Electa Group is an independent network settled and promoted in 2003 by a professional team of corporate bankers with a large experience acquired in domestic and international financial markets.
Electa Group has been successfully advising the most important paneuropean private equity funds (among which Bridge Point, Cinven, Ergon Capital, LCapital, Mandarin Capital Partners) through its highly specialized business units operating in Luxembourg and Italy, taking mainly care of deal structuring activities, M&A advisory and financial engineering. Starting from its incorporation Electa assisted and structured more than 80 transactions and business combinations, for a total enterprise value amounting to more than € 6 billion.
During the years the Group enlarged its professional activity with the designing of innovative solutions to solve critical situations, usually concerning portfolio companies of vintage PE funds, by management disintermediation to fully meet interest alignment and expectations of all involved parties.
In the most recent period, Electa Group also started the promotion and development of pioneering projects, basically for professional investors, to help the listing of successful Italian SMEs.
Electa sponsored the creation of Made in Italy 1 (www.madeinitaly1.net), first SPAC of Italian law, listed on the AIM Market of Milan stock exchange and subsequently merged with SeSa S.p.A. (www.sesa.it), now listed on the STAR segment of MTA Market, with great performance for investors.
In the light of this positive experience, Electa and its managing partners incorporated a new venture called IPO Challenger S.p.A. (about € 52M subscribed by professional investors), in the form of a club deal, that in January 2015 brought to the Milan stock exchange Italian Wine Brands, first listed Italian wine company, consolidating Giordano Vini and Provinco Italia.
