Luther Advises Halder on Acquisition of Sirag, Univer and Uniprod

Luther Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH provided legal advice to Halder on the financing aspects of the acquisition of Sirag AG, Univer AG and Uniprod AG by the portfolio companies Drumag Fluidtechnik GmbH and EPH Elektronik GmbH.


The acquisition financing was provided by LGT Private Debt credit fund.

The Group benefits from the trend towards increasing automation in manufacturing, in addition to the increased demand for energy-efficient and intelligent Industry 4.0 solutions in production.
