Bell Flavors & Fragrances acquires Sillage Aromatique

Trevor Rahill, President of Focus International congratulates Mr. Hong Oan Khoe, President of Nardev Chemie Pte, Ltd, and Mr. Jim Heinz, CEO of Bell Flavors & Fragrances on the successful closing of this very significant transaction to acquire the fragrance division of Nardev Chemie, based out of Singapore. This is one of very few acquisitions that have been achieved in South East Asia in the F&F industry and will greatly strengthen Bell’s position in South East Asia while allowing Sillage to take the next steps to significant growth backed by this global family company.

Trevor as the exclusive buy side advisor for Bell, led the efforts in identifying suitable targets and initiating discussions right through to negotiations and the close.

Focus International is a specialist advisory company that provides services and resources to small to mid size companies in the Flavor & Fragrance and Specialty Ingredients industries. Our industry experts help our clients to solve critical operating problems or execute on strategic initiatives where they don’t currently have the necessary in house resources.

M&A is a key area of expertise at Focus International and we have worked on a number of buy side assignments for strategic players as well as for smaller Private Equity Companies. In addition we also represent a number of small family owned companies where the owners are looking to sell and we work with them to not only find buyers but also to help them prepare their business for sale.

If you are looking for growth through acquisition or are considering selling your business then I would be very happy to speak  with you. We understand the need for confidentiality so rest assured that strict confidentiality will always be maintained.
