Our Activity

Liautaud & Cie has three main activities:

  • Investment in equity capital in firms characterized by high growth and a stable business model : Meccano and Editions de La Martinière have figured in the portfolio which has now broadened to include more specific concepts such as e-commerce.
  • Strategic advisory services at top management level to large French groups operating in Europe and/or worldwide. Martine Liautaud has managed several important privatizations and is currently advisor to several CEOs of the CAC 40.
  • Mergers and acquisitions, in operations of strategic growth or to refocus on core activities, in particular in the field of utilities. The most recent transaction the firm advised was the acquisition of La Compagnie du Vent (aeolian energy) by the group GDF Suez.

    Liautaud & Cie's team consists of a close-knit group of independent, highly experienced and complementary professionals. The firm develops long term relations with its clients based on flexibility, reactivity and discretion. Its in-depth experience of firms, men and top level strategy enables it to perform efficiently in all situations.
