IK Investment Partners to acquire Auxiga Group

IK Investment Partners (IK) is to acquire Auxiga Group, a French and Belgian leader of pledge inventory services. Financial terms of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Since its establishment in 1919 in Belgium and 1975 in France, Auxiga Group has been a bank guarantee expert, drawing up structured and flexible credit facilities using inventories as collateral. The Group operates through four business units: Auxiga and Sofigarant, which are the leading providers of pledge inventory services in France, Warrant, which provides the same services in Belgium and Auxicontrol, a specialist in asset control and floor check services. The Group provides an unparalleled know-how and a complete range of services for each phase of pledge financing, from the setup of the security agreement to the day-to-day monitoring of the pledged assets. 

Headquartered in Paris, Auxiga Group generated sales of EUR13 million in 2014 and employs 91 people.

“Auxiga Group holds an undisputed leadership position within its French and Belgian reference markets. The Group benefits from a strong and broad base of clients and prescribing partners. Together with the management team, we will continue to make inventory pledging a dynamic, secure way to provide financing to companies eager to better leverage their assets. We will, in parallel, develop synergies between the different entities of the Group, and offer an increased range of services to both the Group’s partners and clients,” says Pierre Gallix (pictured), Partner at IK.

“We are very excited by IK’s commitment to our company, as we believe their support will further enhance our capabilities to capture future market potential. Building on our fully integrated product offering and long-standing relationships with major banks in France and Belgium, we will focus on accelerating growth opportunities through a dynamic commercial strategy,” says Fabrice Soler, CEO of Auxiga
