  • 07/2018 - Adviso Partners advises Caliceo's executive shareholders on the sale of the group to the Ekkio Capital investment fund

    The CALICEO Group, created in 1996 by the PONTEINS family, is now positioning itself as the French specialist in aquatic centres with a unique concept of well-being and aquatic fitness.

    The CALICEO centres offer a top-of-the-range setting for balneotherapy, spa and treatment/beauty activities, and offer three types of services: aquatic relaxation areas, aquatic fitness areas and spa beauty massage areas.

    Located on the outskirts of large French conurbations in large and easily accessible locations, the Group currently operates six centres (Toulouse, Perpignan, Pau, Lyon, Nantes, Bordeaux) and welcomes over 1.2 million visitors each year.

    With steady growth since its creation, the group posted revenue of nearly €17 million in 2017 and enjoys a good level of profitability.

    Advised by ADVISO PARTNERS, the Ponteins family has transferred all its shares in a transaction including the six operating companies of the CALICEO sites as well as the property companies that that own their buildings.

    This change of shareholder is taking place around a project to deploy the concept, now proven, in new conurbations. An expert in the tourism & leisure sector (already a shareholder of PARISCITYVISION, THOIRY, HEALTHCITY, etc.), EKKIO CAPITAL will lead this ambitious transformation project alongside Marc LEONARD, a tourism and leisure professional, who will take over the chairmanship of CALICEO HOLDING and Sandrine GLEIZE, current Chief Operating Officer.
