Deutsch: Orrick berät Luxempart und NomaInvest bei Einstieg in die Rattay-Gruppe 

Orrick advised Luxempart and NomaInvest in their acquisition of a stake in the international metal tube specialist Rattay. As part of the transaction, former shareholder K-Invest exits the company, co-shareholder S-UBG increases its stake and the management of the Rattay Group maintains a significant share.

The Rattay Group produces metal hoses, complete hose assemblies and metal compensators for all industrial sectors. The company has locations in Germany, Austria, Denmark, Czech Republic, Hungary and England. With the support of its new investors, the Rattay Group plans to continue its international expansion strategy.

Luxempart is an investment company listed on the Luxembourg stock exchange. It manages a portfolio of listed and non-listed companies, primarily located in Luxembourg, Germany, France, Belgium and Northern Italy. Luxempart’s investment strategy focuses on long-term investments, with no pre-determined exit.

NomaInvest acquires participations in ambitious companies with innovative projects and a competent, motivated team. It accompanies these companies as a strategic partner and supports them in new growth phases, with an emphasis on the economic development of the regions and the creation of sustainable jobs.

Luxempart and NomaInvest were advised by a Düsseldorf-based Orrick team led by M&A and Private Equity partner Sven Greulich. While Luxempart is a longtime client of the firm, this was the first time NomaInvest turned to Orrick for counsel. The Orrick team also included partners Wilhelm Nolting-Hauff (M&A and Private Equity), Stefan Schultes-Schnitzlein (Tax), André Zimmermann (Employment) and Till Steinvorth (Antitrust); counsel Nikita Tkatchenko (M&A and Private Equity); and associates Johannes Rüberg (M&A and Private Equity) and Julia Schmitz (M&A and Private Equity).
