Deal Announcement

goetzpartners successfully advised Nord Holding on the acquisition financing for the acquisition of hg medical group

10. septembre 2020

Our debt advisory mandate comprised the successful and comprehensive management of a competitive acquisition financing process. We provided key support during the transaction by structuring a demanding and competitive financing solution in a complex cross-border setup with majority of sales being generated in the US. During the transaction we approached relevant banks and debt funds alike and played a vital role in lender education and the compilation of relevant information documents. By coordinating and providing feedback to the respective due diligence providers we ensured tailor-made and bankable due diligence reports could be provided to the interested financing parties. Within a competitive term sheet process we secured optimal financing terms for hg medical and Nord Holding, ensuring that the established financing structure provides maximum flexibility to support further organic and inorganic growth of the group. With our successful management of the financing process we provided key support to Nord Holding to provide the best purchase offer, sign the SPA and win the acquisition of hg medical group during a short exclusivity period within a competitive M&A process organized by Quarton International.
