Dubai International Capital sells Mauser to Clayton, Dubilier & Rice
Dubai International Capital (DIC), the private equity arm of Dubai Holding, has completed the sale of Mauser Group to Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (CD&R) for circa USD1.7 billion.
The agreement for the sale was announced on 12 May 2014.
David Smoot, chief executive officer of DIC, says: “We are extremely pleased with the outcome of the Mauser sale. This transaction demonstrated DIC’s ability to improve and grow the companies it has invested in to ultimately achieve an attractive value at the point of exit. We are now focused on continuing to enhance the value of our remaining portfolio as we prepare the companies for an eventual exit.”
Mauser, a producer of rigid industrial packaging with approximately 4,400 employees and consolidated revenues of over USD1.6 billion, was originally acquired by DIC in 2007 in a deal that valued the group at circa USD1.1 billion.
Bank of America Merrill Lynch acted as exclusive financial advisor to DIC. Latham & Watkins provided DIC with legal counsel.
