Case study

On the eve of Tournaire’s 190th anniversary, the family shareholders appointed Capitalmind Investec to assist them in shaping the best option to provide the Group with additional resources to seize growth opportunities available to the Group, in connection with the Group’s handover. Thanks to a strategic and financial partnership with Motion Equity Partners in September 2022, the family shareholders keep a significant shareholding in the Group’s capital, ensuring continuity for the Group.
