The founder of Impresta was looking to retire after years of hard work put into the business, but haven’t actively explored M&A options, focusing on running the business.
The available options were not immediately obvious to Impresta, as they had not actively looked for buyers, and hadn’t had any inbound inquiries. Aventis approached Impresta with a proposition to explore the sale of the company and start a structured sale process.
Aventis Advisors did a comprehensive outbound reach to a targeted group of buyers from the industry. At the same time, our advisors helped Impresta’s founder to evaluate the potential transaction structures and select the best option.
Stirring up some competition among the strategic buyers, a satisfying valuation and deal terms were achieved. Despite the restrictions caused by the pandemic, Aventis managed to get the transaction to the finish line. The buyer of Impresta was a Belgian company – Van De Velde Packaging. Van De Velde Packaging is a family-owned business that has been serving the food packaging needs of clients in Europe for over 50 years.
