Salini Immobilier’s First LBO
Alerion Avocats advised Salini Immobilier on the firm’s first leveraged buyout (LBO).
Salini is a family-owned firm with a strong presence in various slices of the real estate market. The firm is best known for its expertise in the construction of business parks, turnkey building renovation and contractor, promotion and development matters. Salini posted a turnover of €56.8 million in 2021 for an EBITDA of €4.1 million.
The LBO was supported by Invest Corporate Finance as corporate financial advisors and also by Trocadero Capital Partners as investors. The operation also modified Salini’s internal governance, with former deputy managing director Serge de Oliveira now heading up the company. The transition was supported by the Salini family, who heavily reinvested.
Alerion advised Salini on the matter with a team led by managing partner Pierre-Olivier Brouard alongside partner Philippe Pescayre and counsels Karine Khau-Castelle and Julien Lebel.
