Clearwater International advises the founders of Cogepart, Omnes Capital and A Plus Finance on a minority sale to Bpifrance, together with Amundi Private Equity Funds and Sofipaca
Clearwater International has advised the shareholders of Cogepart Group (Cogepart) on the restructuring of its capital. Bpifrance, together with Amundi Private Equity Funds (PEF) and Sofipaca, replace Omnes Capital and A Plus Finance as minority shareholders in Cogepart, alongside Jérôme Dor, the majority shareholder who has been managing the Group since its creation, and its management team.
Founded in 1986, Cogepart is a French leading player in the booming last mile delivery market. Cogepart has developed unique expertise in the very demanding automotive spare parts delivery segment and is a key partner for food supermarkets, household equipment and appliances retailers as well as major e-commerce companies. The company, operating in both urban and rural areas, employs more than 1,900 people, and generates a total revenue of €120m.
This investment will help Cogepart to support its ambitious growth plan, both in France and abroad, undertaken by its Chairman, Jérôme Dor.
