“Yuno distinguishes itself with its sector knowledge”
“Yuno Advisors distinguishes itself with the sector knowledge they possess or build up rapidly within a certain market segment. They are able to convert that knowledge into a strategy and plan, and are therefore very capable to link potential buyers and sellers of companies. Very reliable professionals!”
Carel van Bemmelen, Chairman Supervisory Board of Royaan Group
Royaan Group sold the oriental snacks producer Tjendrawasih, located in Alkmaar, the Netherlands, to the bake-off and bread snacks company Dutch Bakery together with Standard Investment. Royaan has been part of NPM Capital – the private equity vehicle of SHV Holdings from the Fentener van Vlissingen family – since 2007, after the acquisition of Cold Food, well-known for its Kwekkeboom en Van Dobben brands. Tjendrawasih was acquired by Royaan Group in 2010 from the Tan family, but continued to operate as an independent unit. At the same time as the sale of Tjendrawasih, Royaan also divested its non-oven snack activities related to Kwekkeboom and Van Dobben to snack producer Van Geloven.
Role Yuno Advisors
We assisted the seller Royaan Group in the entire limited controlled auction sale process. Our advisory services covered all aspects of the process, including contacts with potential acquirers, drafting of the information memorandum, financial modelling and budgeting, process documentation, drafting of a letter of intent, due diligence co-ordination, assisting in deal negotiations and transaction documentation. Moreover, we advised the manager of Tjendrawasih, Winus Sloot, in addition to the general sale process also with regard to his envisaged management participation.
Tjendrawasih was founded in 1977 in the city of Alkmaar, and is active in the production of oriental snacks and convenience bread snacks such as bapao, pita, pasty, lemper, risolles, gua bao and open-top bread snacks. The products of Tjendrawasih are sold in the Dutch retail channel, food service and the oriental sales channel, both under its own brands (Tjendrawasih, Mayam, Humapro en Java Food) and private labels.
