are pleased to announce that in December 2006 our team assisted
the owners of Multiplier Inc. in a constructive change of ownership
to Uniross, a global leader in the manufacturing and marketing of
batteries and charging systems.
Strategic Liquidity Solutions
Multiplier Industries based in Mt. Kisco, NY and its subsidiary
Multiplier Ltd. in the UK are the world’s leaders in replacement
batteries for the two-way radio market. Just like many family-owned
companies, Multiplier is increasingly facing some new opportunities
and challenges in the globalization of the market place for batteries.
When the shareholders of Multiplier Industries Corp. therefore decided
to monetize the 20 years of business value they had created and
find a suitable partner for their business, they called upon de
Visscher & Co for advice. After approaching a very select group
of domestic and international manufacturers and distributors of
replacement batteries and accessories, de Visscher & Co. and
the owners of Multiplier selected Uniross of France as the partner
to provide the most attractive financial package to the shareholders
and to put the company and its employees in the hands of a responsible
and growth–oriented global leader.
