Bridgepoint Development Capital exits Siblu with sale to Stirling Square Capital Partners

Siblu, the largest operator of holiday parks in France, has been sold by Bridgepoint Development Capital (‘BDC’) to Stirling Square Capital Partners for an undisclosed amount.

The company owns and operates a portfolio of large, high end holiday parks located in attractive tourist areas in France where it is now the leader in owner-occupier model holiday parks.

Under BDC ownership, the business has pursued a growth strategy through the acquisition of six parks and conversion of parks from the holiday hire to the caravan ownership model. Today it has 14 camping and caravan holiday villages, with in excess of 8,000 pitches across France in Normandy, the Brittany coastline, the west coast of France, the Loire Valley and Mediterranean coasts.

Mark Stroud, a partner of Bridgepoint Development Capital, said: 'This was an opportunity to support an experienced team to acquire and transform holiday parks to the owner model in a fragmented market to become the leader in its field. This has now happened and the company is preparing for its next stage of development.'

Julien Horreard of Stirling Square Capital Partners said of the acquisition: 'Siblu's unique business model combined with its leadership position are attractive fundamentals and provide an excellent platform from which to grow the business. Together with the management team, Stirling Square Capital Partners is committed to implementing an ambitious growth plan for the future and we look forward to being a part of Siblu's continued success.'

The investment in Siblu was made originally by Hermes Private Equity but was managed by Bridgepoint Development Capital.

Advisers involved in the transaction included:

Bridgepoint Development Capital: Canaccord (M&A); Travers Smith (legal)

Management: Delaby & Dorison (Advisory); Norton Rose (legal)
