Case study

The support provided by Capitalmind Investec’s teams is characterised by a tailor-made approach, based on the sharing of know-how, which is conducive to building lasting client relationships, as Xavier Dorchies, Strategy Director of the Avril Group, a major industrial player in the vegetable oil and protein sectors in France, explains in this video concerning Capitalmind Investec’s role on the sale of Theseo to Lanxess.

Capitalmind Investec has assisted Groupe Avril all along the sale process of Theseo: advising transaction strategy, defining deal tactics, qualifying buyers, identifying the best partner for the business, and organizing a competitive bid up to closing.

This deal illustrates Capitalmind Investec’s know-how in supporting companies in their growth project over the long-term: this is our 17th transaction for Avril group and our 4th for its subsidiary Theseo.

For over 20 years, we have been advising the senior management and strategy and M&A teams of major groups on the design, preparation and management of divestments of non-strategic assets and external growth transactions:

  • Project for the disposal of non-strategic activities and/or subsidiaries / carve-out
  • Where appropriate, pre-sale feasibility study of non-strategic activities to define the key success factors of a potential operation
  • Acquisition in France and abroad
