Hungry for more: Layenberger focuses on growth with AG Capital

21.02.24 by Konstantin Kottutz
In order to support Layenberger Nutrition Group GmbH from Rodenbach in Hesse on its growth path, we advised the company on the strategic partnership with AG Capital. Peryton supported the transaction process and advised on the realization and implementation.
As a specialist in functional nutrition, Layenberger sells numerous products with brands such as diet5, fit+feelgood, Layenberger and Mindtank at over 12,000 points of sale in Germany alone, as well as at other points of sale in Europe. In addition to organic growth, the company from the health and nutrition sector aims to further expand its business through targeted acquisitions.
To this end, Smart Food for Future GmbH was founded in Basel as a holding company, which is responsible for the strategic management of the Group and at the same time offers AG Capital the opportunity to enter as a financial partner via a minority stake. The independent investment company based in Vienna acts as an entrepreneurial partner in the buy-out and growth of medium-sized companies. Daniel Jennewein and Karl Lankmayr, Managing Directors of AG Capital, explain: “Layenberger is well established in the market with its products. These are excellent prerequisites for taking the next growth steps. We are happy to contribute our capital and our experience to the further development of the company.”
Michael Weinand, founder and main shareholder of Layenberger, also welcomes the cooperation: “I am delighted about AG Capital’s commitment. This will create the conditions for turning our ambitious vision into reality: We want to become the market leader for functional nutrition in Europe.” With the help of the growth financing and the support of AG Capital’s extensive network, nothing should stand in the way of achieving this goal. We congratulate on the successful transaction and are pleased that we were able to make our contribution here!
