DPI is the largest dental distributor in Belgium, the third largest in France, and has a strong presence in Germany and the Netherlands. The acquisition creates a pan-European leader in the distribution of dental consumables, equipment, laboratory services, aesthetics, and related services with more than 40,000 customers in Europe. Transaction provides springboard for further European consolidation.
Our transaction advisory services team worked closely with DD Group and Sun European Partners, LLP to support throughout the transaction process.
Our services included financial and tax due diligence and SPA support.
We adopted an integrated, hands-on and senior led approach, focusing on the key transaction drivers and areas of risk.
Working closely with DD Group and Sun, we flexed our approach and the phasing of our work to provide the key deliverables and advice at the right time to support the deal negotiations. We provided tax due diligence across multiple jurisdictions, led by the UK team.
We are grateful to the whole Grant Thornton team for the support and advice received during the transaction process. The team were commercial, pragmatic and key issues focused ensuring we had the information required to support the deal negotiations. We are delighted with the outcome and look forward to continue to ongoing deals relationship.Richard Tonthat Head of Corporate Development, DD Group
