July 9th, 2015Sale of Vacalians to Permira.
Natixis Partners advised 21 Centrale Partners and the shareholders of Vacalians

21 Centrale Partners (the reference shareholder of Vacalians Group since 2011) has agreed to sell its stake to Permira, a private equity  firm managing assets worth €25bn.

Permira will support the management and historical shareholders (Proméo-Batipart) of Vacalians in its next expansion phase. This investment should allow Vacalians to pursue the development of its brand Tohapi (launched in 2015) and its consolidation strategy of the European market.

Created by the merger of Vacances Directes and Village Center in 2012, Vacalians Group is a major European player of the outdoor accommodation sector. The group owns 44 campsites in France, operates around 24300 spaces, including 17500 mobile-homes, and distributes its products in more than 300 partner and proprietary campsites in the most beautiful regions of France and Europe. In addition to its usual activities (managing camping sites and selling holiday packages), Vacalians Group also offers complementary services to all outdoor accomodation professionals. In 2014 Vacalians Group achieved sales over €140M and employed 700 people.
