Eight Advisory supported Ardian and Staci’s management team on the sale to bpostgroup

Eight Advisory provided financial, tax and IT due diligence services to Ardian and Staci’s management team in the context of the sale to bpostgroup.

Ardian has entered into exclusive discussions with bpostgroup with a view to sell its majority stake in Staci, the European leader in innovative B2B and B2B2C logistics solutions, to bpostgroup.

 

Founded in 1989, Staci has become a European market leader in innovative B2B and B2B2C logistics solutions for companies wishing to outsource all or part of their customer procurement operations. The company offers unique expertise in managing complex and scalable logistics flows, such as dealing with multiple suppliers and delivery points, low unit volumes, non-standard formats and products with and without barcodes.

 

Since its acquisition in 2019, Ardian has supported an ambitious growth plan that has seen the company grow beyond its historic marketing products segment by expanding into B2B logistics and eCommerce to become a multi-channel logistics specialist, benefiting from a broad range of expertise and a high-quality portfolio of national and international customers from a number of different industries. Acquisitions in the Netherlands (2021) and the USA (2023) supported Staci’s expansion, so that the group is now present in 10 countries with over 80 logistics hubs in Europe, the USA and Asia.

 

With this acquisition, Bpost aims to become a leader in e-commerce, omnichannel logistics and fulfilment in Europe. The transaction remains subject to the consultation of the relevant works’ council of Staci group, and to the clearances of the relevant regulatory authorities.
