Cambon Partners provides growth companies with comprehensive advisory services for Mergers & Acquisitions and Corporate Finance, including:

  • Sellout to a strategic buyer
  • Majority and minority stake sales to LBO and growth equity funds
  • Venture and growth capital funding
  • Debt refinancing and raising of bank of bond financing
  • Acquisitions

Cambon Partners intervenes, at all stages of the company's lifecycle : Venture, Growth capital, LBO, M&A. As a multi-sector specialist, we have an in-depth understanding of our clients’ eco-systems which guarantees relevant contributions right from the start, by focusing on the key information, getting the right counterparties involved, and selecting the most appropriate valuation benchmarks.  

This approach, which combines financial engineering with sector expertise, enables us to determine the feasibility of a project at the earliest possible stage. Being selective on the missions we accept is a key concern for us : convince a client that the market conditions are not optimal to fulfil his objectives, or on the contrary that the timing is right, is an approach which inspires trust and maximize the chances for a successful transaction.

The high and steadily growing number of deals we have executed validates the relevance of our positioning and comforts our ambition to establish Cambon Partners as the reference M&A house for growth companies in France.

“Cambon's team accompanied us in structuring of our latest round of financing. This represents our first operation with an advisor and we appreciated the difference! A well-honed process, high added-value inputs to our scale strategy, and seamless support from end to end from a complementary, professional and incredibly energetic team. Congratulations and thank you!”

Arthur Saint-Père, CEO & founder of Dolead

“Cambon played a vital role in completing this operation. In light of the group's performance, a sponsorless LBO was the most suitable deal structure, allowing us to serve the shareholders' interests while favouring attractive financial conditions for this fast-growing, family-run structure”

David Tuchbant - Fondateur d'Identicar - 2016

“Guillaume has advised us on several occasions and is able to understand our approach and fully appreciate our potential. In a sometimes complex negotiation, we appreciated his attentive listening skills and his responsiveness in finding an agreement that best serves our interests.”

QWANT

“We are delighted to have been advised by Cambon Partners, who were able to understand our entrepreneurial issues and to structure an operation giving us the means to achieve our ambitions in Europe. We are grateful for the quality of the advice and the involvement on this project.”

David Vanden Born - Directeur général de Onepark

“The team's track record and their degree of professionalism instantly gained our trust. I particularly appreciated their discreet but reassuring presence and their efficiency.”

Meyer Azogui, president of Cyrus Conseil

“Cambon Partners advised us during our first transaction in 2013, when MBO Partners entered Travelsoft’s capital, and then again in 2016 when we completed a second LBO with EDRIP, BPO and A Plus Finance. Orchestra’s performance allows us to envisage an even stronger position in Europe. Thank you to the team, who played an instrumental role in identifying targets and intermediation.”

Christian Sabbagh - Président de Travelsoft

“This new partnership with Talan is sure to present new opportunities for both our team and our clients. Thanks to Cambon for playing a key intermediary role.”

Lionel Frizon, Président d'EXL Group - 2015

“Cambon’s degree of commitment, tenacity and abnegation is simply outstanding. They were able to find solutions when the situation was at a standstill and are responsible for bringing this deal to fruition.”

Sensio

“We would like to congratulate Guillaume and his team for his excellent execution: we have benefited from very high-end service, thanks to which we were able to find the fund most adapted to our philosophy and our plans for development.”

ProDirect

“Sharing the same values of excellence, precision and transparency, we particularly appreciated the ability of Cambon to adapt to the specific environment of financing innovation and R&D tax credit.”

Laurent Scheinfeld - Directeur Associé de Subventium - 2010

“From the off, Cambon set itself apart with its in depth knowledge of the IT sector, its key players (corporates and investment funds), and adequate valuation levels. The team was able to construct different exit strategies, quickly completing the preferential transfer process without a hitch.”

LBO France - Arthur Bernardin, Partner - 2016

“Guillaume quickly recognised the stakes at hand and our positioning. He was able to handle the situation insightfully and intelligently while maintaining the steady rhythm of the operation. It is all of these elements which allowed us to succesfully merge with NetBooster.”

Artefact

“Cambon advised us in a € 5M round of financing with CM CIC Capital Privé and XAnge, which was no mean feat given the highly competitive nature of the chauffeured transport market. I'd like to thank Guillaume for his uncompromising engagement which took us through to the end of the process.”

Yan Hascoet - Cofondateur Chauffeur-Privé - 2014

“Cambon allowed us to choose the best financial partners to support the development of Splio while meeting the aspirations of its management and shareholders. They matched our vision and helped us to highlight Splio's strengths, expertise and unique strategy.”

Splio

“The standard of service, selection and day-to-day engagement in the project was faultless from start to finish. Bravo.”
