Equistone to sell ROTH GRUPPE to Patrimonium

16 Oct 2020

Funds advised by Equistone Partners Europe (“Equistone”) have agreed the sale of their majority stake in ROTH GRUPPE AG, a leading Swiss provider of structural fire protection, technical insulation and coating solutions, to a fund advised by Patrimonium Private Equity Advisors AG (“Patrimonium”). The financial terms of the transaction are undisclosed.

Founded in 2001 and with 450 employees today, ROTH GRUPPE, based in Gerlafingen, Switzerland, is a leading regional specialist provider of passive fire protection and insulation solutions, as well as related services for the construction sector. Its portfolio includes consulting, planning, installation and long-term maintenance services for major infrastructure projects as well as public and private buildings. ROTH’s customers comprise an established and extensive network of general and construction contractors, installers, architects and companies specialising in construction and building services engineering, as well as industrial and retail companies.

Equistone acquired a majority share in ROTH GRUPPE in September 2016 and has driven the organic and strategic growth of the Swiss technology leader in recent years through a total of three add-on acquisitions. With the acquisition by Patrimonium, the aim is to leverage new market synergies and create long-term growth opportunities. The operational structure of the company will remain unchanged.

Dirk Schekerka, David Zahnd and Roman E. Hegglin led the transaction on behalf of Equistone. Equistone was advised by ZETRA International (M&A) and Baker McKenzie (Legal).
