Harris Williams & Co. Advises Gamo Outdoor, S.L. In Its Sale To Bruckmann, Rosser, Sherrill & Co.

Harris Williams & Co., a preeminent middle market investment bank focused on the advisory needs of clients worldwide, announces the sale of Gamo Outdoor, S.L. (Gamo), a Barcelona-based manufacturer of premium airguns, to Bruckmann, Rosser, Sherrill & Co. (BRS). Gamo was a portfolio company of MCH Private Equity, S.L. (MCH). Harris Williams & Co. acted as an advisor for Gamo management and shareholders. The transaction closed on August 2, 2013 and was led by Thierry Monjauze from Harris Williams & Co.’s London office and Eric Logue from the firm’s Richmond office.

“Gamo is the fourth cross-border transaction Harris Williams & Co. has executed in the last six months and it demonstrates the increased interest we are seeing for cross-border acquisitions, especially by US-based middle market private equity funds,” said Thierry Monjauze, a managing director at Harris Williams & Co. “We expect this trend to continue in the coming years.”

"We enjoyed working with the management of Gamo and MCH, who have built a market leader with best-in-class products and a culture of innovation," added Eric Logue, a vice president at Harris Williams & Co. "BRS will be a great partner and we look forward to watching Gamo's continued success as it pursues its global growth opportunities," added Thierry Monjauze.

Headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, Gamo is a leading provider of premium airguns, pellets and related accessories to the outdoor enthusiast market. Gamo is globally-recognized for quality, craftsmanship and innovation and sells its products in more than 50 countries.

Established in 1998 and headquartered in Madrid, Spain, MCH is a private equity firm that advises MCH Iberian Capital Fund I, II and III, with total funds under management of more than €500 million. MCH is one of the five largest independent private equity groups in Spain.
