What we did

Capitalmind Investec led a competitive process with financial investors to optimize shareholding conditions and provided debt advisory services by managing the process of debt raising.

Capitalmind Investec 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.
