Exit of Chryso, June 2017


Chryso: a leading international producer of additives and admixtures which improve the performance of concrete and cement, and construction systems for the repair and maintenance of buildings.

Thomas Boulman, Partner Mid Cap: "Chryso has increased its EBITDA by nearly 50% in less than three years. That was no accident. The technical quality of its products and the power of its R&D had a lot to do with it. The geographic choices which were made for its international development and the emphasis placed on acquisitions in growth regions are also part of the explanation. It’s because of this that we are delighted to have been able to provide the company with technical assistance and essential financing."
