Altamir has sold its investment in Alain Afflelou


Paris, 6 January 2022 – Altamir and the funds managed by Amboise Partners have sold their investment in Alain Afflelou as of 31 December 2021 to holding companies held by Mr Alain Afflelou for a total amount de €63m. Excluding the repurchase of a secondary position in the Apax France VII private equity fund (renamed Aho20), Altamir realised a multiple of 1.8 times its initial investment in 2012.

Alain Afflelou was the last remaining portfolio investment of Altamir's legacy investment strategy, which consisted in investing alongside the funds managed by Apax Partners SA.

Since 2011, Altamir investment strategy has been to invest primarily in funds managed by Apax Partners SAS and Apax Partners LLP and to co-invest alongside these same funds.

As announced at the time of the takeover by Amboise in 2018, Altamir can take advantage of other investment opportunities to increase its exposure to fast-growing markets (North America and Asia) or to invest with a time horizon that is longer than that of traditional private equity funds when a company's growth and value-creation potential is still significant. Accordingly, Altamir has allocated €90m to the Altaroc Global 2021-23 vintages (ca. €30m p.a.) and invested €100m in THOM Group's top-level holding company, thereby becoming its lead shareholder.
