We are pleased to announce the acquisition of Aegide International by Thesiger International, represented by Mr. Bourdon-Feniou. Founded in 1995, Aegide International is a Health, Safety and Environment specialist (HSE) dedicated to the oil and gas exploration and production in France and abroad.
With a 20 year experience and a recognized know-how from oil and gas operators and engineering companies, Aegide International has strong HSE references and a skilled team on which Mr. Bourdon-Feniou can rely to allow Aegide International to continue its development and reach a new milestone.
Mr. Bourdon-Feniou underlines that Mr. Lièvre Cormier (The seller) and himself, both coming from the drilling industry, share a “same strategic vision of Aegide International’s future steps”. Over the years, the company has managed to reinvent its positioning and core skills, in a rather challenging market dominated by worldwide firms and highly cyclical. The acquirer has specially insisted on maintaining Aegide International’s culture and history.
In the course of its deal flow, I-Deal Development has targeted Aegide International and the seller has quickly been convinced by the project presented by Mr Bourdon-Feniou. Moreover, working close to the seller was a criteria in his investment. Indeed the buyer says “he will remain involved in a more passive way than in the past but will act as a technical referent, especially on R & D projects to come”. The buyer is going to continue to invest on the existing assets, using his past experience in The United Arab (audit and inspection of rigs).
Mr. Bourdon-Feniou asked I-Deal Development to represent Thesiger International in the acquisition process, “as Frédéric Bonan is known both for his very dynamic
approach and creative know-how” and “his great expertise of the acquisition process “.
The buyer adds that he has been convinced by I-Deal Development’s team that has proven “flexible, available and highly proactive presence, putting my interests in the
heart of the process”, and states the following: ” the relationships that I-Deal Development maintains with its financial partners and their experience in this field have
been critical for the success of the transaction “.
