LAMY LEXEL assists the family-owned group Gérard Perrier Industrie in the reorganisation of its capital

23 December 2020 // The family-owned group Gérard Perrier Industrie (GPI, listed on Euronext Paris) reorganises its capital through a financial transaction enabling the Perrier family to strengthen its majority control, exercised via its holding company Amperra. LAMY LEXEL's lawyers advised the Group and its managers on the corporate, stock exchange and tax aspects.

The Gérard Perrier Industrie (GPI) group, created in 1967 and based near Lyon, is one of the leading independent players in the French market for electrical, electronic and automation equipment in industrial environments.

The GPI group has experienced strong and steady growth of nearly 8% per year for the last 10 years, with revenue of €211 million in 2019. Business has been driven both by organic growth, as the group's underlying markets are structurally well positioned (robotisation, electrification, carbon-free energy etc.), and by external growth, with several strategic acquisitions successfully incorporated during the period.

LAMY LEXEL assisted GPI in the reorganisation of its capital, carried out in less than three months, in three key stages:

  • the strengthening of majority control of the group by François Perrier and his family, with the gradual withdrawal of Grégoire Cacciapuoti, who is selling a considerable amount of his stake as initially planned,
  • the acquisition by Siparex of a stake in Amperra, the controlling holding company,
  • restructuring of the debt at the level of Amperra, carried out via firm underwriting by BP AuRA.
