Buy & Build: CGS acquires majority stake in InnoLas Solutions

10. May 2018

Pfäf­fi­kon (Switzerland)/ Krailing/ Stutt­gart — A private equity fund advi­sed by CGS Manage­ment AG has acqui­red a majo­rity stake in Inno­Las Solu­ti­ons GmbH. Toge­ther with the previous owner Richard Grund­mül­ler, who will retain a stake in the company, CGS intends to deve­lop Inno­Las Solu­ti­ons GmbH into a global laser machine buil­der for micro­ma­te­rial proces­sing as part of a buy and build stra­tegy. CGS Mana­gent AG was advi­sed by a team led by Stut­t­­gart-based part­ner Dr. Hermann Ali Hinde­rer of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek.

Inno­Las Solu­ti­ons GmbH is a deve­lo­per and produ­cer of custo­mi­zed machi­nes and process solu­ti­ons for high-precision laser appli­ca­ti­ons in the photo­vol­taic, electri­cal and semi­con­duc­tor indus­tries as well as in precision engi­nee­ring. With 80 employees, the company supplies custo­mers in the core markets of Europe, the USA and Asia. Inno­Las Solu­ti­ons GmbH has its head­quar­ters in Krailling, Germany.

CGS Manage­ment AG has its regis­tered office in Pfäf­fi­kon SZ, Switz­er­land. CGS deve­lops medium-sized compa­nies into inter­na­tio­nal groups. CGS funds have been inves­ting in plat­form compa­nies in the German-spea­­king coun­tries of Europe and in comple­men­tary acqui­si­ti­ons world­wide since 1999.

Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek provi­ded compre­hen­sive legal advice to CGS on the tran­sac­tion. The advice also inclu­ded the super­vi­sion and coor­di­na­tion of the acqui­si­tion of assets in the USA. Following the acqui­si­tion of the Stürtz Group, the take­over of Inno­Las Solu­ti­ons GmbH is already the second tran­sac­tion that Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek has advi­sed CGS on within the last six months.
