Munich/ Grün­wald — Hübner Schlös­ser & Cie (HSCie) exclu­si­vely advi­sed the share­hol­ders of Schahl­LED Light­ing GmbH on the sale of a majo­rity stake to the private equity fund Active Capi­tal Company (ACC). The mana­ging part­ners remain mino­rity share­hol­ders and, toge­ther with the new inves­tor, will conti­nue to actively promote the growth stra­tegy of Schahl­LED in the future. One of the goals set is now to bring the bene­fits of leading smart LED solu­ti­ons to a broa­der Euro­pean indus­trial custo­mer base.

“Envi­ron­men­tally friendly green tech­no­lo­gies and smart solu­ti­ons are play­ing an incre­asingly important role in today’s economy. With its range of intel­li­gent func­tional LED solu­ti­ons, Schahl­LED effi­ci­ently combi­nes both areas and has also opti­mally posi­tio­ned itself to bene­fit from the emer­ging trend towards an indus­trial Inter­net of Things. In Active Capi­tal Company, Schahl­LED has found the ideal part­ner to take the company to the next level and imple­ment their successful busi­ness model across Europe,” explains Sabine Moel­ler (photo), part­ner at HSCie and project mana­ger for this transaction.

HSCie advi­sed the sellers in all steps of the sales process. The two mana­ging part­ners comment, “We are plea­sed to have selec­ted HSCie as our advi­sor. With HSCie, we had a highly profes­sio­nal and compe­tent part­ner at our side in this crucial phase. In addi­tion to crucial inves­tor access and excel­lent process manage­ment and nego­tia­tion skills, HSCie also stands out for its huma­nity and unwa­ve­ring commitment.”
