The Carlyle Group Announces Investment in Cap Vert Finance


Paris, France - Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ:CG) today announced it has entered into an agreement with Eurazeo PME to take a majority shareholding in Cap Vert Finance, an IT hardware life-cycle management company based in France. The management team will retain a significant minority holding in the business and will continue to lead the company.

Equity for the transaction comes from Carlyle Europe Technology Partners III, a €656m Carlyle fund focused on European telecommunications, media and technology companies. The transaction is subject to anti-competition approval and it is expected to close at the end of July 2015. Further financial details were not disclosed.

Headquartered in Paris, Cap Vert employs around 250 people and operates in more than 110 countries. The company is active across the IT lifecycle management value chain through three areas: maintenance of servers, critical IT storage and networking equipment; hardware recycling and IT asset financing.

The services provided by Cap Vert have been instrumental in ensuring customers achieve a range of sustainability targets, including CO2 footprint reduction, useful life extension and full traceability of electronics equipment as imposed by European Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) directives. In 2014, the company recycled 500 tons of IT equipment, and has plans to increase this further.

Bruno Demolin, CEO of Cap Vert said: “We are excited to have Carlyle as our new partner, because they understand the technology sector well, and bring a wide range of experience that will help us expand the company. Their support will strengthen our offering in key international markets, including the US, and enable us to continue to make relevant acquisitions.”

Pierre Meignen, Associate Director at Eurazeo PME, declared: “Assisting Cap Vert Finance in its international expansion has been a great joy for us. Thanks to the top-notch work of Bruno Demolin and his entire management team, the group demonstrated its ability to be a true European mid-cap company that was open to the world. The group that we will transfer to the Carlyle team, with whom it will be able to pursue its growth path both in France and internationally, is solid and responsible, and strengthened by the development of an ambitious and proactive CSR policy.”

Vladimir Lasocki, Managing Director at The Carlyle Group said: “Cap Vert’s characteristics make it a strong investment opportunity for Carlyle Europe Technology Partners III, not least its innovative service offering, unique expertise in managing and recycling of professional IT equipment, strong potential for international development, and the total dedication of its management team. We intend to combine The Carlyle Group’s expertise and network with Cap Vert’s business expertise in order to further the company’s growth and to continue the excellent work of the Eurazeo PME team.”

Carlyle was advised on the transaction by DLA Piper, Accuracy and Neovian Partners.
