MPS – Takeover by ABN AMR
THE NETHERLANDS • ABN AMRO Participaties (AAP) has reached an agreement to acquire MPS Group B.V., the parent company to MPS Systems BV, a global provider of end-to-end narrow and mid-web printing solutions, from majority shareholder Braver Investments, Oost NL and the founders of MPS.
Wim van den Bosch (CEO), Willem Huijink (CFO) as well as founders Bert van den Brink and Eric Hoendervangers will remain with the business and invest alongside AAP.
Wim van den Bosch comments: “In the past few years under the ownership of Braver Investment and Oost NL, MPS has gone through a strong development from a product, a financial and an organizational point of view. Therefore, we are now ready to enter into a new growth phase to become a top-3 player in the market. I am convinced that with the support of AAP we will be able to achieve our ambitious growth target the coming years.”
