Global Investment Firm Completes Acquisition of Recycling and Waste Business

In the beginning of September, Atar Capital has completed the acquisition of Recycling and Waste Solutions (RWS), a division of the HAVI Group. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“RWS was launched in 2012 with the goal of providing true ‘closed loop’ solutions and complementing HAVI’s global supply chain offerings,” the buyer informed. “Based in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, RWS develops and manages recycling, waste and sustainability programs for regional and multi-national companies throughout North America.” As reported, BNP Paribas acted as the exclusive advisor to HAVI on the sale, and Dykema Gossett acted as outside legal counsel to Atar Capital.
