Deal summary

Catalyst Corporate Finance has advised Vision Capital and management shareholders on the sale of Inutec Group to Tradebe.

Inutec is a leading provider of analytical, technical development, radioactive waste processing and disposal services for Low Level and Intermediate Level Waste. The Company has customers in the decommissioning, civil and defence nuclear markets. Inutec operates on a nuclear licensed site, and has wide authorisations which give it a rare capability in the UK radioactive waste market. It was acquired by Vision Capital in 2006 as part of a portfolio of assets sold by AEA Technology plc, formerly the UK Atomic Energy Authority.

Tradebe is one of the leading companies in industrial waste management in Spain, the USA and the UK, with further subsidiaries in France and Turkey. In 2012 Tradebe’s sales in the environmental sector were in the order of 350 million Euros, across Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. Tradebe employs over 1900 people worldwide spread across more than 60 treatment plants globally.

What difference did we make?

Catalyst was appointed to sell the business on the basis of its previous experience of marketing specialist waste facilities.

We identified a focused shortlist of multinational strategic potential acquirers and marketed the business through a tailored process that ensured the potential buyers were fully aware of the complex historical and future nuclear issues involved.

We prepared the business for due diligence and negotiated a complex deal structure which took into account the range of stakeholders involved with the business. Catalyst then project managed the deal to a successful completion.
