Oberthur Group, with 35M€ of turnover, is a leader in the French market of back-to-school supplies, stationery and writing implements for professionals, as well as the general public. Oberthur sells its articles through super/hypermarkets and traditional stationery stores.
Over the last few years, the Group has strongly developed its licensed products, allowing the company to become one of the pioneers in school products aimed at school children and teenagers today.
In October 2009, TCR Capital acquired Group Oberthur through a primary LBO in association with the management team. TCR Capital wishes to pursue the development of its historical activities while providing the requisite financial resources to assist management in increasing its business portfolio via organic or external growth.
