Supported by OMF, Halder acquires GEALAN-Group from AXA Private Equity

Halder-Funds acquired a majority stake in GEALAN-Group, a leading European manufacturer of window profiles. GEALAN's management team continues to hold its interest in the Company.

GEALAN-Group, Oberkotzau, has an annual turnover of EUR 220 m. and employs 1,250 employees. Yet, GEALAN is Halder's largest investment.

The team which today practices at Otto Mittag Fontane has been advising Halder since the incorporation of the first Halder-Fund in the year 1991.

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

AXA Private Equity was advised by Skadden Arps (Walter Henle, Stefan Koch).
