Lisi Aerospace has sold LACE to Rafaut, a portfolio company of HLD
LACE is a leading mission-critical equipment provider to the military and civil helicopter industry. LACE primarily designs, manufactures and maintains multirole hooks which are used to complete rescue operations and military insertion / extraction operations, move and transport cargo. LACE benefits from entrenched positions with leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), such as Airbus Helicopters, Sikorsky and Bell Helicopter.
“The complementary nature of LACE and Rafaut’s expertise and capabilities will lead to strong commercial and industrial synergies,” commented Christophe Seige, Chief Executive Officer of LACE.
With the acquisition of LACE, Rafaut consolidates its position in the European helicopter mission-critical equipment market and pursues its strategy to become a leading provider of mission and hardpoints systems to the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry.
“It’s been a great pleasure to have represented Lisi Aerospace on this strategic transaction. This transaction evidenced our expertise in the A&D mission-critical equipment industry and our ability to build trustful relationships with our clients over the long run,” added Géraud Estrangin, Managing Director in Lincoln’s A&D team.
Lincoln acted as the exclusive investment banking advisor to Lisi Aerospace, working closely with the LACE management team and shareholders throughout the sale process. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
It’s the fourth time that Lincoln International advises us on a divesture process. We highly appreciated its sector expertise, the full support and dedication of its global and local teams throughout the process.
