- Important milestone reached in creating a new contract catering and multiservices leader. Shareholders’ Meeting scheduled to approve the transaction on April 18, 2023.
- Independent directors to play a stronger role in Elior Group's governance, ensuring a balanced Board of Directors once the transaction is completed.
- BDL Capital Management, Permian Investment Partners, FSP, and EMESA—representing in total approximately 24.4% of Elior Group ownership—will vote in favor of the contribution.
Bernard Gault, Chairman and CEO of Elior Group, commented:
“With the signing of the Derichebourg Multiservices acquisition agreement, we have taken a decisive step in our project to create a new leader in contract catering and multiservices. This project lays out a new ambition for the Elior Group, one that will create value for its employees, customers, and shareholders.
I personally ensured that this project will be supported by a new governance structure that meets the highest standards in terms of balance and independence over the long term. This new structure will enable all stakeholders to benefit from Elior’s development and success.
I would like to thank Derichebourg SA and all the other shareholders who are supporting us in this process, particularly those who have already pledged their support at the upcoming General Meeting on April 18, where shareholders will vote on the transaction.”
