Patrick Hett has entrusted Largillière Finance with the assignment of Kimoce with the objective of finding a buyer who will carry a real growth project for the company and its employees.

Patrick Hett, Founder of Kimoce, entrusts us “Largillière Finance has been particularly attentive to our strategic research and has been able to accompany us with professionalism and a real added value in the knowledge of our businesses and the identification of relevant partners. The young and dynamic team was totally invested in our project by combining determination and efficiency.”
Nicolas Ibanez, Partner at Largillière Finance: “Kimoce is an essential software publisher in support functions. The roadmap of our client was clear: to find a buyer combining a vision of development and financial strength. After meeting several potential buyers, his choice ultimately turned to the Emplio Group.
