Direkt Optik | February 2013

Convex Capital led the sale of Direkt Optik AB, the Swedish retail opticians chain to Benelux based Hans Anders, in a transaction that valued the Business at 11 x EBITDA.

Hans Anders is a private equity backed, pan European retail opticians business, with Revenues in excess of €500m.

The Team at Convex undertook a strategic review of our clients Business and positioned the Company to achieve maximum value in the market.

The Convex team selected a number of strategic acquirers and negotiated the structure, value and timing of the consideration, together with a number of key agreements which will enhance the operation retained to the shareholders.

The Convex difference: strategy to split the business divisions into two sales processes to maximise value, rather than simply selling the whole Group
