Integral service around a transaction

The fashion sector has become one of the main drivers of transaction and M&A activity in the last two years. The existence of an attractive fabric of medium-sized internationalised companies with growth potential and the existence of firms that have had to undertake restructuring or needed funds to launch an internationalisation project have paved the way for the entry of new partners in some of our best-known national players.. In 2016 we have seen how MCH has invested in Jeanlogía.

MCH invests in Jeanlogy

Jeanologia the Spanish company, specialising in textile finishing technology, has launched the Spanish fund of private equity MCH Private Equitywhich has bought 35% of the company's shares for €20M.

With this capital injection, Jeanlogía intends to finance the expansion of its business and double its size in three years, as well as the development of new sustainable technologies for the textile industry.

In the last five years, the company has boosted its international expansion and has opened subsidiaries abroad to support its customers. Jeanología currently has its own offices in India, Hong Kong, Bangladesh, Brazil and Mexico.

Jeanologia specialises in the design and manufacture of sustainable technologies for the textile sector, such as lasers. The company achieved a turnover of around €30M, a figure it expects to double by 2018, focusing a large part of its efforts on R&D&I activity, to which it will invest €10M.

This operation is the first operation of MCH's fourth fund. Private Equitywhich has just sold its last holding in the first fund set up in 1998, the 15% of the restoration Comess Group.

We have also seen several divestments in the fashion sector in 2016, such as that of Portobello at Festa.

IntelFin consists of a cognitive system, which, through the application of advanced analytical technologies, facilitates the automation of investment and financing decisions in the field of non-listed companies and especially SMEs in high-growth sectors.

The information related to these companies is characterized by their lack of transparency and heterogeneity; thus, it is necessary to develop an advanced analysis which is as much predictive as prescriptive and is developed in a natural language custom, suitable to obtain greater clarity and knowledge of the investment scope.

Therefore, IntelFin supports strategic decision-making to senior management by resolving questions such as:

¿What are my competitors' priorities, strategies and expansion plans? Who's my competition? Which competitor is most likely to grow at a higher rate?
Which areas of activity/business models will receive the most investment? Which sectors are most attractive to investors?
Which companies are going to experience the most growth in the near future? Which companies are most likely to receive investment or be acquired?
