The IMAP team for M&A transactions in special situations, advised Awetis GmbH (AWETIS) during their insolvency proceedings in self-administration, on the sale of its subsidiary Awetis Systems GmbH & Co. KG. Freudenberg Group, headquartered in Weinheim, acquired 100% of the shares.

The turn-key-solutions are used mainly in the automotive, consumer goods, mechanical and plant engineering as well as medical technology sectors.
The fully owned subsidiary Awetis Systems GmbH & Co. KG provides production-related IT for process optimization, production management and transparent data collection.

IMAP, as part of a limited auction, only approached selected investors. The sale of the subsidiary is a successful initial step in the restructuring process of AWETIS.
