ATOUT CAPITAL advised AIRWELL for a double operation to strengthen its long-term resources.
The Group raised €1.5m in equity from two Norwegian family offices, which took a position exceeding 10% of the capital. In addition, a €5m bond issue (in fine) with a maturity of over 5 years was raised from the France Economie Réelle fund managed by DELTA AM.
These financial resources will enable the Group to arbitrate its financing by reducing its short-term exposure, to accelerate its organic growth (to finance of WCR) and to carry out targeted acquisitions (geographical expansion through the acquisition of local distributors).
