LCL support for Demathieu Bard Group
LCL acted as mandated arranger, coordinator and broker in the LBO* carried out by the civil engineering group Demathieu Bard, aimed at securing its bank finance and increasing the proportion of shares owned by management. LCL, one of the group's long-term bankers, was the top lender in the operation's €117 million bank loans. The quality and proximity of the relationship monitoring (Banking Advisor & Business Unit at Metz), support for the customer's review of this operation (Corporate Advisory) and responsiveness during the LBO's execution phase (Private Banking and RCF Business Line) means that LCL is now the lead bank for this intermediate-sized enterprise.
