Médiafi (€ 50 million in turnover), a holding company with several activities (Services, Public Works, Media, etc.), refocuses its capital on operational shareholders of the Chane Ki Chune family before carrying out new operations to finance a new development cycle

Paris, 3rd february 2020

Founded in 1976 by Maximin Chane Ki Chune, the family group started in the press activities (Le Quotidien of la Réunion, the department’s best-selling daily press) before diversifying into several other activities. The group is today organized around five autonomous activities: Services (archiving, call center, cash transport, etc.), construction, media, printing and real estate. 

Directed by Carole and Boris Chane Ki Chune, children of the founder and shareholders, the group implements a family and long-term vision in making strategic decisions for its development. The group is involved in the economic development of Reunion.

It employs nearly 600 people.

With the aim of launching a new development and investment plan, the group has carried out a capital restructuring in order to allow the Chane Ki Chune family to acquire 100% of the capital of Médiafi, via its holding company SIROB.

The group plans to welcome new investors to accelerate its development plan.

Carole Chane Ki Chune, CEO of Médiafi :

« We are delighted with this operation, which allows us to begin a new phase of development for our family group. At Largillière Finance, we found a team that is highly involved and responsive in order to complete this closing in record time while respecting the financial balance for the various parties involved. »
