Munich — NETWORK Corpo­rate Finance acted as debt advi­sor to AFINUM Achte Betei­li­gungs­ge­sell­schaft mbH & Co KG (AFINUM) in struc­tu­ring and raising acqui­si­tion finan­cing for the purchase of TISSO Natur­pro­dukte GmbH (TISSO), a manu­fac­tu­rer of thera­peu­tic food supplements.

AFINUM acqui­res a majo­rity stake in TISSO and forms a new share­hol­der group with the exis­ting share­hol­ders and manage­ment. Toge­ther, the successful growth stra­tegy of the dietary supple­ment manu­fac­tu­rer is to be pursued and acce­le­ra­ted with further deve­lo­p­ments in the areas of sales and commu­ni­ca­tion. NETWORK, as Debt Advi­sor, struc­tu­red and raised acqui­si­tion finan­cing for AFINUM as well as an opera­ting line of credit for the company.

The company TISSO

TISSO produ­ces high-quality nutri­tio­nal supple­ments and deve­lops holi­stic therapy concepts with a focus on the treat­ment of chro­nic complaints. With exten­sive rese­arch and deve­lo­p­ment resour­ces, TISSO has deep value crea­tion in the food supple­ment sector. Further­more, a nati­on­wide distri­bu­tion network of thera­pists forms the corner­stone of the company’s sales stra­tegy. In a highly compe­ti­tive search process, the exis­ting share­hol­ders selec­ted AFINUM as a future growth part­ner to opti­mally align the company for the next phase of its development.b

Markus Junge remains signi­fi­cantly invol­ved in the company as CEO along­side foun­der Albert Hesse. In addi­tion, it was jointly deci­ded to give key perfor­mers a stake in the company as part of the transaction.

The invest­ment in TISSO is the twelfth tran­sac­tion of AFINUM Achte Betei­li­gungs­ge­sell­schaft mbH & Co KG. and stra­te­gi­cally rounds off the port­fo­lio. In July, the invest­ment in evitria, also in the health­care sector, was sold to the Swedish Atlas Group follo­wing successful growth.
