Baker & McKenzie advised Nissha Printing as part of its acquisition of Graphic Controls Holdings, a medical device producer, from WestView Capital Partners II for USD135 million. The closing of this acquisition will happen very soon when the Japanese company purchases shares from U.S. private equity firm WestView Capital Partners.
The acquisition of Graphic Controls provides Nissha with a broad product portfolio of medical devices and consumables, manufacturing capabilities for medical devices, and global sales channels to expand into new businesses for medical devices and consumables. This operation should also create synergies between both groups, which aim for a larger-scale production of electrodes.
Japanese company Nissha Printing manufactures products and develops technologies in various sectors (industrial and medical devices, information and communication, etc.). The company has more than 3,500 employees worldwide.
Headquartered in the US, Graphic Controls Holdings manufactures devices and consumables, especially in the medical field, but also in other sectors. The company has more than 1,000 employees and around 50,000 clients in over 80 countries.
Alyssa Gallot-Auberger (Partner) and Guillaume Nataf (Counsel) advised Nissha Printing on French aspects of the Transaction.
