VCP Launches Merger and Acquisition Services
LYON, France – As part of its continuing effort to position itself as the leading financial services firm in the global cycling industry Vélo Capital Partners (VCP) has announced the launch of its Merger and Acquisition (M&A) Services.
Initially, VCP will provide Sell-Side only services to established companies looking to sell a minority stake, one or more business segments or the entire company. With time and an expanded team VCP’s vision is to provide a full offering of both Buy-Side and Sell-Side M&A services.
Patrick Keating, Team Leader Vélo Capital Partners says, “During the past year and a half as we have been working diligently to establish the first early and expansion stage venture capital fund to invest in the next generation of technology for the global cycling industry.
During that time we’ve seen a tremendous need from the market for experienced and value-added advice when it comes to selling all or divesting of ownership or part of a company for different purposes and at optimum terms, conditions and value.”
Proper infrastructure and team
“It’s something we had planned all along for VCP,” continues Keating. “Yet, we wanted to wait until we had a better understanding of the cycling industry dynamics and, in addition, could build the proper infrastructure and team to service potential clients. Now we’ve done this and are beginning to respond to and solicit selected sell-side assignments from the global cycling market.”
