CDI Global Australia Advises Sale of Kaymar to Auto Pacific Group
By: CDI Global
Kaymar is Australia's leading rear bar manufacturer for off-road vehicles. They have a niche product line of premium rear protection bars, rear mounted spare wheel carriers and jerry can holders. Kaymar custom designs their products to provide maximum compatibility with specific models of most leading 4x4 vehicles, making them popular among owners.
CDI ANZ was called on to assist Kaymar in finding a buyer who was a good strategic fit for the company. The sell mandate was somewhat challenging due to both the state of the market and a previous sale attempt that limited approachable targets.
"The business unsuccessfully attempted to divest only 18 months ago through another advisory group," said Toon Van Beeck, Partner at CDI ANZ. "We were gratified, particularly in this difficult economic climate, to secure a number of offers and be able to choose the best strategic fit for our client."
Backed by private equity fund Pacific Equity Partners, Auto Pacific Group (APG) is the largest manufacturer of towbars installed directly to major vehicle manufacturers. They have various branded businesses under the APG banner, the majority of which are focused on aftermarket vehicle products. The acquisition of Kaymar provides longevity and growth for the brand.
