Verticalization strategy: Brazilian tissue producer bought by global cellulose giant

Deal Flash

The shareholders of OL Papéis have sold the company to Bracell, an RGE Group company.

OL Papéis is one of the largest producers of tissues and diapers in Brazil and de the second largest in the Northeast region. The company is headquartered in Feira de Santana, Bahia, and operates three state-of-the-art plants, two in Bahia and one in Pernambuco. OL Papéis’ annual paper production capacity is 50.4 thousand tons.

The difficult decision to sell the company was shared with the professional and dedicated team at Oaklins Fortezza Partners. We felt that on our side of the table we not only had an advisor but also a fourth shareholder, willing to maximize the company’s valuation and defend our positions. We highly recommend Oaklins Fortezza to business owners who are thinking of starting an M&A process. VALDECIR BECHEL, SHAREHOLDER, OL PAPÉIS, BRAZIL
