Indigo Capital SAS is an independent investment management firm specialising in the provision of private bonds and preferred equity to mid-market businesses. The management team is composed of 8 professionals, who have been working together for more than 20 years.
Since 2000, Indigo Capital SAS’ team has arranged flexible capital solutions for fifty or so French and European transactions alongside leading private equity funds, management teams and corporates. Indigo invests in France and Europe across all industry sectors.
Indigo’s funds are structured as french private equity investment funds (FPCI). Investors in these funds are international institutional investors, private and public pension funds, insurance groups, bank groups, specialised funds-of-funds and family offices. Indigo has currently €500 million under management through different funds.
The management company is approved and regulated by the French Financial Markets Authority (AMF). Indigo is a signatory of the United Nation Principles for Responsible Investments (UNPRI), and is committed to the implementation of ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) best practices both at the level of its organization and within its investee companies. Indigo’s ESG charter is available upon request.
In October 2019, Indigo Capital decided to accelerate long-term efforts to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of its portfolio companies by joining France Invest’s “Initiative Climat 2020” (IC20). IC20 was born out of France’s leading private equity firm’s willingness to join forces in order to contribute, at their level, to COP21’s objective to limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius and continue efforts to reduce it to 1.5 degrees Celsius. As major players for growth in France, via this initiative they wish to take an active role in building companies that respect both human societies and the environment.
We structure and arrange innovative financing packages which address the various needs of our investee companies.
We usually invest between 5 and 40 million euros per transaction through a set of bonds, bonds with warrants, convertible bonds and we have the capacity to complete an equity funding round if required.
We work in close partnership with managers and business owners to accelerate their development and create more value for them and for our investors.
We support entrepreneurs and management teams in situations where raising new equity is unnecessary. Our alternative capital solutions are suited to a variety of « liquidity events » including founder-manager handovers, business successions, management-led transactions or minority shareholder exits. Our solutions are less dilutive and more flexible than traditional equity.
We back businesses with ambitious growth prospects and help them to consolidate their strategic position via organic growth or acquisitions. We provide funding for extensive Capex programs, roll-out strategies and national or international build-up programs.
We provide private equity funds with financing for conventional and non-standard management buyouts such as carve-outs or public-to-privates and for more complex situations requiring tailor-made financing solutions or capital structures.
We provide innovative and flexible financing solutions to meet shareholders’ specific financing needs (reclassification of shares, post-turnaround balance sheet consolidation, refinancing) in supplementing or compensating for capital gains.
Indigo is able to react very quickly to complex financing requirements and provide tailor-made solutions best suited to each case. Indigo works in partnership with all parties involved in their transactions. Indigo’s approach is informal yet professional.
Indigo’s team totals eight professionals with extensive experience in credit and private equity. The team has a successful track record of sourcing, executing, supporting and exiting investments in most European countries.
