Public To Private
A Public to Private (P to P) transaction entails acquiring a significant block of actions of a listed company, making a takeover bid and then de-listing the company after a minority squeeze-out.
Going private can be the ideal solution for small-cap companies who have lost visibility on the stock markets as these have become Europe-wide, leading to decreased trading of their shares. Often in such a case, remaining listed becomes a handicap for growth. A P to P enables these companies to regain a suitable valuation, liquidity for their shareholders and capital for their development projects.
AtriA has gained true expertise in P to P transactions having successfully taken private VIADOM (formerly PHILIPPE BOSC), home hairdressing, FPEE, French co-leader of PVC and aluminium windows sold through their Art and FenÍtres and Ouvertureís distribution networks and PARCOURS, the leading independent player in long-term car rentals. These companies, now delisted, are implementing their development projects with the active support of AtriA Capital Partenaires.
