IMAP Albia Capital advises Estamode´s shareholders on the sale of their share to Gemba Private Equity
With this acquisition, Gemba expects to provide the company with the resources needed to tackle its ambitious growth plan, thereby generating value for the company’s stakeholders (employees, banks, suppliers and customers).
“Estampaciones Modernas is Gemba Private Equity’s third acquisition since it was incorporated earlier this year, in line with our business model based on the acquisition of Spanish industrial companies in the low-middle market segment. We have high expectations for the company, given its strong customer portfolio and the outlook for the growth of the electric motor sector in the coming years,” states David Gonzalvo, Gemba’s Investment Director.
Estamode, based in Zaragoza, is Spain’s foremost producer of magnetic cores for electric motors and generators, with almost 75 years of experience in the sector.
The company works for top multinationals in the automotive, household appliance, lifting and industrial applications sectors. With exports accounting for more than 60% of its sales, the company had over €21M in revenue in 2021.
