Elior Group (Euronext Paris – ISIN: FR 0011950732), one of the world’s leading operators in
catering and support services, strengthens its presence in North America and confirms
its development strategy in India, thus adding impetus to the Group’s turnaround.
Elior North America announces the acquisition of Cater To You Food Service, which enlarges
its foothold in the Education market as well as its presence on the East Coast of the United
States. In addition, Elior Group reaffirms its presence in India, with renewed focus on the
premium Business & Industry market, offering strong potential for development.
These strategic areas of development attest to Elior Group’s international ambitions. The
Group will continue to draw on its expertise and commitment to excellence in order to meet
the diverse needs of its clients around the world.
Elior Group Chairman and CEO Daniel Derichebourg commented: “I am pleased to reaffirm
Elior Group's strong international potential for development. The acquisition of Cater To You
in the United States, whose moderate cost is not out of step with the priority given by the
Group to deleveraging, increases our long-term organic growth prospects in this country.
Our presence in India, now with a new focus on the premium B&I market, offers strong
potential for profitable growth. These two areas of development will thus contribute to
accelerating the Group's turnaround, over and above the measures already well underway for
restructuring our contract catering business in France and extracting synergies involved in
the integration of Derichebourg Multiservices.”
