EURAZEO ACUERDA LA COMPRA DEL 25% DE MCH.
Eurazeo will acquire a 25% minority stake in MCH and will also participate as a limited partner into MCH’s fifth fund vintage (“MCH V”) which is expected to be launched in the coming months. The total investment of Eurazeo in MCH’s management company as well as MCH V’s commitment is approximately €100m. This partnership is a new step towards Eurazeo’s long-term ambition to grow its international network.
Founded in 1998, MCH is a leading Iberian private equity firm based in Madrid. With almost €1 billion of assets under management, 34 investments made since inception and more than 20 years of experience in the industry, MCH benefits from one of the longest standing and most comprehensive track-records in Southern Europe. The MCH Team, consisting of 20 dedicated investment professionals, is led by four Senior Partners: Jaime Hernández Soto, José María Muñoz, Andrés Peláez and Ramón Núñez.
The strong alignment between Eurazeo PME, the mid-cap investment strategy of Eurazeo, and MCH, combined with the complementarities across their respective local networks of relationships will materially enhance the value created for portfolio companies, shareholders and limited partners. MCH will have access to Eurazeo’s international networks as well as its digital and ESG value creation teams.
The two firms will remain independent, with investment teams focused on their respective funds and domestic markets. Completion is subject to customary Spanish regulatory approval.
Olivier Millet, Member of the Executive Board of Eurazeo and Chairman of the Executive Board of Eurazeo PME, said: “This strategic alliance with MCH fits perfectly with Eurazeo PME’s strategy to become a leading pan-European player in the mid-market. This partnership will continue to strengthen Eurazeo’s network across its asset classes and the geographic expansion of our Group.“
Frans Tieleman, Head of Eurazeo Development, added: “Widely recognized as a reference in the Spanish mid-market, MCH has consistently demonstrated outstanding performance. We are very pleased to partner with MCH’s management team during their next phase of development starting with the upcoming MCH V fundraise.”
Jaime Hernandez Soto and José María Muñoz, Founding Partners of MCH, commented: “Our shared values and philosophy will provide a strong basis for the successes to come for this
partnership. This is a key step in MCH development as we continue to grow, with major milestones for the firm in the coming months. We are thrilled to partner up with Eurazeo, which will reinforce both firms’ international reach, influence and capabilities. We are convinced that our two teams, while still operating independently, will provide valuable experience and skill sets to each other to gradually help to build a world-class pan-European platform.”
