BBH advises DSD on sale to Circular Resources

The sale of DSD-Duales System Holding GmbH & Co. KG was completed on 10/08/2022. As a result, the company Der Grüne Punkt (“Green Dot”) also changes hands.

The DSD group operates in the circular economy with a focus on the disposal of packaging of private final consumers through the licensing of sales packaging which is organised by its subsidiary Der Grüne Punkt – Duales System Deutschland GmbH (DSD). Through its subsidiaries, the DSD group is also active in the processing of plastic waste. DSD was sold to the Circular Resources group, a company active in the chemical recycling of plastics. With this acquisition, Circular Resources gains for the first time an operational foothold in the German recycling market.

“We are pleased that we could help our client achieve its goal of finding a new home for Der Grüne Punkt,” comments Wolfram von Blumenthal, partner at BBH Munich, who was in charge of the M&A/corporate-related part of the project. “Gaining Circular Resources as a new partner and expanding DSD group’s business activities to include chemical recycling will open up exciting opportunities for the businesses to reposition themselves in the market,” adds partner Prof. Dr. Ines Zenke, who has been advising the DSD group for many years and, together with her colleagues, was also involved in this project from the very beginning.
