finnCap Cavendish Debt Advisory supports Chiltern Capital on cross-border M&A

Chiltern Capital has acquired Finnish flexible packaging company, Amerplast, and will combine it with Hanmere Polythene and Plasmech Packaging to form an enlarged, pan-European group.

Amerplast CEO, Mark Rooney, becomes the group CEO, working with Chairman, David Lennon and CFO, Jim Farrell, as well as the wider senior management team, to lead the business in delivering its ambitious growth plans.

The transaction was financed by a £52m multicurrency unitranche facility provided by Arcmont Asset Management and advised by finnCap Cavendish.

David Butler, Investment Manager, Chiltern: “This acquisition demonstrates Chiltern’s desire to support its portfolio companies in delivering both organic and inorganic growth. finnCap brought a number of financing options to the table to fund the acquisition and we are delighted with Arcmont as our partner going forward.”

Alistair Hay, Partner, finnCap Cavendish: “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to advise Chiltern on this transformational, cross-border acquisition. Arcmont stood out as the ideal funding partner for the Group having devoted significant efforts to tailoring a uniquely-structured solution to finance the transaction.”
