Our Principles

Cognis Acquisition
"Although Permira is a large private equity specialist, our acquisition of Cognis was quite unique for us—not only because of its large size and complexity, but because Goldman Sachs was working with us as an advisor, as a co-investor and as a lead arranger on senior secured debt facilities that totaled €1.6 billion. Once the bidding got under way, Goldman Sachs' understanding of the chemicals industry, as well as its excellent reputation and outstanding relationships in Germany, really helped differentiate our team from the competition. The Goldman Sachs professionals worked across their own organization and with our people seamlessly. Together we were able to demonstrate to the market that good solutions can be generated even under the most challenging conditions."
