Impress Holdings


Jamieson Corporate Finance announces its role in advising Frances Labbé, CEO of Impress Holdings BV, on the €1bn refinancing.

Impress Holdings is majority owned by Doughty Hanson & Co. Impress is a global market leader in the consumer metal packaging industry, with strong positions in all main segments in which it operates. Its key area of expertise is the production of high value-added metal packaging, made from either tinplate or aluminium, with features such as high-quality graphic designs, as well as a wide range of shapes and special convenience features, such as Easy Open ends and Easy Peel® peelable lids.

The company has 50 production facilities in 17 countries and approximately 8,500 employees.

“We have been advising the management of Impress since the business was initially put up for sale by its current owners. The eventual refinancing has provided shareholders with a significant liquidity event and was made possible by the significantly improved performance of the Group since Mr Labbé’s appointment as CEO.”

Adam Hall, Jamieson
