Finatem III Closes its First Transaction: Techno-Physik Engineering Group

Finatem III acquired Techno-Physik-Group from E.G.O. Elektrogeräte AG, Zug, Switzerland. Techno-Physik-Group has its headquarters in Germany and holds subsidiaries in Switzerland, Slovenia and Austria and produces insulation and fire prevention materials. One of its main businesses is the marketing of asbestos free insulations, especially Vermiculit insulations. This is the first transaction for Finatem Fonds III, which held its first close in January 2010. Despite of the changed market conditions Finatem was able to complete this transaction as a leveraged buy-out.

Otto Mittag Fontane was legal counsel to Finatem. The team which practices now at Otto Mittag Fontane has been counsel to Finatem since 2000 and advised on all Finatem transactions.

Advisors:
The team of Otto Mittag Fontane comprised Dr. Hans-Jochen Otto, Dr. Gabriele Fontane, Dr. Thomas Hofacker as well as the associates Dr. Johannes Mai and Ivo Dreckmann.

The Seller was supported by its in-house counsel Kerstin Hunke and Ladenburger Neifeind Schmücker & Homann, Pforzheim (Dr. Felix Ladenburger).
