On 23 September, Caisse des Dépôts announced that it has received a binding offer from Tikehau Capital, the alternative asset management group, to acquire a 42% stake in its subsidiary Egis, a specialist in engineering, construction and mobility services.
Pursuant to the proposed transaction, Tikehau Capital would hold 40% to 44% of Egis’ capital, through its T2 Energy Transition Fund. Caisse des Dépôts would retain 34% alongside Egis’ executive partners and employees who would hold approximately between 22% and 26%2 of Egis' capital.
In order to accelerate the development of Egis in the implementation of its Impact the Future strategic plan, Caisse des Dépôts plans to expand Egis' shareholder base by welcoming a leading investor. In this context, we have decided to enter into exclusive negotiations with Tikehau Capital, a trusted partner who shares our desire to support Egis' international development over the long term. Caisse des Dépôts would continue to be an active shareholder and remain committed to the success of Egis. Thanks to the dedication of its management team and its employees, Egis is well positioned to achieve exceptional growth across all its business lines.
