Lead Adviser on the Sale of Lintec Graphic Films
Wilson Partners Corporate Finance is delighted to announce that we acted for the Shareholders on the sale of Lintec Graphic Films Limited (LGF) to Lintec Europe B.V. (a subsidiary of Lintec Corporation Japan).
Since its establishment in the Thames Valley in 1993, LGF has become a leading European supplier of pressure sensitive adhesive materials for durable label applications and screen/digital solutions.
Having built up years of trading history with Lintec Corporation Japan, LGF is the perfect fit to develop Lintec’s growth strategy throughout Europe, is positioned as its most important partner in promoting its brand strategy in Europe and goes some way to delivering key actions from Lintec’s Innovation Plan 2016 through key strategic acquisitions.
Andy Voss (CEO Lintec Graphic Films) said:
“I’m really looking forward to our future. The sale more than achieved our goals, is great timing for all and joining the Lintec Group will deliver an even greater plan together.
The deal process and negotiation was a tricky path that needed advisers with patience, tenacious skill and a caring attitude as we had a long trading history with Lintec Corporation Japan and 20 years of trust and respect to accommodate. We were expertly advised by Adam and his team at Wilson Partners throughout the transaction. They certainly navigated a large process negotiating with a foreign listed buyer in multiple jurisdictions/languages. Wilson Partners and our legal advisers, Glenn Skivington and his team at Gordons Solicitors Ltd, was a winning combination to complete the deal.”
Kazuhiro Kusakari (Lintec Europe B.V) commented:
“We are delighted to have acquired LGF as part of our strategy for growth and expanding Andy’s role throughout Europe. Andy and LGF have been important to us over many years and we see a seamless transition into the group. We also found LGF’s advisers to be very professional, clear and pro-active in negotiating and managing the deal with a real commercial attitude.”
Adam Wardle, Head of Corporate Finance at Wilson Partners added:
“There was only ever going to be one ideal partner and acquirer for LGF and I am delighted for Andy and the business to have finally integrated into Lintec. The synergies are obvious and the history of the two business and friendship they have built up over many years I know sees Andy very excited about the next chapter for him and the business.”
