Management and Isatis Capital have sold a minority stake of Ekstend Group to Siparex Intermezzo and Smalt Capital
Ekstend is an independent group that provides high-end consulting and marketing services to its clients. Led by its Founder and Chief Executive Officer Franck Kaddouch, Ekstend positions itself as an extension of its customers’ internal marketing teams, offering tailor-made advisory and support across the entire value chain, from the creation and definition of marketing strategy to brand activation and team training. Over the past few years, the group has also successfully conducted an active external growth strategy, integrating agencies with complementary expertise to broaden its service offering and diversify its customer portfolio.
Siparex Intermezzo, with the support of Smalt Capital and Isatis Capital, has led a recapitalization of Ekstend. This transaction will enable Ekstend to accelerate its development and pursue an ambitious external growth strategy.
Matthieu Rosset, Managing Director in Lincoln’s Paris office, commented, “We are thrilled to have advised Ekstend and its shareholders for the second time. Over the last few years, the company has delivered ahead of its plan. Ekstend attracted a significant level of interest during the process. The new group of financial shareholders will be the best partners to support Ekstend in its ambitious growth strategy. This transaction further highlights Lincoln’s strong expertise in marketing technologies and services.”
It’s been a pleasure to work again with Lincoln. The team’s deep understanding of our market and our company, its commitment to excellence and its true advisory approach enabled the successful outcome of this transaction.
