Ethica Corporate Finance advised 21 Investimenti, Overseas Industries and certain members of the management team in the sale of Nadella to Intermediate Capital Group (ICG)

Ethica Corporate Finance has been co-advisor to the shareholders and management of Nadella – market leader in precision linear and rotational motion control solutions for a wide range of industrial end-markets, including packaging machinery, automation, transportation and medical industries – in its sale to ICG.

Nadella has facilities in Italy, Germany, China and the United States and employs approx. 210 people.

ICG is a global asset manager – based in London but with 13 offices worldwide – with over €27 billion under management in various funds investing both debt and equity.

Ethica Corporate Finance has been working alongside Nadella, its shareholders and its CEO Mr. Livio Marchiori for years now, both in shareholding transitions (the sale to ICG is the third consecutive Buy-Out advised by Ethica), and in scouting for potential add-on targets; this allowed the team to develop a solid understanding of the business and a strong relationship with key people.

The acquisition by ICG, top flight international investor acting with medium/long term focus, allows Nadella and its management team to continue in the ongoing development and organic growth plan and to focus again on potential M&A opportunities.
