Eight Advisory supported Latour Capital in the context of its investment in European Digital Group

Eight Advisory has conducted financial, tax, legal and ESG due diligence on behalf of Latour Capital in connection with its investment in European Digital Group (EDG).

EDG was founded in 2019 by entrepreneur Vincent Klingbeil, backed by the Montefiore investment fund. The Group has experienced strong growth over the past four years, fueled by a dynamic organic growth and multiple acquisitions. This has established the group as a leader in the digital acceleration sector. The group currently employs almost 1,700 people and has a turnover of over 250 million euros. EDG is able to support a diverse client base, ranging from listed companies to SMEs, and has structured its offering around five areas of expertise: Technology & Cybersecurity, Data & AI, Marketing Performance, Digital Content and Growth Drivers / HR.

 

Latour Capital’s investment in EDG aims to accelerate the Group’s growth, with the objective of exceeding the €1bn revenue threshold within the next five years. This ambition is underpinned by organic growth targets, an ongoing acquisition drive and the desire to strengthen international development. This LBO is part of a long-term strategy for EDG, which will retain its historic shareholders, Montefiore Investment, its founder Vincent Klingbeil and the entire management team.

 

This LBO will allow Latour Capital and Montefiore Investment (the historic shareholder) to hold the majority of EDG’s capital alongside Vincent Klingbeil and the management team.

 

The digital acceleration sector is constantly evolving and EDG has established itself as a key player thanks to its dynamic growth and leading position in this field, based on a strong entrepreneurial mindset. We are very proud to have assisted Latour Capital in this strategic transaction” said Pierre-David Forterre, Partner at Eight Advisory.
