Groupe Rossi Aéro has agreed to receive a capital investment from Tikehau Capital and Ace Capital

Groupe Rossi Aéro

Created by the Rossi family in 1976, Groupe Rossi Aéro has become a tier-1 supplier of speedshop, serial manufacturing and maintenance, repair and operations services to the global aerospace industry. It supplies a broad range of build-to-print machined and sheet metal-finished, detailed parts and assemblies. The company is recognized for its on-time delivery, quality and responsiveness. Groupe Rossi Aéro operates three sites in the Toulouse, France, area, and holds a key position in the aerospace supply chain. As a strategic supplier to Airbus, the company has established itself as a long-term partner for leading players in the aerospace industry.

The Deal

Lincoln utilized its sector and transaction expertise to address the challenges faced by each Groupe Rossi Aéro stakeholder, including Airbus, shareholders, lenders and business partners. Leveraging global resources to solicit interest from both strategic players and financial investors, Lincoln generated substantial interest with French and international strategic players, including Asian, European and North American, who recognize Groupe Rossi Aéro’s strategic position and value proposition with Airbus, notably as a development-to-production supplier as well as with financial investors willing to participate in the consolidation of the aerospace supply chain. Mathieu Rossi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Groupe Rossi Aero, commented, “The entry of Tikeau and Ace Capital was a mark of confidence and a recognition of the work accomplished by all the Rossi Aero teams and our key positioning in the aeronautical value chain as a specialist in rapid manufacturing.”

Our Perspective

Lincoln’s recent experience with aerospace transactions in the current, difficult market environment allowed us to identify strategic alternatives and give shareholders, lenders and clients options to secure a deal, while creating the best possible outcome for each party. We are glad that our understanding of the market’s drivers, the strategic corporations’ mergers and acquisitions appetite, the deep knowledge of the financial community and the contribution from our Capital Advisory Group facilitated a successful transaction.
