Largillière Finance advises on the MBO of the communication agency BIG SUCCESS

Largillière Finance advised on the LMBO of Big Success, an integrated communication group (13 million turnover, 80 employees, 350 clients), a transaction financed by Trocadéro Capital Partners. The six managing partners of BIG SUCCESS now own 100% of its capital, after buying shares from the co-founder Jean-Paul Tréguer.

“I am delighted to pass on the torch to the magnificent Dream Team of partners who have helped us to build the group over the last 20 years. And we are even more delighted to remain 100% independent, something which is very rare in the communications industry. And of course, I will continue to help the group to grow in the future”.

“This is a brand new entrepreneurial adventure. After seeing the group develop over the past 20 years, all 6 of us are very enthusiastic about the idea of continuing to grow the group together.
