Selecta AG’s acquisition of the entire share capital of Express Vending Group Limited


Fladgate LLP advised Selecta AG, a portfolio company of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR), on its acquisition of the entire share capital of Express Vending Group Limited.

Selecta is the European market-leading supplier of coffee machines, vending machines and workplace self-service solutions.

Express Vending is a UK based supplier of self-service vending machines, based in Hertfordshire. It has developed a signature product, The Hub, a self-service micro-market which corporate customers can install in their offices.

The company registered sales of £39 million in the full year to July 2018, and Selecta says that the addition of Express’ extensive product portfolio and expertise in the field will help it consolidate its position as one of the leading vending groups in the UK.

The Fladgate team was led by corporate partners Alex Kaufmann (picture) and Jamie Hamilton.
