Nanogate enhances its engineering expertise through strategic partnership with ERBIWA and plans investment




Göttelborn, Germany, May 9, 2019. Nanogate SE, a leading global technology company for design-oriented, multifunctional components and surfaces, is strengthening its engineering know-how and expanding its portfolio thanks to a strategic collaboration with ERBIWA. The company specializes in developing complex plastic components and sophisticated manufacturing processes. Through this strategic partnership, Nanogate is enhancing its technology portfolio with additional applications, for instance, in the integration of stainless steel, carbon fiber or natural materials in plastics. As part of the strategic collaboration, Nanogate is initially planning to acquire 50 percent of the shares of the ERBIWA group.



The ERBIWA group, which is headquartered in Lindenberg, Germany, was founded in 2005. Its customers include top players from the mobility segment and other industries. Alongside the engineering of components, ERBIWA also develops, constructs and procures important production resources and tools. It also manufactures small batches, prototypes and special parts for mass production. In addition to its headquarters, the company also has a production site in China, which focuses on the manufacture of high-quality production instruments. In 2018, the company generated sales of more than EUR 15 million and an attractive rate of return.



Nanogate and ERBIWA have been working together in an operational capacity since 2017. Nanogate plans to first acquire a stake of 50 percent, which is intended to eventually be expanded; closing is subject to the successful implementation of a number of conditions. As part of the transaction, the current owner of ERBIWA intends to receive shares in Nanogate in addition to a cash consideration. For this purpose, a capital increase in kind may be carried out, which would be in the lower single-digit percentage range of the current share capital. ERBIWA will initially be included in the consolidated financial statements of Nanogate SE at-equity. As contractually agreed, additional details of the agreement will not be disclosed.



As part of the strategic partnership, ERBIWA will be expanded to become an engineering center in Europe for the development of production processes and plastics technologies for the Group. The Group"s existing engineering expertise will be concentrated at ERBIWA, with other sites focusing on component manufacturing and surface enhancement.
