Weinberg Capital Partners has entered exclusive negotiations with Motion Equity Partners for the sale of Résilians
WCP announces that it is in exclusive negotiations with Motion Equity Partners for the sale of its majority stake in Résilians.
Founded in 1995 by Alain Tanguy, Résilians is the leading independent provider of in-kind damage repair services in France. The group has developed a complete range of services in the fields of emergency assistance and building renovation. Résilians provides services to individuals and companies on behalf of insurance companies, experts and co-ownership syndicates. Historically present in the West of France, the group has extended its network by opening agencies as well as through structuring acquisitions (3iD and Nüwa).
Résilians is also a pioneer in the digitalization of its businesses. In addition to its own developments, the Group notably acquired the digital jobber platform Frizbiz in June 2020.
The group now has 1,200 field workers and a unique national network of 42 agencies.
Since WCP acquired a majority stake alongside the management team and Vespa Capital in 2017, Résilians has more than tripled in size. With an annual organic growth of over 10% and its recent external growth operations, Résilians has passed the 100M in turnover.
"We are pleased to have supported Résilians alongside Alain Tanguy and his team. Since WCP took a stake in the company, Résilians has experienced a strong acceleration of its development and has positioned itself as an independent leader in its market. In a highly fragmented environment and with clients looking for the emergence of national, multi-company players, Résilians still has very significant growth prospects. "says Lionel Mestre, Partner at WCP.
"Over the years, Résilians has been able to create a successful and profitable business model. Over the last few years, we have accelerated our development through an ambitious external growth strategy as well as through the digitalization of our offer and processes. The Group is now well positioned to absorb more volumes from its customers. "Alain Tanguy, Chairman of Résilians, added.
