Paris, 11 December 2018 – Altamir has sold its remaining stake in Albioma to Impala, a diversified group with more than 6,000 employees operating in energy, manufacturing, brands and asset management.
Altamir's investment in Albioma (ca. 5.5% of the share capital), which was held via Altamir's subsidiary Financière Hélios, was sold for €31.7m.
Following this transaction, Altamir no longer holds any Albioma shares.
“I am very pleased that Jacques Veyrat has become a significant shareholder of Albioma, via the Impala group. His in-depth knowledge of the renewable energy sector at the international level should pave the way for accelerated growth at Albioma,” said Maurice Tchenio, Chairman of Altamir Gérance.
