[DEAL 2] Advice to the FCDE (Fonds de Consolidation et de Développement des Entreprises) on its exit from the Babcock Wanson Group.

Babcock Wanson is a leading international supplier of equipment and solutions for industrial boiler rooms. Five years after its emancipation from the CNIM group, Babcock Wanson is reorganising its shareholding. It therefore sees the FCDE (majority shareholder since 2016), which had supported this spin-off, sell its stake to Kartesia alongside the management.

[DEAL 3] Counsel to Hugo Sélignac (Chi Fou Mi Productions) in the context of the sale of a majority stake to Mediawan.

Founded in 2010 by Hugo Sélignac, the production studio Chi-Fou-Mi has had a string of successes, including the production of Antonin Baudry’s Le Chant du Loup, Quentin Dupieux’s Mandibules, Gilles Lellouche’s Le Grand Bain, Jeanne Herry’s Pupille and Cédric Jimenez’s Bac Nord, which was screened at the last Cannes Film Festival. The aim of the majority transfer to Mediawan is to accelerate the company’s growth in order to make even more ambitious films.
