Although Novago was a local waste management company focused on municipal waste collection and landfilling, Abris recognized its greater potential having already completed a detailed evaluation of the Polish waste management industry. The company owned a substantial land bank officially approved for waste treatment and had proprietary technologies enabling advanced waste recovery in accordance with industry best practices, making it an attractive target.
Deal history and structure
In-depth knowledge of industry drivers and challenges allowed Abris to quickly build a constructive dialogue with Novago’s entrepreneur-owner and secure early exclusivity during a highly competitive auction process. Abris achieved a very attractive price at entry, investing EUR 20 million for a 60% stake, with the founder retaining 40%.
