DPA MicrophonesRCF Group has struck a definitive agreement for the acquisition of DPA Microphones A/S (DPA) from The Riverside Company.

With headquarters in Italy and branches in the US and Europe, the RCF Group operates under the companies RCF, AEB Industriale (dB Technologies) and EAW, and generates more than 80 per cent of its revenues outside of Italy in 120 countries. In 2017, Palladio Holding and Amundi Private Equity Funds invested in the Group with a minority stake in order to support and enhance the group in its ambitious growth plans. Following the September 2018 acquisition of EAW, the acquisition of DPA represents a second important milestone on RCF Group’s growth.

‘Since my early days I have been fascinated by the world of microphones,’ says RCF Group CEO, Arturo Vicari. ‘Our portfolio already represents excellence in pro audio and we are very proud to add to our roster DPA – a company that also represents excellence in the microphone industry. We can now offer the complete audio chain, from microphones to speakers for the satisfaction of professionals around the world.’

‘We have come a long way during the past few years,’ adds DPA CEO, Kalle Hvidt Nielsen. ‘Share of sales coming from new products is up from less than five per cent to more than 40 per cent, and all major areas in the business have been professionalised and streamlined. Now we look forward to a bright future under new ownership in a Group with an uncompromising quality oriented approach to the pro audio business – just like ours.’

Chiomenti provided legal assistance on the transaction for RCF Group, which was also assisted by New Deal Advisors for financial due diligence and by Deloitte for tax and legal due diligence.
