Swiss Arbonia has sold ILAG to Helvetica Capital

Building supplier Arbonia AG (“Arbonia”) has sold ILAG, a Switzerland-based global provider of non-stick coating solutions for cookware, bakeware and industrial applications, to a Swiss investor group led by Helvetica Capital. The parties have agreed not to disclose any financial details.

Lincoln International acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Arbonia for this transaction as part of the structured international divestiture process for Arbonia’s coatings division which it acquired in the context of the public takeover of Looser Holding. In addition to the disposal of ILAG, this divestiture process also includes the sale of Schekolin’s plastic and metal packaging coatings businesses to Siegwerk (Germany) and Salchi Metalcoat (Italy), respectively, as well as of the wood coatings business Feyco Treffert to Teknos Group (Finland).

The sale of ILAG represents the ultimate step in the successful disposal of Arbonia’s coatings division in four separate, partly highly interdependent, transactions. The combined sale underscores Lincoln International’s position as a leading M&A advisor for corporate disposals with strong advisory expertise in managing highly complex and value-maximising divestiture processes.
