EPSA, a global player specialized in operational and financial performance has announced today a minority investment from funds advised by TowerBrook Capital Partners L.P. (“TowerBrook”), RAISE Investissement (“RAISE”) and CAPZA Expansion (“CAPZA”).

This strategic investment will help drive EPSA’s long-term growth initiatives, which include accelerating the evolution of service offerings, investing in digital solutions, and strategically expanding via organic growth and targeted bolt-on acquisitions. These initiatives will continue to enhance EPSA’s client service and expand the company’s geographic footprint.

At a time when companies are subject to increasing pressure on supply chains and seeking to take advantage of opportunities for accelerated digitisation, EPSA has positioned itself as a major player in driving business performance – and in helping leading companies and public administrations to navigate the social and environmental challenges that will shape the economy of the future.

Matthieu Gufflet, CEO and Founder of the EPSA said: “We welcome the arrival of TowerBrook as shareholders and look forward to working alongside a partner with transatlantic and international experience, as well as the ambition to make EPSA the leading player for delivering lasting performance and optimisation tools and processes.”

According to Karim Saddi, Managing Director and Co-President of TowerBrook: “EPSA’s world-class offering, the quality of its management team and its strong culture of entrepreneurship have been key factors underpinning the historical growth of the business. TowerBrook is proud to support EPSA on its next phase of growth as it continues to provide high-quality global support and comprehensive, tailor-made solutions to boost the competitiveness of European companies.”
