Bain Capital-Led Consortium Announces Successful Close of  Tender Offer for Hitachi Metals’ Common Shares

TOKYO and BOSTON, October 26, 2022 - Bain Capital announced today that the consortium led by affiliates of Bain Capital Private Equity, LP (“Bain Capital”)  successfully closed its tender offer for the common shares of Hitachi Metals, Ltd. (Hitachi Metals”). The consortium, which also includes Japan Industrial Partners (JIP) and Japan Industrial Solutions (JIS) will provide capital, management support, and industrial and technology expertise to support Hitachi Metals’ accelerated growth trajectory.


Hitachi Metals is a global leader in the production and sale of high-quality specialty steel, functional components, magnetic materials, power electronics and wires and cables.  Bain Capital and its consortium partners are committed to supporting market leadership strategy, “Leading sustainability by high performance ”, and to capturing new growth opportunities in areas such as electric vehicles.


David Gross-Loh, Managing Director and founding member of Bain Capital’s Asia business, noted, “Hitachi Metals has decades of R&D leadership, deep global relationships with industry-leading customers, and technological superiority in each of its businesses. We are pleased to leverage our experience in the global and Japan industrials and technology sectors to support Hitachi Metals, a leading Japanese company. 


According to Thomson for Asia PE deals, this transaction is the second largest private equity investment in Japan following Kioxia - previously known as Toshiba Memory Corp. and the third largest in Asia. It also aligns with Bain Capital’s strategy of partnering with management to complete global carve-outs with high potential for transformation.


Yuji Sugimoto, Managing Director of Bain Capital in Japan, added, “We look forward to working with the Hitachi Metals management team to continue the growth of a revered company in Japan and further strengthen its business. This is a great outcome for all stakeholders. We are honored to support Hitachi Metals' continued success in sustaining Japanese industry.”
