Reports suggest KraussMaffei is up for sale


News agency Bloomberg is reporting that Madison Capital Partners is exploring the sale of KraussMaffei Group, the world’s largest manufacturer of plastics machinery equipment.
Bloomberg reported the story on 19 June, citing people familiar with the matter, whom the news service did not identify.
Madison Capital bought the plastics machinery group, then called Mannesmann Plastics Machinery GmbH, in 2006. It included some of the plastics industry’s best-known brands: KraussMaffei, Netstal, Berstorff and Demag Plastics Group (which was later sold).
Madison Capital purchased the machinery group from Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (KKR) of New York, for undisclosed terms. KKR had bought MPM in 2002 from Siemens AG, the German industrial group.
Bloomberg is reporting that one of its sources is saying that initial assessments show that KraussMaffei Group could sell for as much as €700m (£563m).
The person told Bloomberg that Goldman Sachs has sent out information to potential bidders, including private equity funds and industry buyers.
The KM group generated record order income of €1.1bn (£885m) in its last financial year, ending 30 September, 2011.
