Press release - 8 April 2021
Founded in 2006 in Lille by Emilie Croxo and Grégory Bouillon, Adenior is a network of franchises specializing in personal services with a strong presence in the Hauts-de-France region. Initially dedicated to home care for dependent people, the network has become a multi-specialist player (childcare, home maintenance, etc.). In 2020, Adenior, which has 24 branches and a turnover of more than €10 million, was ranked the best multi-service homecare company in France by Capital magazine.
In a context of sustained growth, which continued during the health crisis, Adenior's shareholder managers entrusted Largillière Finance with the task of finding a strategic partner.
The efficient process implemented by Largillière Finance enabled several quality offers to be obtained and that of the Destia Group was selected by Adenior's shareholder managers.
The transaction consists of the sale of 100% of Adenior and allows Groupe Destia to strengthen its presence in the Hauts-de-France region. Emilie Croxo and Grégory Bouillon will join Groupe Destia and will remain in charge of the operational management of Adenior.
