The transaction took place in the context of a successful corporate succession of the well-established family business. The new owner, AURELIUS Growth Investments, intends to continue the company’s growth path by strengthening its core business as well as engaging in add-on acquisitions of complementary industrial service providers. The tailored financing solution of HF Debt incorporates this strategy by providing a Unitranche for the buy-out paired with a flexible acquisition facility.

Andreas Doerfert, Managing Partner of HF Debt GmbH comments on the transaction with AURELIUS Growth Investments: “With its stable business model and long-standing and solid customer relationships, Marcus Transport has reasonable diversification effects on our current credit portfolio. AURELIUS was searching for a flexible financing solution in the bank-dominated German small-cap segment, the so-called “Mittelstand”. Although the access to alternative financing sources is typically limited for small companies, HF Debt provided a financing solution suitable for SMEs such as Marcus.”

In particular, HF Debt provides debt financing to small and medium-sized companies with an EBITDA of €2m or more and financing requirements between €4m and €15m. With a clear focus on the German-speaking area (“DACH”), as well as Western Europe, HF Debt invests in well-established companies with a proven business model across various sectors. Andreas Doerfert states: “With 11 closed transactions since May 2018, we are able to prove that a large number of smaller companies in the DACH region require alternative financing solutions and HF Debt is contributing to satisfy these financing needs.”
