CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre advised the Melkonian family on the capital reorganization of the Melkonian Group, a leading equipment manufacturer for mining and underground works. This reorganization took the form of an LBO, with three new financial investors taking stakes (Bpifrance Investissement, Amundi Private Equity Funds and Sofipaca).
This deal allows the Melkonian family to take its holding to 82% and to purchase the stake of Omnes Capital.
The CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre team comprised Alexandre Delhaye and Solenne Gilles for Corporate/M&A elements, Olivier de Saint Chaffray (Partner) and Thomas Laumière for tax issues, and Grégory Benteux (Partner) and Alexandre Bordenave for financing aspects.
The financial investors were advised by the law firm Pinot de Villechenon & Associés (Gilles Roux and Martin Kyuchukov-Roglev).
