December 2005: Euroloc is the second largest equipment rental company in Spain, with 2006 revenues and EBITDA projected to be €75 million and €35 million respectively. This transaction follows a period of over two years in which SOCIOS FINANCIEROS has been collaborating with Advent in its analysis of acquisition opportunities within the Spanish equipment rental market.

Furthermore, this transaction represents one of the largest completed by a private equity fund in a non-competitive process to date within the Spanish market. SOCIOS FINANCIEROS originated the opportunity, identifying the possibility of a negotiated deal between Advent and Euroloc’s shareholders, and subsequently advised Advent on all aspects of the transaction’s execution.
