its solutions on Western European markets. In fact, the company exports over 90 percent of its products and services. With the acquisition of MCRT, Klimaoprema has gained additional top engineering staff, the use of advanced software packages, expansion of the product range and sales capacity, and greater opportunities for new employment. In addition, the acquisition will help with the internationalization of the business and an even better positioning of Klimaoprema in the German market, where it has been building a strong and recognizable brand for years.
MCRT has been in business for the last 22 years, employing 80 top experts in the field of cleanroom technology for the production of microelectronics, one of the most propulsive branches of electronics in the world. MCRT cooperates with the world's largest manufacturers of optics, microelectronics, and nanotechnology. The company offers a wide range of cleanroom systems, with an emphasis primarily on the design, planning, and production of so-called "mini-environments" for the semiconductor industry. Namely, extremely high requirements for purity are specific to the semiconductor industry, as well as the pharmaceutical and medical technology industry, and MCRT is known for its individual solutions which are present not only in Europe but also the rest of the world.
IMAP Southeast Europe acted as exclusive transaction advisor to the owners of Klimaoprema d.d. on its purchase of 75% of MCRT’s company shares.
We are very pleased to have worked with IMAP again, after our successful collaboration in 2015. This time we had the opportunity to engage IMAP on the buyside of the process. From the initial negotiating stage to the coordination of transaction advisors and the closing of the transaction, their team, led by Goran and Tomislav, successfully managed the entire process, effectively executing it in a short period.
Not only was the IMAP team highly experienced and knowledgeable, but, more importantly, they showed great dedication, loyalty and discretion. I would recommend them to anyone who is considering engaging in any type of M&A activity and I plan to include IMAP in my future projects and continue our great collaboration for years to come.
