GROWTH CAPITAL – Duteil Avocats (David Merlet, Benoît Lespinasse, Caroline Boisnard) advised CM-CIC Investissement SCR in relation with a minority investment in Montaner-Pietrini Boissons Group.
Since its creation in 2008, the Montaner-Pietrini Boissons Group has significantly expanded through organic growth and acquisitions (17 transactions performed) and has become in 10 years the undisputed independent leader of the French beverage distribution in the CHR (cafes, hotels and restaurants) segment with an expected turnover of more than €170m for 2018.
CM-CIC Investissement SCR’s contribution and the banking pool’s contributions were carried out in the form of capital increase and banking debt up to €57m.
The banking pool is directed by two entities of the BPCE Group, Caisse d’Epargne CEPAC and Banque Populaire Méditerranée. BNP Paribas and CIC are also involved.
This transaction will strengthen the resources of the Montaner-Pietrini Boissons Group within a proactive acquisition strategy.
