KGaA, the mid-sized European company acquirer, has finalized its purchase of Gesenkschmiede Schneider, Schöneweiss & Co., and Falkenroth Umformtechnik from CIE Forging Germany, a division of CIE Automotive S.A., on Monday.

Mutares, with its extensive European presence and offices in multiple cities including Munich (HQ), Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Helsinki, London, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Shanghai, Stockholm, Vienna, and Warsaw, is known for acquiring mid-sized European companies showing significant operational improvement potential. The firm typically focuses on repositioning and stabilization before resale.

For the fiscal year 2023, Mutares projects revenues between EUR 4.8 billion to EUR 5.4 billion. The company aims for consolidated revenues of approximately EUR 7 billion by 2025 and EUR 10 billion by 2028. The Management Board and Supervisory Board hold over one-third of voting rights shares.

Traded on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Mutares anticipates a net income of EUR 125 million to EUR 150 million for fiscal year 2025 and EUR 200 million for fiscal year 2028. Portfolio growth increases consulting revenues, with portfolio dividends and exit proceeds accruing to Mutares Holding.
