BELGRAVIA & CO., an international and independent M&A and Corporate Finance advisory firm based in Cologne, advised Henkel AG & Co. KGaA (www.henkel.com) on the sale of its Seville/Spain-based bleach production factory to PHI Industrial Acquisitions (“PHI”). PHI has acquired 100% of the Seville assets effective October 1st, 2013. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.
PHI Industrial (www.phi-industrial.com) is a Spanish investor with offices in Barcelona and Madrid, focused on acquisitions of corporate spin-offs. PHI’s portfolio consists of five companies and 12 factories across Europe, generating some € 240 mil. in sales, with a combined headcount exceeding 1,400 employees.
Henkel Ibérica is the Spanish market leader in the branded bleach category. Henkel and PHI have agreed on a multi-year cooperation that includes continued bleach supply from the Seville factory to Henkel Group. However, PHI will be at liberty to also produce bleach for the private-label bleach market in its Seville factory.
BELGRAVIA & CO. acted as the exclusive M&A advisor to Henkel.
