Heuking advises FairCap on the acquisition of NYCO Flexible Packaging GmbH
Led by Benedikt Raisch, Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek legally advised FairCap GmbH on the acquisition of NYCO Flexible Packaging GmbH (NYCO) from Clondalkin Group, a subsidiary of Dutch investment firm Egeria.
NYCO is a leading manufacturer of advanced and sustainable packaging solutions for the food, beverage, household, personal care, and healthcare industries in Europe. The company specializes in the lacquering and coating of plastic films and aluminum foils, as well as the production of die-cut lids, shrink sleeves, and roll stock for every type of application. In recent years, NYCO has successfully developed particularly resource-saving and recyclable films, for which it has received national and international packaging awards.
FairCap wants to further expand the company’s expertise and make the most of its market opportunities. The investor supports NYCO to fully achieve its potential as an independent company and to further develop forward-looking sustainable packaging solutions.
FairCap GmbH is an entrepreneurial investment company that acquires SMEs in turnaround situations (carve-out, turnaround, succession) and transforms them holistically into sustainable, healthy organizations. Unlike typical private equity funds, FairCap is a long-term investment holding company that is not subject to a fund term and can hold investments for the long term. Sustainability is a core element of FairCap’s investment philosophy.
FairCap regularly works with Heuking. For Stuttgart-based Salaried Partner Benedikt Raisch, this has already been the third transaction with FairCap within the last few months. The most recent transaction was advised jointly with Swiss peers Dr. Jürg Luginbühl and Gordana Nišević of the law firm of VISCHER.
