What we did
Capitalmind led a competitive process with financial investors to optimize shareholding conditions and provided debt advisory services by managing the process of debt raising.
Capitalmind actively supported Groupe Sylpa during all the process: valuation guidance; preparation of the marketing documentation and Business Plan modelling; selection of relevant PEs; execution support (Due Diligence, site visits, meetings, Q&As, etc.); negotiation with PEs and banks.
The transaction has been well prepared with an in-depth analysis of the market, a highly structured and selective process which resulted in a transaction fairly optimized and completed within 15 weeks.
This deal is the third advised by Capitalmind on behalf of Groupe Sylpa since 2006.
