ATOUT CAPITAL advised TECHNILINE (listed on Alternext) for the carrying out of the acquisition of GROUPE UNIKA (listed on the Free Market) to create WE.CONNECT. The historical shareholders of GROUPE UNIKA acquired control of WE.CONNECT, subsequently changing its governance. This transaction enabled GROUPE UNIKA shareholders access to the regulated market Alternext.
