3i Growth Capital


vendor advised by
PricewaterhouseCoopers

Issue

Mold-Masters, the leading global manufacturer of hot runner systems for the plastic injection molding industry, needed a lead M&A advisor to market the company and raise private equity growth capital. The company wanted to find the right partner that would better position it to execute on its growth plans and to expand into new markets, while still allowing shareholders to secure a portion of their equity and remain at the helm of the company.

PwC approach

By leveraging its relationships with global private equity firms and securing “stapled-debt” financing, PwC orchestrated a hotly contested auction process that provided a selection of interesting private equity alternatives and delivered an exceptional result to Mold-Masters and its shareholders.

Client benefits

Mold-Masters partnered with U.K.-based 3i Growth Capital, the world’s largest growth capital fund investing in excess of $1.4 billion in businesses every year across Europe, Asia and North America. 3i’s business expertise, financial depth and international capabilities will enable Mold-Masters to accelerate its expansion in Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America and to consider acquisition opportunities both in the hot runner segment and beyond.
