June 09, 2011

Vinge is advising FSN Capital L.P. II et al. in connection with the divestment of the CTEK/Creator Group to Altor Fund III.

The CTEK/Creator group is the world’s premier manufacturer of advanced battery chargers, sold under inter alia the "CTEK" brand, and a provider of consulting services related to product development under the “Creator” brand. CTEK is, in addition to sales under its own brand, delivering battery chargers to well renowned brands such as Rolls Royce, Ferrari, Porsche, Bentley, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Lexus, Lamborghini, Alfa Romeo, Audi, Corvette, Maserati, Scania and Yamaha.

Since the investment by FSN Capital L.P. II in April 2008, CTEK has experienced largely increased sales volumes as well as a largely increased EBITDA despite having made significant investments in sales & marketing, R&D and the overall organization.

Closing of the transaction is subject to applicable competition law approvals.

The Vinge team advising FSN Capital L.P. et al. includes partners Bo Adrianzon and Johan Göthberg and inter alia associates Johan Steen, Carolina Walther and Ulrich Ziche.
