Humatica advises Baird Capital on their investment in eCube Solutions

Organizational Due Diligence

Humatica, the leading private equity specialist advisor for portfolio organisational effectiveness, has advised private equity firm Baird Capital on its acquisition of a majority interest in eCube  Solutions Limited, a leading aircraft disassembly and end of life services provider based in St. Athan, Wales and Castellón, Spain.

eCube provides storage, disassembly and parts re-use and recycling services to global aircraft owners in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, including major airlines and aircraft leasing companies. Baird’s investment will support the continued growth of the UK business alongside supporting rapid growth in its new continental European facility, expanding parking availability and additional disassembly capacity. Baird will also support its expansion into North America, the world’s largest disassembly market.

Humatica was engaged by Baird to provide Organizational Due Diligence advice for this transaction.

Patrick Mina, Managing Partner of Humatica, commented:

“This transaction demonstrates Humatica’s capability in supporting private equity firms at the pre-deal stage and reinforces the importance of Organizational Due Diligence to maximise deal value and crystallise the value creation plan for this business. We are proud to have assisted Baird on this transaction and to support their growth plans for the future.”

James Benfield, Baird Capital Partner and Managing Director added:

“We are delighted to bring eCube into Baird Capital’s portfolio. Its position as a leader in its rapidly growing market makes it a great fit for our industrial portfolio. In addition, our global platform and in-country operating resources are a great match with their aspirations to expand into the US and Asian markets.”

The Humatica team was led by Patrick Mina, Managing Partner and Head of the London office, supported by Camille Edde.
