goetzpartners has played a vital role in providing a tailored financing solution in a complex cross-border transaction. We have been very pleased with the ongoing support and deep expertise the goetzpartners team has showcased throughout the entire, tight-knit process. We want to thank goetzparters and are looking forward to future engagements. RONALD GROTT Member of the Investment Committee hg medical Nord Holding participated in a competitive M&A process organized by Quarton International to acquire hg medical group, a leading German and US based vertically integrated contract manufacturer for orthopedic implants. goetzpartners Debt Advisory was mandated to structure an optimal acquisition financing solution and to arrange a competitive financing process to secure optimal terms. Based on the existing management case we derived the financing case as well as the covenant model based on more conservative planning assumptions and including the optimal financing structure. In a first step, goetzpartners Debt Advisory approached relevant banks and debt funds to participate in the acquisition financing process. Via our extensive financing network and good market contacts we ensured that most relevant financing parties were approached. By managing the whole information process, we ensured an optimal lender education and that tailor-made information was provided to lenders via due diligence reports as well as during due diligence calls and the management presentation. Meeting a tough timeline, we successfully managed to obtain several term sheets and commitment letters for the acquisition financing in time to enable Nord Holding to provide most competitive bid during the M&A process and to meet its short exclusivity timeline for the successful signing of the SPA. Based on the established acquisition financing solution, hg medical is optimally set up for future organic and inorganic growth. FOLLOW US: © goetzpartners, September 2020
