Press release - 28 September 2021
The investment bank Largillière Finance, has accompanied Vashi, the brand of the jeweler Vashi Dominguez, for part of its fundraising of more than € 45 million (£ 40 million) dedicated to accelerate the development of its activities in England and its expansion in the United States.
This operation allows the investment bank to demonstrate once again the relevance of its approach, close to the interests of entrepreneurs, even in their international operations.
Beyond its technical expertise, Largillière Finance was chosen by the British company for its in-depth knowledge of the French and Swiss markets, allowing it to introduce the most relevant institutional investors such as family offices and asset management companies.
Working simultaneously between the UK, France and Switzerland?
Largillière Finance is not new to the business, as last April the French bank orchestrated the sale of British car manufacturer Caterham.
This new successful operation reinforces Largillière Finance's expertise in the UK market and, more generally, in assisting transactions in multicultural environments.
Vashi is one of the UK's fastest growing brands, particularly during the health crisis.
Vashi is positioned in the luxury jewelry sector with a hybrid model combining digital and flagship store.
Its revenue in 2020 is £54 million and is estimated to reach £100 million in 2021. The company continues to grow strongly: Vashi has increased its revenue by 10 times in 3 years and its EBITDA by 24 times in 5 years.
With offices in Paris, Lyon, Geneva and Brussels, Largillière Finance is an independent investment bank dedicated to assisting managers and shareholders of small and medium-sized companies with their capital transactions: company sales and acquisitions, financing (capital and/or debt), financial engineering (valuation, etc.) and financial strategy.
