We have been working with Peru & Partners since 2012. At the time our only fund managed 100mn euros and we decided to entrust them to manage our general secretariat for two reasons. Firstly, like any AMF fund, Latour Capital must comply with demanding legal and accounting procedures. The use of a third party allowed us to have access to high-level expertise, whereas internally, the size of our first fund would not have allowed us the same quality Secondly, Sébastien Péru was recommended to us. We appreciated the person, his approach but also the presence of a real team of professionals at his side.

Verallia represents the Saint-Gobain group's Packaging business, which was sold to Apollo's investment fund in October 2015. Initially, P. & Partners was mandated by Apollo's legal counsel to manage accounts of the acquisition holding companies and to issue the first certificates relating to the listing of convertible bonds. "Post-acquisition (...), we called on P. & Partners for specific assignments (...) they played a role as a safety valve at a time when so many accounting, legal and tax issues were involved in the implementation of post-closing operations (...) Whether it was Sébastien or Mathieu, they were able to be responsive and attentive to our needs! »

As a conference specialist at BOSCH, I had the opportunity to succeed Guy Chardonnereau, founder of PROSON, in 2012. Beyond our family ties, P. & Partners assisted me in setting up transaction with PROSON by taking charge of the entire investment process (financial structure, choice of sponsor fund, negotiations with banks, management of legal advisors, etc.). From a project under study in 2011, PROSON became a reality in 2012 and quickly established itself in life! In 2015, I organized a buyout with the help of P. & Partners to take back control of the company in June 2016.

Antoine de Larocque (DG NEOEN Development) "I worked with Sébastien Péru in Private Equity (...) When he founded his company in 2009, I followed his career path and the successive changes at P. & Partners with interest (...) I am looking for more operational people (...) I would summarize in 3 key words the staff profiles (....) : structured, methodical and true". Sébastien Murcia (DAF France NEOEN) "The firm P. & Partners has honoured a relatively long engagement of 8 months (...) in "outsourced DAF" for approximately 2 days a week (...) Our group had to face (...) a significant increase in its activity (...) Sébastien and his team then took over the current activity of a recently acquired company (...)
