The Shareholders of Polymetrix plan to sell their shares in Polymetrix and combine the Company with a strategic buyer who can contribute significant synergies and support Polymetrix’s development into the next growth phase, expanding its technology and service portfolio and securing sustainable business advantages.
Following the spin-off from the Swiss-based Bühler Group (leading in food and advanced material processing technologies) and rebranding as Polymetrix AG in 2015, the company is distinctly positioned for growth in connection with the blossoming packaging and specialty plastics market. Polymetrix will also focus on supplying technologies and integrated plants for recycling of postconsumer plastics.
In this context, the Shareholders of Polymetrix, the Swiss-based financial investor Cross Equity and Bühler Holding AG, have jointly decided to sell all shares in Polymetrix to an international industrial partner. Under new ownership Polymetrix is intended to be able to fully exploit its values and competencies, and to benefit from a dedicated strategically oriented business environment.
The Shareholders are dedicated to sell Polymetrix to an industrial owner with strong financial back-ground and a leading international position in the relevant market segments. Financial investors are explicitly not invited to bid. Qualified investors with interest in the acquisition of Polymetrix are kindly requested to present their rationale and strategic fit within their business portfolio along with their bidding inquiry.
In 2016 Polymetrix expects to achieve a turnover of approximately CHF 55 million at sustainable double digit EBITDA margins. Polymetrix employs an international engineering workforce of more than 70 specialists.
