Platina Finance exited its 25% share in Société Française d’Eoliennes with the sale of the company to Sogernia. Lazard was appointed by Platina and other investors to organise the auction process which saw around 20 offers being placed for Société Française d’Eoliennes. The deal with Sogernia was based on a valuation of the company at around EUR 345m which would see Platina recoup over EUR 86m from their initial investment in 2003.
This is the second deal inked by the GP via Wisequity V, which closed on its €260m hard-cap in July 2019
