Frankfurt, 7. November 2014. SME-investor Halder has acquired Amoena Group, Raubling/Germany, through a management buy-out from funds advised by GB Deutschland and Baird Capital. Amoena’s management will remain as shareholders.

Within a multi-channel distribution concept, key sales channels include medical supply stores, hospitals, department stores and boutiques. Worldwide, Amoena employs a staff of 700. Over the next years, the company plans to increase sales of the functional sports- and leisurewear segment (shirts, tops, nightwear and wellness apparel).

Halder has been active in Germany since 1991 and has provided 37 SMEs with financing for succession and growth. Its current fund Halder-GIMV Germany II has acquired eight mid-cap firms in total. Readers of Private Equity International magazine have voted Halder “Private Equity Firm of the Year in Germany” for 2013.
