Hayfin supports Eurazeo’s acquisition of Eres

Hayfin today announces that it has arranged the debt financing of Eurazeo’s acquisition of Eres Group (“Eres”), a French employee savings distribution platform. Hayfin’s support for the acquisition extends its relationship with Eres, having been a lender to the business since IK Partners’ acquisition of Eres in 2019.

Established in 2005, Eres is the leading French independent player in the advisory and structuring, asset management and distribution of employee profit sharing plans (PEE, PERECO), retirement schemes (PER) and employee shareholding plans. Headquartered in Paris, Eres distributes its products through a network of more than 6,600 distributors (wealth management advisors, insurance brokers, accountants) and directly addresses mid-sized companies and large groups.

Clement Le Lagadec, Hayfin Director for Private Credit in France, commented: “Thanks to its strong knowledge of the company and its management, Hayfin has been able to quickly position itself as a lead lender in this highly competitive process. In this vein, we are delighted to support Eurazeo in the financing of this transaction. We have been impressed by Eres’ performance over the past five years and are excited to continue our journey with the company alongside its management and its new private equity partner Eurazeo.”
