Edmond de Rothschild Corporate Finance has advised the shareholders of Altares on the sale of their stakes to Naxicap Partners - announced

Mergers & acquisitions - 9/13/2016

Ardian, the independent private investment company, announces the signing of an agreement between the shareholders (Ardian, Gérard Jeulin and the management team) and Naxicap Partners to sell Altares, the French data processing company.

Since the 2008 merger of BIL (Base d’Informations Légales) and D&B France, Ardian has used its extensive network and expertise to help Altares, which is based in Nanterre, become one of the leading players in B2B data processing.

With a new management team put in place by Ardian, including the appointment of Laurence Augoyard as President of the group in 2014, Altares has seen sustained growth since 2013. This growth has been mainly driven by:

  • the digitalization and diversification of its product range after launching new solutions and services with higher added-value, such as Wynbe, Adminiz, Liberfi and Powerlinx.
  • the enhancement and expansion of the partnership with Dun & Bradstreet, which most recently resulted in the acquisition of the D&B license in Maghreb, Africa.

 Edmond de Rothschild Corporate Finance also acted as financing advisor.
