Gessel has advised the Avallon fund on its sale of a majority stake in MPS International.
The Avallon fund is an independent Polish private equity manager.
MPS International accepts orders for formulation and production of cosmetics on a white label basis, working with clients on new recipes, testing them at the MPS laboratories, drawing up the requisite documentation, and designing and producing packaging.
According to Gessel, “the Avallon MBO Fund II acquired the company in the course of a management buy-out in 2014. Over the ensuing seven years, the company went from strength to strength, expanding its product offer, boosting revenue by 67%, and EBITDA – by no less than 87% in juxtaposition with figures for 2020. Over the same period, MPS increased its employee headcount from 234 to 340.”
Gessel’s team included Partner Maciej Kozuchowski, Managing Associate Bartlomiej Wozniak, and Senior Associate Majka Rucinska.
Gessel did not reply to our inquiry on the matter.
