Colo­gne — Oppen­hoff advi­sed the BMV Group on its realignment and acqui­si­tion of the von den Hoff Group. The von den Hoff compa­nies will be taken over by a newly foun­ded subsi­diary, BMV Holding GmbH & Co. KG.

BMV Betei­­li­­gungs- und Besitz­ge­sell­schaft GmbH & Co. KG, head­quar­te­red in Hamburg, is an asso­cia­tion of medium-sized specia­list buil­ding mate­ri­als trading compa­nies. It main­ta­ins and estab­lishes part­ner­ship alli­ances with natio­nal and regio­nal suppli­ers. The share­hol­ders of the BMV Group are active throug­hout Germany.

The von den Hoff Group opera­tes specialty buil­ding mate­ri­als stores with loca­ti­ons in Düren, Aachen, Erft­stadt, Bonn and Sankt Augus­tin. It includes the roofing supplies Helmut von den Hoff GmbH & Co KG, H. von den Hoff GmbH & Co KG and J. Karl Voll­mar GmbH & Co. In addi­tion, a share in the alumi­num and steel profile system special whole­sa­ler HOBA Alu-Produkte Vertriebs GmbH belongs to the acqui­red group of companies.

By acqui­ring the compa­nies, which had previously been family-owned, the BMV Group was able to obtain a co-share­hol­­der from its own circle and thus streng­then the diver­sity in the medium-sized buil­ding mate­ri­als trade.

“The tran­sac­tion is a novelty in the German Mittel­stand, as it is the first time that an alli­ance company acqui­res a member of its own. With this acqui­si­tion, Mittel­stand is secu­ring the diver­sity and contin­ued exis­tence of medium-sized buil­ders’ merchants,” says Dr. Phil­ipp Hein­richs, Junior Part­ner in the Corpo­rate Law / M&A depart­ment at Oppenhoff.

The Oppen­hoff team led by Dr. Phil­ipp Hein­richs (Corporate/M&A) included Marvin Roch­ner, Julia Höyng (both Real Estate), Dr. Daniel Dohrn, Renée Cherelle Eckruth (both Anti­trust), Marc Krischer and Hanjo Prond­zinski (both Tax). The exter­nal advi­sor was Ulrich Wald­schmidt (Dr. Gehre-Treu­hand GmbH).
