CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre advised the lenders on the financing of the primary LBO by the InCA group, a specialist in the construction of detached homes.
Supported by GSO Capital (the Crédit Agricole Aquitaine fund) and Bpifrance, Omnes Capital completed the spin-off of the Nouvelle Aquitaine brands by the Geoxia group, owned by LBO France (Maisons Clairlande, Les Demeures de la Côte d’Argent, Rouquié Constructions), in the form of a primary LBO.
Omnes Capital, via its small cap funds (LCL Expansion 2 and LCL PME Expansion 2), took a majority stake in the new holding company for the three brands, InCa (Innovation Construction pour l’Avenir), alongside the management.
InCa is a regional leader in the construction of private detached homes, with three strong brands in Nouvelle-Aquitaine: Maisons Clairlande, Les Demeures de la Côte d’Argent and Rouquié Constructions. The InCA group has a large target market, from first-time buyers to high-end customers.
The bank financing for the transaction was arranged by Caisse Régionale de Crédit Agricole Mutuel d'Aquitaine and Crédit Lyonnais.
For this transaction, the CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre team advising the lenders comprised Benjamin Guilleminot (associate counsel) and Benoît Fournier on financing aspects.
Omnes Capital was advised by Olivier Abergel, Gaëlle Quillivic, Nathalie Jacquart, Julien Carrascosa, Olivier Legrand and Yohan Jabbour Gédéon from the firm LL Berg.
