What we did

Capitalmind Investec actively supported Guyot Environnement during all the financing process: search for potential investors, preparation of marketing documentation, modeling of the Business Plan hand-in-hand with the management, organization of management presentations and site visits, negotiations with institutional and private investors, preparation of valuation guidance, execution support, mapping out negotiation arguments and negotiation of legal documentation.

Capitalmind Investec played a key role in explaining and negotiating the deal structure to shareholders unfamiliar to this environment.
