equity is a form of investment by which an investor devotes part of his or her equity
or capital under management to the development or buyout a company (or
division) needing growth, transmission, adjustment, expansion, new product development or restructuring
of its operations, management or ownership.
In return for the
investment risk and the long-term immobilisation of the capital, the return expected on the invested
capital is generally higher than the one on the stock market, taking into account
the non-liquidity of this investment for often several years. The investor does not just invest but usually accompanies
the company in the portfolio with practical advice to accelerate its
development and optimise its management.
equity is the injection of funds into a company and the entry of investment
fund into the capital of companies that need equity. In some cases, there is no
capital injection but buyback of the shares held by the historical
shareholders. It also happens that the investment is made in the form of
convertible bonds and derivatives (options, warrants of new shares in
that make up a portfolio of equity investments in private equity transactions are
holding companies or specialised investment funds private or public, of
industrial or financial origin (institutional with notably pension funds, insurers
and banks), or wealthy and experienced individuals (business angels or angel
investors). Their participation can be unilateral or cross. The private
equity operations are carried out by purchasing existing securities from former
shareholders, or by providing new funds to the company, in the form of
subscription for securities newly issued by it (capital increase).
operations often rely on leverage, favoring debt financing (bank loan).
equity comes in many forms:
capital to finance entrepreneurial projects that are still in the research and
Venture capital to finance the start-up of new businesses;
capital to finance the development of the company;
Buyout or LBO intended to accompany the transmission or the transfer of the
to help the recovery of a company in difficulty;
Mezzanine capital in debt and equity financing;
wealth funds that allow a state to invest excess cash from a specific activity.
We raise funds and manage the capital to yield favourable returns for our shareholder clients under an investment horizon between 4 and 7 years at which
time we will look to sell or exit their stake either on the stock
market, to a corporate buyer or to another investor.
