Global law firm White & Case LLP has advised independent, privately-held investment company Cobepa, and the other shareholders of Exclusive France Holding SAS, on the €1.3 billion sale of Exclusive Group to London-based international investment firm Permira.

"We advised Cobepa on the acquisition of Exclusive Networks in 2015, and have now advised the shareholders of Exclusive Group on this strategic transaction which will help propel the business to the next level," said Brussels-based White & Case partner Thierry Bosly, who led the Firm's deal team.

Exclusivity was granted on April 10, 2018 and the signing of the share purchase agreement is expected to occur in the coming days once a consultation process with Exclusive Group’s employees has been completed.
