GÖRG advises Oakley Capital on an acquisition financing for an investment in Vice Golf
GÖRG Partnerschaft von Rechtsanwälten mbB has advised Oakley Capital on the raising of an acquisition financing for an investment in Vice Sporting Goods GmbH (“Vice Golf”), a sporting goods manufacturer based in Munich. The financing was provided by Apera Asset Management.
Since its founding in 2012, Vice Golf has become one of the leading digitally native golf brands by offering premium golf balls at significantly lower price points than comparable products through its direct-to-consumer (DTC) business model and social media marketing. In addition to golf balls, the company also sells accessories such as caps and gloves to golfers of all ages and skill levels across the US and Europe.
Oakley Capital, a pan-European private equity investor, focuses primarily on ambitious European companies in the sectors of technology, consumer and education. With the help of Oakley's investment, Vice Golf will further accelerate its growth, product diversification strategy and internationalisation.
A GÖRG team led by experienced Cologne partner Dr Thomas Lange successfully assisted Oakley Capital with the acquisition financing.
