About the project

Carstensen Import Export Handelsgesellschaft mbH, a subsidiary of Eurasia, was a trusted supplier of Stylex Schreibwaren GmbH for many years. Stylex is a leading supplier of office supplies in the German market but faced the problem that several shareholders did not have a successor. Eurasia was given the chance to acquire a stake from the company and thus to pursue their vertical business expansion. As part of Eurasia’s long-term buy-and-build strategy, EUROCON was asked to approach Stylex and to execute the acquisition.


  • Advisor buy-and-build strategy
  • Development of takeover concept and alternative pricing models
  • Coordination of due diligence and negotiations


The Stylex shareholder structure was complex and the ideas of the shareholders regarding their exit were very different. We worked out individual and multi-stage models for the acquisition of shares over a total period of seven years.

Thanks to EUROCON, we were able to successfully close the deal in a trustful way. This trust has developed into friendship.
