Leipzig – Aheim and other shareholders have sold their stake in W.AG Beteiligungs GmbH to funds advised by Swiss firm Kieger AG and French company CIC Capital.
A CMS team headed by Dr Jörg Lips and Dr Juliane Voigtmann advised Aheim on all legal aspects of the transaction. Last year, CMS advised on the sale of PDV Systeme to Aheim, with Aheim being the counterparty on that occasion.
The W.AG Group produces innovative high-quality plastic cases as individual “Made in Germany” packaging solutions at its production site and company headquarters in Geisa. Established in 1992, the company now has 150 employees.
Aheim is an owner-managed, independent private equity firm based in Munich. It solely invests its own capital, plus in exceptional cases capital provided by selected co-investors. In the course of its long history, the Aheim Group has successfully invested in a range of businesses.
Kieger AG is an independent wealth and asset manager headquartered in Zurich. In the private equity arena, Kieger advises funds that invest directly in unlisted companies.
CIC Capital, the international private equity arm of CM-CIC Investissement (the equity financing division of Crédit Mutuel CM11 Group), covers the needs of firms across all areas of equity financing.
