CDI Global Played Key Role in Acquisition of Product Care Manufacturer

ACON Investments and Torreal Acquire Germaine De Capuccini

Madrid, Spain (April 23, 2019) – CDI Global Spain (Emmergia CDI Global) has advised the Spanish group Germaine de Capuccini S.A.(Gdc) in the sale process to the private investors Acon Investments LLC y Torreal. Germaine de Capuccini S.A is a leading developer, producer and supplier of specialized, professional skincare and cosmetic products.

CDI Global Spain is pleased to have advised the Vidal family in the successful sale of their company. This included solving a family conflict that had lasted more than 7 years, embedded with judicial battles, that had hindered Germaine performance and growth. The biggest challenge was to deliver a consensus among 4 families (third generation) about entering into the selling process with an extremely demanding investor. Pricing was crucial, but also building a win-win structure that delivered results matching the projections during the 8-month period of due diligence.

“Our advisors from CDI Global have delivered top results for me, my father, and my cousins, obtaining an excellent price that we never expected. Key factors were understanding our needs, meticulously bridging gaps that separated our families for years, and bringing the parties together for a transaction that seemed hard to accomplish.” Raul Vidal - Former CEO of Germaine De Capuccini
