Frankfurt am Main, 22 May 2018
SKYE PARTNERS has legally advised Ambienta SGR (“Ambienta”) and the former shareholder GP Holding on the sale of Oskar Nolte Group (“Oskar Nolte”) to Hamburg-based Peter Möhrle Holding (“PMH”). The parties have agreed not to disclose the terms of the transaction.
Oskar Nolte, headquartered in Kirchlengern in East Westphalia, is a leading manufacturer of wood paint systems for special applications in the furniture and furniture supplier industry. The company pioneered the development of solvent-free coating systems. The range of products and services combines forward-looking, high-performance coating systems with high-quality consulting expertise for surface coating.
Ambienta is a leading European equity investor with locations in Milan, Duesseldorf and London and assets under management of more than EUR 500m. The focus is on growth investments in industrial companies that focus on trends in environmental technologies.
As part of this strategy, Ambienta acquired a stake in Oskar Nolte in 2015 and, in cooperation with GP Holding and the extended management, has significantly developed the company and its international presence in recent years.
