de Visscher & Co.
Assists Client in Constructive Change of Ownership

We 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.
