olo marzipan has been sold to two private investors advised by Soleal Unternehmerkapital AG

After many years of successful business, the Lohner family have sold their business olo marzipan to two private investors advised by Soleal Unternehmerkapital AG. olo marzipan will remain an independent Swiss SME and the previous, very successful and long-term strategy will be continued.

Founded in 1933, olo marzipan is a traditional company supplying the Swiss retail trade with marzipan products and figurines that are made from exquisite recipes and artfully crafted. The company uses high-quality raw materials to produce marzipan paste, baking fillings and processed almonds and nuts. In addition to a wide range of standard products, olo marzipan’s great strength is to implement tailor-made solutions for its customers, based on their specific individual needs. The production of nougat products and the unique Bernese hazelnut cake completes the company's high-quality offering.

Soleal Unternehmerkapital invests solely and exclusively the capital of its two founders, Dr. Karl Spielberger and Fabrice Nava. It buys majority stakes in SMEs in Switzerland, Germany and Austria.

Oaklins’ team in Switzerland acted as the exclusive M&A advisor to the shareholders of olo marzipan in the entire sale process, which included the preparation of marketing materials, identifying and approaching potential buyers, due diligence, parallel negotiations with potential buyers and assistance until the transaction’s completion.
