CHICAGO, Jan. 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln International, ("Lincoln"), a leading global mid-market investment bank, is pleased to announce that Monomoy Capital Partners ("Monomoy") has sold Katun Corporation ("Katun" or the "Company") to a Taiwanese buyer, General Plastic Industrial Co., Ltd. ("GPI"). The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Katun is one of the world's leading providers of OEM-compatible imaging supplies, toner, photoreceptors and parts for copiers, printers and other equipment for the imaging industry.
