May 15, 2014

Ivalis Group, controlled by founder Frédéric Marchal and Ekkio Capital, is one of the leading international players in the area of physical inventory outsourcing. 

It was recently announced that Willkie client Ivalis Group, specialists in inventory outsourcing, completed its merger-absorption of Kamino, its controlling holding company. The absorption of Kamino, a legal entity created to manage Ivalis’ shares, will simplify the group’s present structure in Western Europe, as well as in Russia, Turkey and Brazil, and promote the overall development of the group. Ivalis, which is controlled by founder Frédéric Marchal and Ekkio Capital, is one of the leading international players in the area of physical inventory outsourcing. Barberine, the joint holding company of Mr. Marchal and Ekkio, directly and indirectly through Kamino, controls 95% of the share capital and voting rights of Ivalis.

The deal was handled by partner Christophe Garaud, special European counsel Philippe Grudé and associate Gil Kiener.
