Investing in private equity

Meridia Private Equity I

launched in




Mid-market private equity, spain

Seeking to seize the opportunity that the Spanish private equity growth market offered, we made initial strides in the sector in February 2016 through the launch of Meridia Private Equity I. This vehicle is a mid-market private equity fund targeting companies headquartered in Spain. We seek businesses with revenues of €15m- €70m across multiple sectors. We aim to join forces with existing shareholders and management teams to realise the full growth potential for each of the companies that we invest in.

We are convinced that the combination of our investment experience, robust network and deep industry knowledge is key to help strengthen the companies that we invest in.

    In September 2016 we closed the acquisition of a majority stake in Sosa Ingredients SL, a leading producer and distributor of technical food ingredients for the gastronomy segment. Sosa is the first investment of Meridia’s private equity fund, Meridia Private Equity I. Alongside Quico Sosa, Sosa’s CEO, Meridia Capital aims to accelerate the firm’s growth, both locally and globally.

    In November 2016, Savencia Gourmet, a leading French manufacturer and provider of meat, seafood and chocolate, entered the share capital of Sosa Ingredients. This entry is set to boost Sosa’s strategic and industrial plan mainly via the strengthening of its commercial reach in key gastronomy markets, as well as the enhancement of its production capacity.
