Solution & result


Valetis organized and coordinated the structured sales process as exclusive M&A advisor and accompanied the owner throughout the entire process. A particular success factor was the transparent, trusting and barrier-free communication with all stakeholders during the entire process.


With the sale of the shares (indirectly) in CMP and its integration into the UKM Group, an industrial and financially stable solution was found for the strategic development of Umformtechnik Radebeul with its over 160 employees. The acquisition of Umformtechnik Radebeul was a strategic investment in UKM’s expansion strategy.
