An external growth strategy with a second strategic acquisition

Pharma-Recherche Group, previously the owner of well-established brands Bio-Recherche and Vegemedica, recently expanded its footprint in the dietary supplements industry by acquiring Monin-Chanteaud Laboratories.

IJA makes an OBO to secure its position in the legal training sector

Institut Juridique d’Aquitaine makes an OBO to support its growth and anticipate its future.

Leader in legal assistant training The Institut Juridique d’Aquitaine is an organization that trains future assistants whose vocation is to work in the legal professions (lawyers, judicial commissioners, notaries). Founded in 2002 and based in Bordeaux, the institute proposes state-recognized training courses certified to RNCP level 5 (equivalent to Bac+2). With its flexible approach, the IJA offers face-to-face, semi-face or distance learning courses, tailored to the specific needs of its learners.

Its expertise resides in its collaboration with seasoned professionals who teach all courses. Over the course of 9 months, students benefit from the theoretical knowledge of these experts, complemented by a validating internship. IJA’s strength lies in the very DNA of its creation: to deliver training that is as much judicial as legal, in line with the day-to-day expectations of professionals in the sector and enabling the rapid professional integration of its trainees into legal assistant positions.

Ensuring the continuity and success of the IJA

Bénédicte DEL RISCO and Géraldine MARIOTTE are both founders and associate directors of IJA. Their common wish was to secure and anticipate their retirement, but also to consolidate their structure to develop it in new directions. This is why Widoowin CF was mandated by the directors to support them in an OBO operation.

As the only school on the market dedicated to the legal assistant profession, IJA’s business is booming, and its structure, cash flow and profitability are sufficiently healthy for this type of transaction.

This OBO will enable IJA to expand its offering with new training courses for other regulated professions, in an ever-changing market. The founders remain involved in the company, ensuring a transition and continuity in the quality of the training provided by IJA.

A new adventure for the Golf d’Allot, through Loisirs Solutions group


Since May 1st, Loisirs Solutions group is the new owner of the Golf du Château d’Allot, located in Boé, near the city of Agen. Widoowin CF has once again accompanied the managers during this acquisition.

The Golf d’Allot : a peaceful heaven

The only 18-hole course in the Agenais, the Château d’Allot Golf Club, designed by a British architect Michael Fenn, is a popular resort for golfers from all over the world, attracted by the beauty of the round and the facilities of the estate.

Built on the foundations of an old medieval castle, the Chateau d’Allot estate, owned by the Tovo family since the 1970s, opened its golf course in 1989.

Today, the golf course offers an 18-hole course, a driving range, a pro-shop and a restaurant. The estate is also used for special events such as weddings, corporate meetings and seminars.

A new impetus for the Golf d’Allot

After a first successful acquisition in the golf industry with the purchase of the Golf du Cognac in April 2022, the Loisirs Solutions group is continuing its growth dynamic with this second acquisition of the Golf du Château d’Allot in Boé. The final documents were signed on 25 April, marking the end of an era for the Tovo family.

With a strong desire to preserve the initial ambition of the Tovo family, the Loisirs Solutions group has undertaken not to alter the historical site. The completion of the last two holes of the course will be the first step taken by the new owners. They also want to support the golf association in its development. In addition, the group plans to transform the castle into an upscale hotel with a large restaurant area.

With this acquisition, Loisirs Solutions Group is ready to take on new challenges to provide an exceptional experience for golfers and visitors. They hope that these initiatives will help reinforce the role of the Golf du Château d’Allot as a must-see destination for golf enthusiasts, while offering visitors an unforgettable experience.

Loisirs Solutions asserts its new positioning

Founded in 2008, Loisirs Solutions Group operates 4-season tourist sites with the aim of developing their economic growth, visibility and notoriety while promoting the territories.

Loisirs Solutions operates, through its subsidiaries, in the field of outdoor leisure activities. The company currently operates two ski resorts in the north of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence and a golf course in the Charente region:

The Sainte-Foy Tarentaise resort, since 2011
The Val d’Allos ski area, since 2008
The Cognac golf course, since 2022

 

The Loisirs Solutions Group, which specializes in the management and development of tourism activities, has initiated a diversification strategy by carrying out its first external growth operation with the purchase and operation of the Golf du Cognac in 2022. This second acquisition in 2023 confirms the group’s “4 seasons” positioning and its desire to become a major player in the French tourism sector.

STUDIOSANTE® and SUITE DE SOIN® Gironde change owners


STUDIOSANTE® and SUITE DE SOIN® Gironde change owners

Widoowin CF supports the manager of the Gironde franchises of STUDIOSANTE and SUITE DE SOIN® in her transmission process within the framework of a takeover by a couple of individual buyers.

Hospital-to-home care coordinator: an essential link in the healing journey

STUDIOSANTE® was created in 2004 by Gérald Vignal. With his experience in medical devices and services related to home infusion, he created the outlines of a concept that has now been duplicated throughout the country. The objective is to develop hospital care procurement, at home, while offering a high-end service to patients and health professionals.

In 2015, Marion CANEZIN decided to stop working as a medical visitor to create her own company in the field of home care. First, she contracted the Gironde concession of the SUITE DE SOIN® brand to launch her activity, then she recovered the STUDIOSANTE® franchise contract initially operated by another company.

After an Average Annual Growth Rate of 40% between 2017 and 2021 and a Covid period which strongly impacts her team of about ten collaborators, she decides to exclusively mandate Widoowin CF to accompany her in her transmission process.

A couple of investors for a new project

Nicolas LETESSIER and Aurélie WALLYN, are initially the former manager and associate sales director of a company in the field of transport and the director of an equipment rental agency for the construction industry. They acquired the two operating contracts STUDIOSANTE® and SUITE DE SOIN®. With the agreement of STUDIOGROUP® they will be able to maintain the dynamics of the teams and develop the activity on the whole territory of Gironde, which until now was very little exploited.
