CF-P advised the shareholders of Masa Group

Classen Fuhrmanns & Partners advised the shareholders of Masa Group in the acquisition of the majority shareholding by CGS III (Jersey) L.P.

The Masa GmbH is a medium-sized company with its seat in Andernach and specialized in the design of machinery and plants for the concrete industry. In addition to locations in Andernach and Porta Westfalica, the group has subsidiaries in the United States, China, Russia, India and the Middle East. It employs approximately 500 employees.

The investment, which was completed at the end of July 2014, was processed via a newly founded intermediate holding company, in which the former majority shareholder, Ms. Olga Vercammen is also a shareholder. Ms. Vercammen commented on the transaction as follows:

„The merger with CGS is an ideal solution to the issue of finding someone to succeed me. It will ensure Masa Group a continuous development in line with a clear industry-oriented strategy.”

Since the end of 2013, CGS is also the majority owner of the Top-Werk Group, which operates in the same segment with the brands HESS, Prinzing Pfeiffer and SR Schindler.

The transaction team of Classen Fuhrmanns & Partner was led by Dr. Dirk Classen and included Dr. Achim Fuhrmanns, Frauke Classen, Dr. Lars Störring and Maximilian Drechsel, LL.M.
