STAR group takes control of V.Group for $150m

STAR will take control of V.Group with the transaction

Posted on June 19, 2024

Construction engineering group Ackermans & Van Haaren (AvH) has partnered with STAR Capital to acquire V.Group.

The Belgian group will take 33% of V.Group, a ship management and marine support service provider, from Advent International in exchange for $150m.

STAR did not disclose its agreement with Advent for the remainder of the transaction.

AvH has a substantial portfolio of companies, across a multitude of sectors, but marine engineering and construction is a key area of its business.

“The investment fits well with our criteria to invest in global market leaders with long-term growth potential, operating in markets with clear entry barriers (driven by the importance of scale and global reach) and led by strong management teams,” said Piet Dejonghe, co-CEO of AvH.
