Communiqués de presse - 6 December 2022
Largillière Finance advises D Groupe, a family-owned group with expertise in specialized transport and 4PL logistics, in its acquisition of Logsytech, a French specialist in e-commerce and retail logistics.
With more than 25 years of experience and 380 employees, D Groupe is a leader in specialized delivery with high added value. Among its key services: delivery with assembly, packaging recovery, commissioning and end-user training; delivery without breaking the load of extremely sensitive products in sectors such as medical, banking and art.
The company has a national hub of 20,000 m² based in Emerainville (77), 17 agencies and 5 logistics platforms of 40,000 m² throughout France. The group has a turnover of more than 60 M€ and a regular growth of more than 12% per year. D Group and its subsidiaries provide services to major accounts such as Ricoh, Xerox, Coca Cola, Pepsi Cola, JPG and Photomaton.
Founded in 2001 and based in Lieusaint (77), Logsytech is an expert in complex logistics for players in e-commerce, telephony, connected objects and marketing, with particular know-how in retail logistics for the management of consumables and spare parts. It operates 5 warehouses totalling 30,000m² and employs 160 people serving customers such as SFR, Weight Watchers, Recommerce, La Française des Jeux, Total Energie, Ontex and Sogetrel.
The new entity will strengthen its offer to its customers: "same day" and tight delivery, network of relay points, drop shipping and advanced storage, direct injection, 1st kilometer collection, specialized facilities and reverse logistics.
Largillière Finance accompanied D Groupe throughout the process, from the search for targets to the final transaction, illustrating its good knowledge of the logistics transport sector in which the bank has already carried out several operations over the last 24 months, such as the sale of Crystal Group to Dimotrans, the fundraising by My Tower from Réflexion Capital and the transfer of Moine Group to Galilé Group.
Delta+ Consulting was chosen by the two managers to carry out the feasibility study and the technical and operational merger, and to identify all possible synergies.
Shamir Razavhoussen, Managing Director at Largillière Finance, is delighted: "We are very happy to have accompanied D Groupe and its shareholders in this new stage of their development. This merger with Logsytech will enable them to strengthen their know-how and to go even further in innovation to meet complex logistics needs. We are already studying new opportunities for the group".
Radé Jovic, President of D Groupe, said: "From the beginning of our merger with Logsytech, we quickly became convinced that our respective customers would benefit from our common strengths. Our two companies strongly converge in the search for value creation throughout the logistics and transport chain. Our expertise in setting up and reconditioning technical equipment is therefore very complementary. We are happy and proud to carry out our development projects alongside this company, which is an expert in its sector, and we thank Largillière Finance for having supported us in this step".
