SE Blue Equity acquires a majority stake in Roll-o-Matic A/S – one of the world’s leading companies in development and manufacturing of machines and auxiliary equipment to producers of plastic bags on rolls.
Clearwater International acted as the exclusive financial advisor to the owners of Roll-o-Matic A/S. Roll-o-Matic was founded in 1967, and has through recent years been owned by a group of private investors, including the management of the company. Since 2007, the company has been through a very positive development and it is now a logical next step, that a new ownership with new capital and competencies is established. Going forward the ownership will consist of SE Blue Equity and the company’s management.
The Managing Partner of SE Blue Equity, Christian Møller, says about the acquisition: “With the acquisition of Roll-o-Matic, we have acquired a global market leader that has developed a range of machines with a high level of technological know-how, which makes it possible to reduce the raw material consumption in the production of plastic bags on rolls, significantly”. Further, SE Blue Equity and the management have identified an untapped market potential. The company’s products are sold 100% to international customers outside Denmark.
The sellers of Roll-o-Matic is the Horsens-based investment company Corpomatic, a local investor, and the management team consisting of 3 people.
