Perusa Partners Fund II invests in MÜPRO-Group

Perusa Partners Fund II and co-investors have acquired Secura Industriebeteiligungen AG including MÜPRO-Group and UBB GmbH effective 23 January 2018.

MÜPRO Group is a leading provider of building technology solutions for fixing, sound insulation and fire protection applications with annual revenue of 95 million EUR. Its products and solutions are part of many commercial and residential buildings, industrial plants, and aboard ships, especially for the installation of heating, air conditioning and ventilation equipment.
The investment will support MÜPRO-Group`s long term international growth and help it focus on its core competencies of engineering, development, consulting, and project support.
As of February 2018, the previous owner, Harald Müller, and certain individuals of the previous Secura management team will focus on their newly founded SYMBIONET AG, with its digital products and services directed at medium sized businesses. SYMBIONET`s competence is in sales support software, software platforms, automated logistics services, online distribution and marketing services. The foundation for this digital business model was laid in previous years in the course of Secura Group`s digitization.
Dr. Christian Hollenberg, MD of the advisor Perusa GmbH, explains: “MÜPRO has an impressive history as the leading competitor in its market. In the future, MÜPRO intends to focus on its core competencies of engineering, consulting, project support and production of high quality fixing technology.” The previous owner Mr. Harald Müller says: “This transaction provides MÜPRO with the additional resources to execute on its strategy long term. Both groups – MÜPRO and SYMBIONET – will now be able to grow their respective business models profitably.”
The buyer Perusa Partners Fund II and its co-investors were advised by KPMG (commercial), Deloitte (financial, tax), Gütt Olk Feldhaus (legal), Valleé & Partner (logistics) und TÜV Süd (environment). Network Corporate Finance acted as Debt Advisor in raising and structuring the acquisition financing.
