Goodwin Advises EMZ Partners On The Closing Of EMZ 9

The Paris Private Equity team advised EMZ Partners on the closing of its ninth fund EMZ 9, with a total commitment of €1.043 billion.

The fund executes the same strategy as EMZ Partners’ previous funds, focusing on sponsorless transactions. It was raised in less than 3 years after its predecessor EMZ 8, exceeding both its initial target of €900 million and its hard cap of €1 billion.

This strategy shows EMZ Partners’ ambition of investing alongside founders, family shareholders and managers willing to acquire or consolidate the control of their capital.

The Goodwin team was led by Arnaud DavidSarah Michel  on funds aspects and Marie-Laure Bruneel on tax aspects.
