Liedekerke successfully assisted CGE Partners on the Belgian aspects of its acquisition of Enhesa.

Headquartered in Brussels, Enhesa is the global market leader in environmental, health and safety (EHS) intelligence and content. The company’s platform provides information services and actionable content based on a recurring subscription model. The company has experienced fast growth rates over the recent years, as EHS regulations have increased worldwide, and given the heightened global focus on EHS due to the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for EHS services is expected to soar.

CGE is a mid-market private equity firm founded in October 2019. The firm raised €440mn to invest in strongly performing European companies with a global reach. This deal marks the first acquisition for CGE.

CGE commented: "Enhesa represents a perfect fit for CGE's strategy of investing in top-performing businesses that fulfil mission-critical services in the tech-enabled business services sector. Enhesa's position as the global leader in EHS regulatory compliance will form a strong platform for targeted M&A activity, and we look forward to supporting Peter (CEO) and his team to consolidate the company's market leadership and drive further growth."

The Liedekerke team was led by partners Christel Van den Eynden and Wim Dedecker, who were supported by senior attorney Jan Vreys, and associates Ellen Vermeire and Jakob Mulier. Our Finance Team with Freya Mareels, Sylvain Guéret and Reinout Vrielinck worked on the financing of the transaction.

Travers Smith led by Partners Ian Keefe and Lucie Cawood provided cross-jurisdictional coordination. Choate Hall & Stuart provided US law advice led by principal Rebecca Wilsker. The sellers were advised by Allen & Overy.
