Delphi Advisors GmbH advised Allegion plc with the divestiture of its Danish subsidiary Randi to Eco Schulte Group
Allegion plc (NYSE: ALLE), a leading global provider of security products and solutions, closed the deal to sell its Denmark-based producer of door levers, Randi, to Eco Schulte GmbH, a family-owned German producer of trim and lock products. In return, Allegion receives a minority stake in Eco Schulte, forging a mutually beneficial partnership between Allegion and Eco Schulte.
Delphi Advisors acted as the exclusive strategic and financial advisor to Allegion plc.
The deal furthers Allegion’s global growth strategy, strengthening its presence in the German market, while providing Eco Schulte the benefits of a multi-national partner. Eco Schulte is a third generation family-owned manufacturer of high-quality door function systems including levers, mechanical exits, closers and locks. It sells its products through door manufacturers, construction wholesalers, and partners.
The transaction includes a set of commercial agreements related to product sales, product supply, and potentially joint product development. Eco Schulte will be named as a dealer of a large portion of the Allegion EMEIA portfolio in Scandinavia. Conversely, Allegion will have continued rights to the Randi product line for sale throughout Europe. Allegion will also receive a seat on Eco Schulte’s Advisory Board. Randi products will continue to be sold and available in their current markets.
