Cerea Dette II co-arranges senior acquisition financing for Nutrisens groupOn the 28th of April 2021, Cerea Dette II co-arranged a senior acquisition financing for health nutrition provider Nutrisens, on the occasion of Sagard's takeover of the group.
Nutrisens is a French and European leader in health nutrition, supplying medical establishments (hospitals, retirement homes, pharmacies) with a wide range of nutritional products dedicated to the needs of elderly and/or vulnerable individuals suffering from dysphagia (swallowing disorders) or undernourishment.
The group meets its clients' requirements through two complementary activities, namely medical nutrition (mixed dishes and jellied waters for individuals suffering from dysphagia) and clinical nutrition (oral nutritional supplements for individuals suffering from undernourishment).
Nutrisens relies on its nutritional expertise, coupled with a focus on taste quality and innovation, in order to offer products matching the specific needs of patients as well as their expectations in terms of general eating pleasure.
Thanks to its good knowledge of the company and its relationship with the shareholders and management team, who appreciate Cerea's sector expertise, Cerea Dette II played a key role in this transaction by acting as co-arranger of the senior debt alongside a pool of banks and by underwriting the entire C tranche. Cerea Dette II is the only debt fund on the transaction.
