The management of Potel & Chabot, Edmond de Rothschild Investment Partners (acting on behalf of FPCI WINCH Capital 3) and AccorHotels have entered into exclusive negotiations with the shareholders of Potel & Chabot Group (majority shareholder: 21 Centrale Partners), to acquire the Group’s entire share capital.
By investing in an iconic brand, which enjoys an unrivalled position in France as well as enormous international potential, Edmond de Rothschild Investment Partners and AccorHotels will respectively hold 51% and 40% of the share capital. This transaction will provide Potel & Chabot Group with new development prospects.
Founded in 1820, Potel & Chabot Group, which generates revenues in excess of €100 million, has unparalleled expertise in the organization of tailor-made prestigious reception events. Through its two brands, over the years the Group has become the industry standard in both the luxury (Potel & Chabot) and premium (Saint Clair le Traiteur) segments. Its range covers three major, mainly B2B, activities: receptions for corporate and private clients, major sporting, industrial and cultural events (such as the French Open at Roland Garros, the Biennale des Antiquaires, 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Saut Hermès), as well as the exclusive management of unique venues within the heart of Paris: Pavillon Vendôme, Pavillon Seine, Pavillon Kléber, Pavillon Gabriel, Hôtel d’Evreux, Pavillon Cambon Capucines and Pavillon Dauphine.
In addition to the resources provided by its two new investors, Potel & Chabot Group will also be able to leverage the business expertise of AccorHotels in order to jointly develop innovative and sophisticated F&B offers for MICE1 guests (either in hotels or private rentals) as well as for a local clientele, by making use of personalized concierge services.
