OMNICAP advises the CEO on the management buy-out of Global Impact

Think2Act new shareholder; exit for E-Capital

Kim Hendrikx, CEO of Global Impact NV, realized a secondary buy out. In 2009, he and his brother sold the majority of the shares of Global Impact NV to the private equity investor E-Capital. Both brothers remained CEO and retained a minority stake. Recently, Kim Hendrikx got the opportunity to buy back all shares of IHG NV, the holding company that owns Global Impact NV and the Czech subsidiary Cartoon Mania SRO. With the financial support of the private equity investor Think2act, all shares have been acquired and Kim Hendrikx became majority shareholder and sole CEO of the company he founded nearly 20 years ago.

OMNICAP acted as financial and legal advisor of Kim Hendrikx and advised him during the entire acquisition process. OMNICAP assisted in the negotiations with the selling shareholders, sought a suitable private equity investor and negotiated with the banks on the terms of the required acquisition financing. As legal advisor OMNICAP has drafted all the necessary legal contracts with both the selling and acquiring shareholders.
