Flint Group launches sale of XSYS division to Lone Star affiliate
Tuesday, 14 September, 2021, 15 : 00 PM [IST]
Flint Group has signed a definitive agreement to sell its XSYS division, which specialises in the development and supply of printing plates, sleeves and adapters, and pre-press equipment to the packaging industry, to an affiliate of Lone Star Funds, a global private equity firm. The transaction remains subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.

Upon closing, the XSYS management team will be led by Antoine Fady as chief executive officer, Dagmar Schmidt as chief operating officer, and Martin Sauer as chief financial officer. Steve Dryden will succeed Fady as CEO of the Flint Group.

“The carve-out we are announcing today represents the next logical step for Flint Group and XSYS. It will further enable the XSYS business to advance as a standalone, best in class, full solutions provider to the flexographic and letterpress pre-press industries, with tailor-made solutions developed for each market segment and customer type. We look forward to working with Lone Star, whose experience and track record will be of great benefit as we move XSYS forward in this next phase,” said Fady.

“With this transaction, we will create two dedicated management teams with increased strategic and operational focus. Flint Group becomes positioned to further invest in the structurally growing segments of paper and board, flexible packaging and labels, serviced with our conventional and digital printing consumables. This successful strategy – centred around product and service innovation -- enables Flint to grow with customers that value our colour proposition by helping them to standardise and reduce their costs,” said Dryden.

Donald Quintin, president, Lone Star Opportunity Fund, said, “We look forward to working with XSYS, a leading global provider of printing solutions. We recognise not only the resilience of the XSYS business and the diversity of its offerings but its growth prospects as well. We appreciate the value that XSYS provides its many customers, and have great confidence in the management team’s commitment to realising XSYS’s potential in the years ahead.”
