Baker McKenzie has advised AGIC Capital on its acquisition of a majority stake in Grafotronic and its subsidiaries. Setterwalls advised Grafotronic's shareholders.

Grafotronic produces roll-to-roll automated manufacturing solutions for the digital label printing and electric vehicle battery markets. Its main factory is located in Warsaw. AGIC is a European-Asian fund focused on investments in industrial and healthcare technology companies. The fund has more than USD 2.2 billion of assets under management.

According to a company press statement, "AGIC was attracted to Grafotronic’s positioning in resilient and high-growth markets, modular product concept, strong innovation capabilities including automation and product/services connectivity, asset-light business model, dedicated and dynamic management team, and attractive financial profile. Partnering with the management team, AGIC will support Grafotronic’s continued international growth both in the digital finishing and EV battery segments, in the existing core European markets, the US, and Asia."

"The acquisition of Grafotronic exemplifies AGIC’s investment strategy," said AGIC Director & Head of UK Ben Mitchell, "to partner with the management teams of outstanding European SMEs which have significant growth potential and to provide proactive, hands-on support to realize that potential."
