PPCF advised the management team of Pelsis on their MBO supported by LDC and BlueBay Asset Management. The transaction provided a successful exit for Chicago-based Wind Point Partners.
€90m revenue Pelsis is the leading European manufacturer of branded pest control products. Its customers span the domestic and professional markets and include independent pest controllers, retailers and facilities management companies. Whilst the business is based in Knaresborough it has sites across Europe following a period of acquisitive growth.
Peter Mangion, CEO of Pelsis said “Operating within the confines of the sale process, PPCF played a crucial role in representing the management team by ensuring our interests were properly understood and incorporated by the principals on both sides of the transaction. It was a great comfort to have them alongside us during some challenging negotiations and the team are delighted with the outcome.”
The transaction provides the management team with an attractive incentive package and the business with the funds to accelerate its global growth strategy.
