Concentro achieves 11th place in Thomson Reuters annual ranking 2018

Nuremberg/ Munich, 14 January

With a total of 19 completed M&A transactions in the German SME segment, the consulting company Concentro Management AG can look back on a successful year 2018. Having achieved 11th place in the mid-market (transactions up to EUR 500 million) and in the small cap (transactions up to EUR 50 million), Concentro Management AG has repeatedly succeeded in placing itself in the top third of the ranking of 49 consulting firms.

In 2018, Concentro assisted with company succession, distressed and insolvency projects in a wide variety of industries. These included leading companies in the respective sectors.

In the first quarter, the "Uniplast-Knauer Group", which produced around 3 billion pieces of plastic packaging for dairy products, was one of its clients. Concentro initiated an international bidding process and held intensive discussions with a wide variety of potential investors. In this case, the listed industrial holding Blue Cap AG prevailed.

In November 2018, a new majority shareholder, IK Investment Partner, joined the SCHEMA Group, the world's leading provider of software for complex (technical) documentation.

Concentro's service portfolio also includes the support of disposals from insolvency, such as our consulting mandate in the healthcare sector. We were looking for a buyer for the outpatient rehabilitation centre "Klinik am Stein" in Dortmund. Following an investor process set up by Concentro, the transfer of business operations and assets to Die Johanniter was successfully completed.
