Carpentras Sign, an office supplies and stationery products distributor, unwraps its 2008 LBO.

Owned by CM-CIC Investissement (largest shareholder), Omnes Capital, Socadif, Unexo and its management, it is 100% under the control of Calendars of Paris, a family SME present on the same trade.

The latter would have financed this transaction on its cash and by drawing on an existing line of credit. In this way, it is able to manage a turnover of around € 20 million, which allows it to more than double its revenues, which amounted to € 15 million in 2015.
