Scale manufacturer taken over in MBO

Thu, 14 Nov 2019 | MBO/MBI

Weighing scale manufacturer Marsden Weighing Group has been taken over in an MBO. The buyout team was headed by managing director Richard Black and was also backed by private equity firm Alcuin Capital Partners.

Law firm EMW provided a team to advise the exiting Marsden shareholders, as well as a separate team to advise the new management. The EMW team advising the sale was led by Gurpreet Sanghera, with assistance provided by Will Taylor, Habiba Kasker, Amanda deBruyn, Nick Ripper, and Tariq Sayfoo. The team advising the new management was led by Ian Morris and assisted by Kerry Jimenez and Hollie Tompkins.

RSM’s M&A and Private Equity team advised Marsden’s exiting shareholders, while the incumbent management team was advised by Castle Corporate Finance regarding the terms being offered by Alcuin.

EMW’s Gurpreet Sanghera commented: "RSM's expert advice and guidance found the right strategic partner to support the management team and they provided invaluable support to the exiting shareholders throughout the whole process.”

“It was important that Management had their own independent advice on the terms offered by Alcuin and Castle Corporate Finance's impartial advice to management was key in getting the right deal for all the parties.

Sanghera added: "With Richard continuing to lead the management team, supported by Alcuin as strategic partner the retiring family shareholders have certainly achieved their objective. This is an exciting time for Marsden as they embark on the global launch of their market leading product."

Rotherham-based Marsden was established over 90 years ago and now provides its services in 23 countries worldwide. The company works with the medical profession, providing weighing equipment ranging from veterinary to industrial scales.
