NIBC supports Optimum Group in its growth ambitions together with our lending partners
Optimum Group is a leading producer of self-adhesive labels that services clients in a wide range of industries including food, industry and pharma. It is active in the Netherlands and Belgium and has around 450 employees.
Backed by sponsor IK Investment Partners, Optimum is growing through a buy-and-build strategy coupled with operational excellence.
Optimum Group called upon NIBC to facilitate its growth strategy, through the financing of add-on opportunities identified by the company and sponsor IK Investment Partners. We provided additional facilities that Optimum used to finance the acquisition of various strategically attractive companies active in the printing label market with highly complementary product offerings.
NIBC’s relationship with Optimum and IK Investment Partners, combined with our in-depth sector knowledge, allowed us to analyse the opportunity swiftly and execute within a short time frame. We also brought in our lending partners to provide sufficient liquidity in support of the acquisitions.
The additional facilities enabled Optimum to further consolidate its market leading position. This transaction underlines NIBC’s focus on supporting clients’ growth paths and strategic objectives.
