Waterland Private Equity sells Optisport
7 May 2012

 
Lexence advised Waterland Private Equity during the sale of Optisport B.V. to the management and RaPar (Rabo Participaties).
 
Optisport is the Netherlands’ biggest risk-bearing operator in sports and leisure, with more than 150 sports facilities in about 60 municipalities in the country. With the increasing need of municipalities to socially safeguard their sports infrastructure but to manage it more commercially, Optisport expects further growth in the number of operators in the years ahead. RaPar is one of the specialized divisions of Rabo Private Equity and participates in healthy Dutch companies to facilitate further growth while also acquiring a minority interest.
