Case study

The Capitalmind Investec teams pay particular attention to the preparation of transactions, devoting time to the necessary education of stakeholders, as Yannick Gueho, CEO of Sopral, a subsidiary of the Avril group specialising in the formulation, production and marketing of pet food, reminds us when he joined forces with an investment fund.

Capitalmind Investec assisted Avril Group throughout the sell-side process: pre-sounding appetite for the asset in the market, monitoring of the financial VDD, approach of interested acquirers, creation of the marketing documentation, identification of carve out issues, management of the due diligence, and assistance in negotiating the deal and the legal documentation.

This sale is the 14th transaction advised by Capitalmind Investec for the Avril Group. We are very proud to have been by their side since 2011.

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 projects in France and abroad

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.
