France, historically among the most important nations in the automotive industry, has four important Tier One OEMs which aim to expand principally in Asia. At the same time, medium-size automotive components manufacturers are competing head on with their numerous German counterparts. Therefore, FDC established a clear focus on Franco-German corporate finance activities to serve mainly French clients.

The infrastructure and energy sector is currently undergoing a major upheaval:

  • Developed countries are impacted by a slowdown in energy demand, reduced public spending and historical underinvestment in infrastructure;
  • Rapidly developing countries make it increasingly difficult to meet demands;
  • Questioning of support policies for renewable energy sources, etc.
The team brings its clients sound knowledge of these sectors and the therein existing issues, and key actors (private or public). We work both in acquisition or divestiture situations for structuring and raising corporate or structured financing. The team has particular expertise in:
  • Energy production (conventional or renewable),
  • Distribution networks (electricity, gas, water, heating)
  • Service providers and specialized equipment,
  • Social infrastructure (health, education, prison)
  • The shipping industry (ports, specialized services) and
  • Other transport infrastructure (road, rail, airport)
The team advises on projects that still need to be developed (greenfield financial advice), and also on already existing projects or companies (M&A brownfield advice).
