SiegCo acquires Valtech

Siegco, holding company financed by Verlinvest funds, makes €39 million takeover bid for Valtech

SiegCo is a Belgian company co-held by Verlinvest, Sebastian Lombardo and Laurent Schwarz, bringing together the credit and the financial strength of an industrial holding company with the top management experience and the vision of two seasoned entrepreneurs in the IT/Internet field.

SiegCo aimed to take control of Valtech, the leading player in e-business and agile technologies. It offers to all the shareholders to contribute their shares against 0,44 euros per share (overbid).

Valtech benefits from many assets (highly skilled consultants, diversified large accounts portfolio, strong brand) which can be leveraged thanks to a stable and reliable major shareholder having an ambitious company project and financial strength. The industrial ambition driven by SiegCo is to bring Valtech as European leader in digital optimization.

Financière Cambon was hired very early in the process to define the transaction structure and advise SiegCo on the strategy to launch the tender offer.
