Buyout

 

Our Buyout team works in partnership with managers and entrepreneurs, helping medium-sized companies to realize their growth ambitions. We support companies by providing the additional financial and human resources they need to accelerate development, helping them to carry out acquisitions and giving them access to our international network.

We invest on behalf of Eurazeo and our partner investors, in companies that have solid fundamentals, established positions in promising markets, real growth potential and ambitious management teams.

We favor the life sciences, tech, financial services and consumer goods sectors, in which we have proven, well-known expertise. Our team identifies the best investment opportunities in those sectors and provides unrivaled strategic and operational support to our portfolio companies.

We work alongside managers, helping our investees to strengthen and grow in three main ways: through international expansion, digital transformation and acquisitions.

We bring them the financial, strategic and human resources they need. This includes an effective on-the-ground presence in four continents – giving them easier access to new markets, particularly in China – along with a dedicated team of digital experts skilled in optimizing operational performance. Our buyout teams are also backed up by Eurazeo’s corporate departments and an international network of more than 120 high-level experts.

We help French SMEs expand internationally, to turn them into mid-cap companies. We maintain almost daily contact with them, helping them to set up the necessary structures, introduce new processes and raise non-financial challenges, all of this playing an important part in securing their long-term future.
