Last year, MEDIANE’s managers called on PAX Corporate Finance to organise the transfer of the company in the context of a future retirement. A first partial sale operation in the form of an LBO was carried out in 2008 with the investment fund NAXICAP PARTNERS.
In order to maximise the chances of success of the operation and the valuation of the company, PAX Corporate Finance conducted a dual sale process with both industrial buyers and investment funds.
The managers finally opted for a second LBO by integrating a new manager associated with two investment funds; Initiative & Finance and Viveris. One of the founders will provide the transition for a period of 18 months.
The structuring of this transaction has enabled the company to reach the level of value expected by the sellers while allowing it to continue its development with serenity.
