  • Neptus, headquartered in Leonberg west of Stuttgart, is a leading supra-regional water and fire damage restoration company in Germany
  • Optimal regional strengthening of Aqua Group in southern Germany and expansion of its presence in northern Germany
  • Further value creation potential through customer diversification, cross-selling and operational synergies

In August 2021, Aqua Group was created through the acquisition of a majority stake in A. B. T Anlagen- und Bautrocknungs GmbH (“ABT”), headquartered in Langgöns/Hesse, a leading water and fire damage restoration company in the Rhine-Main region, by Rantum Private Equity Fund II. The acquisition of the Neptus Group (“Neptus”) is a further significant step in the Buy & Build platform’s development into a supra-regional player in this sector.

Neptus, headquartered in Leonberg, is a leading provider of water and fire damage restoration and mold remediation services. The company employs over 150 people and operates 14 locations with a focus on southern Germany and some locations in northern Germany. Neptus has achieved significant growth and market share gains in recent years thanks to attractive customer relationships and the management’s sales strength.

Hartwig Finger, Managing Director of Aqua Group: “Neptus is the ideal addition for the supra-regional expansion of our group. The acquisition of Neptus enables us to cement our position in southern Germany and to expand into new regions in northern Germany. Sascha Schreiber and his team are highly motivated and want to continue the growth of recent years.”

Sascha Schreiber, Managing Director of Neptus, adds: “To continue our strong growth, the integration into Aqua Group is the perfect next step for Neptus. The team around Hartwig Finger has convinced me and the entire Neptus management team of Aqua Group’s long-term plan and the central role Neptus will play in it. I am convinced that we can accomplish great things together.”

Aqua Group and Rantum Private Equity Fund II were advised on the transaction by RSM Ebner Stolz (Dr. Roderich Fischer, Holger Beck, Matthias Krankowsky, Alexander Euchner) and Maconda (Rainer Mayer). Acquisition financing was provided by Hypo Vorarlberg (Tobias Schaar, Rainer Terwart) and Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich (Dominik Bauer, Marko Liovic, Helmuth Schönauer). Law firm McDermott Will & Emery (Dr. Matthias Weissinger) provided legal advice to Aqua Group and Rantum Private Equity Fund II in the negotiation of the acquisition financing.
