Ratos, a listed private equity company, will buy office chair manufacturers RH Form and RBM from the companies’ founders, for an undisclosed amount. Ratos’ combined investment in both companies is almost SEK 190 million (€21 million; $28 million), which does not include debt.
Mannheimer & Swartling, a Swedish firm, and Plesner, a Danish firm, advised Ratos.
Ratos has made three other deals this month. Last week it bought two window manufacturers, Lyssand Treindustrier and Frekhaug Vinduet, for an undisclosed sum.
Ratos is a listed private equity company and currently holds investments of about SEK 9 billion.
