Munich, November 18, 2019 - AURELIUS Equity Opportunities SE & Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A0JK2A8) has successfully completed the sale of its subsidiary Scandinavian Cosmetics Group to Accent Equity 2017, a Scandinavian investment fund.

Successful transformation into a leading Nordic brand management company

The restructuring engineered by AURELIUS included efficiency enhancement and business development measures, as well as the add-on acquisitions of Solis AS and Alf Sörensen AB, leading to a 25 percent revenue increase since the acquisition. Scandinavian Cosmetics today is the biggest manufacturer-independent luxury and consumer brand management company in Scandinavia.

The buyer Accent Equity will support Scandinavian Cosmetics in its next growth phase

Accent Equity has extensive experience in growing businesses in different industries and sectors and is ideally positioned to support the international growth of Scandinavian Cosmetics Group, both organically and through add-on acquisitions. The company's continued development will be supported by the highly experienced management team, the strong position in the Scandinavian market and the company's excellent positioning in all stages of the value chain.

Anleihe der German Real Estate Capital S.A. stark überdurchschnittlich attraktiv

Die Anleihe der German Real Estate Capital S.A. weist aktuell eine Effektivverzinsung von ca. 14 % auf. Da es sich hier quasi um eine Immobilien-Anleihe handelt, ist das Anleiherisiko überschaubar. Insgesamt verfügt die German Real Estate-Gruppe über 6 Objekte, 24 Bestands- und 22 Handelsobjekte, womit eine Kombination aus stetigen Einnahmen und attraktiven Entwicklerrenditen erreicht wird. Wir stufen die Anleihe als stark überdurchschnittlich attraktiv ein.
