- With the help of the subordinated loan provided by Rantum Capital, Hin terkopf will continue on its successful growth path
Frankfurt-based asset manager Rantum Capital has invested long-term economic equity in the form of a subordinated loan into Hinterkopf GmbH, headquartered in Eislingen an der Fils near Stuttgart in southern Germany. Hinterkopf is one of the world market leaders in the development and production of machines used for the printing of aluminum and plastic hoses, aerosole cans and aluminum bottles. The company, which is 100% family-owned, currently has a world market share of 40%. Hinterkopf’s customer list includes international producers of consumer goods such as the cosmetics sector (e.g. hair sprays), beverage companies (e.g. aluminum beer bottles) and the pharmaceutical industry (e.g. lotions and tubes). The reason for the financing is a technology step related to a new machine generation that the company has developed over the last two years. In order to realize the resulting growth opportunities, the company has now bolstered its balance sheet with a subordinated loan from Rantum Capital in addition to the existing senior loans of its relationship banks.
“During the intensive due diligence, Rantum Capital was flexible at all times. You could tell that Rantum Capital is backed by entrepreneurs, such as Dr. Rogowski, who understand the dynamics of our customer markets and the specifics of our corporate culture”, said the entrepreneur and CEO of Hinterkopf, Mr. Alexander Hinterkopf. Rantum’s Chairman of the Advisory Board, Dr. Michael Rogowski, who also was actively involved into the due diligence, commented: “We are delighted to back an exceptional family entrepreneur on his further growth path and are looking forward to partnering with Hinterkopf in the future”.
