Stéphane Carcenac:We serve mainly small and medium-sized companies generating revenue of between €5 million and €150 million. For these companies, we cover all stages of their financial transactions. We identify the most suitable partners, then let our client make the choice and set up the negotiations. Our mission consists in enabling them to carry out their projects with the appropriate people by ensuring they are satisfied with the value of their professional assets in the short term, as well as over the long term, by making sure they transfer the capital of their company to a buyer or investor who shares their values, preserves the company, and protects their employees.
