Private shareholders have sold ISEM Group to Peninsula Capital
ISEM Group is a European leading manufacturer of luxury paper-based packaging mainly for the perfumery and cosmetics sectors. The group offers a complete range of rigid boxes and folding boxes for some of the most prestigious luxury brands.
In 2018, ISEM’s management took over the majority of the company along with a group of private investors. Since then, management successfully established a new business model, strengthened the sales department and invested in more efficient machinery, driving ISEM to a leading position in the market.
Lincoln International crafted a tailored and highly competitive process that resulted in robust interest in the group, due to a compelling investment thesis coupled with thoughtful targeting of highly motivated potential future partners for the business. Ultimately, ISEM’s shareholders selected Peninsula Capital as the preferred investor to partner with during the next phase of its growth.
Saverio Rondelli, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Lincoln Italy, commented, “ISEM is a true leader in the European luxury packaging industry. Management has done a fantastic job to develop the company into a real champion in its sector. We are honored to have played a role in bringing ISEM together with its new partner Peninsula, and we look forward to following the company’s continued growth and success.”
Peninsula is a long-term investor that seeks well-managed companies with strong fundamentals and earning power. Peninsula makes large equity investments using its own capital but is also open to co-investment opportunities with other financial or industrial investors that share its philosophy. The fund seeks both controlling stakes and minority interests with significant influence on the board of directors and executive committee and has a core geographic focus in Europe and Latin America.
Lincoln was a great partner and advisor in achieving this landmark step in ISEM's growth journey. Their ability to maintain a strong competitive tension throughout the process has been crucial to achieve such an outstanding outcome for the deal.
