Allyum advises Enerdeal Group on its sale to Energias de Portugal (EDP)
Allyum, the Belgian M&A financial advisory firm dedicated to medium-sized companies, has been mandated by Enerdeal Group's shareholders to seek a partner willing to acquire and develop jointly the company
Founded in 2009 by Grégoire de Pierpont, François Neu, and Filip Verboven, Enerdeal Group is a Belgium-based company that develops large-scale solar energy systems for industrial, commercial, and real estate companies in Belgium, Luxembourg, and Africa, ranging from 300kWp to 10mWp.
EDP, quoted on the Euronext 100 index and headquartered in Portugal, is the largest capitalization in the PSI20 index and operates in 29 countries, supplying electricity and gas to 9 million customers worldwide.
Enerdeal Group's local expertise in photovoltaic projects ideally complements EDP's renewable energy activities for business-to-business customers, according to EDP.
'The renewable energy market is growing rapidly and solar energy projects are becoming larger and more numerous. Being part of a large international energy group was a strategic step to accelerate our growth, hence our decision to join the EDP Group,' said Grégoire de Pierpont, Chief Executive Officer of Enerdeal Group.
Philippe Opsomer, Enerdeal Group's CFO, comments: "We have benefited from the support of Allyum throughout the whole process. Their creative teasing approach, daily commitment, and high level of financial expertise made this transaction a success."
EDP and Enerdeal Group were respectively advised on the legal side by DLA Piper and Nibelle & Partners
