The capital increase by Tikehau Capital for 610 million euro currently in process at the Paris Stock Exchange will fund also initiatives in Italy, where the French asset manager has already invested in private debt and real estate and where it is intending to expand also in the private equity. It’s not a case that Tokehau allied with Italmobiliare to launch an offer for the shares of Fondo Italiano d’Investimento. “We want to grow in Italy in all the asset classes and we’re aiming at investing at least 1 billion euro”, have said indeed to MF-Milano Finanza Luca Bucelli and Ignazio Rocco di Torrepadula, respectively Country Manager for Italy and Senior Advisor of Tikehau. “We’re ready to catch any opportunity of growth”. So, faded the Fondo Italiano option, new hypothesis emerge. The first regards the Quadrivio sgr report, but Bucelli and Rocco pass over on the matter:”We cannot comment: in any case, it’s not the only opportunity on the market”. Tikehau Capital made its debut last March on the list of Euronext Paris. The capital increase, which initially was meant to be of 500 million and that could reach 700 million with the exercise of the greenshoe, will end on the 17th July and it has already collected the participations of Tikehau Capital Advisors and Fakarava Capital, already shareholders, which have underwritten only a part of the shares they were entitled to for a total of 165 million euro, whereas among the investors there are Fonds Stratégique de Participations, Esta Investments (Temasek Group), Macsf Épargne Retraite, Macif, Axa Investment Managers, Créit Mutuel Arkéa, Ffp Invest, Amundi Ventures, Compagnie Financière Luxembourgeoise and Zv Holding, which have invested for a total of 390 million.
