Frankfurt/Main – SME investor HALDER is buying the Aqua Vital Group, a leading supplier of water dispensers for commercial customers, as part of a management buy-out. HALDER has signed an agreement with the sellers, including funds advised by Aheim Capital, to buy the shares. The transaction is currently awaiting approval from Germany’s Federal Cartel Office.

A team led by lead partner and private equity expert Dr Oliver C. Wolfgramm advised HALDER on all aspects of the transaction from the start.
