Ethica Corporate Finance advised the shareholders of Sebach and Armal, companies based in Certaldo (near Florence), with a leading position in the rental and production of mobile chemical toilets, which since 2010 have been owned by the Ylda Group holding company, with consolidated revenues of approx. EUR 50 mln in the sale to the English private equity fund Alchemy (through the fund Alchemy Special Opportunities Fund III LP).

Sebach, founded in 1987 in Certaldo (FI) and leader in the rental of mobile bathrooms, has a network of ca. 80 dealers and more than 1,500 rental points in Italy, handling over 25,000 toilets a day. Since 2011 it has also been based in France, since 2013 in India and since 2016 in Morocco. Armal, founded in 1987 in Certaldo and active in the production and sale of portable toilets, today has a production capacity of about 360 portable toilets per day and exports its products to more than 130 countries worldwide.

The closing of the transaction, which took place on July 30th, will give the green light to the group for investments and acquisitions both in Italy and in France, with the aim of increasing the leadership of the brands at a global level in the portable toilets sector and in other sectors.

Antonella Diana, CEO of Ylda Group, comments “This acquisition represents a new course for our group and will mark a starting point to continue to grow and expand both in our and in complementary sectors, also through new acquisitions”.
