Berlin — A Berlin team of Deloitte Legal led by Dr. Julia Peter­sen (Part­ner) advi­sed capi­ton V GmbH & Co Betei­li­gungs KG on the sale of Raith GmbH and AEMtec GmbH and their subsi­dia­ries to the newly estab­lished “capi­ton Quan­tum” fund.

Raith and AEMtec are leading compa­nies in the field of indus­trial tech­no­logy. Under capiton’s owner­ship, both compa­nies have focu­sed on capa­city expan­sion, inter­na­tio­na­liza­tion and impro­ving their tech­no­logy offe­ring in recent years. Toge­ther with the respec­tive manage­ment teams, who will remain on board after the tran­sac­tion, a stra­tegy of orga­nic growth and addi­tio­nal acqui­si­ti­ons will conti­nue to be pursued.

Chris­toph Karbenk, Mana­ging Part­ner at capi­ton (Photo © Capi­ton): “On behalf of the entire capi­ton team, I would like to thank the group of inves­tors who supported us in this tran­sac­tion, as well as the manage­ment teams who have done an outstan­ding job to date. We are very exci­ted to conti­nue this successful part­ner­ship and take both compa­nies to the next level. The trans- action gene­ra­tes strong returns for our exis­ting capi­ton V LPs, who have been left free to either gene­rate liqui­dity or parti­ci­pate in the next chap­ter of both companies.”

In the context of the tran­sac­tion, the Deloitte Legal team was respon­si­ble in parti­cu­lar for the prepa­ra­tion of a compre­hen­sive legal fact­book as well as the execu­tion of the multi­na­tio­nal legal due dili­gence regar­ding the compa­nies of the Raith and AEMtec Group. Under the leader­ship of Deloitte Legal, legal advi­sors from China, the USA and the Nether­lands were invol­ved in the due dili­gence. The finan­cial due dili­gence was perfor­med by Deloitte Finan­cial Advisory.
