Walder Wyss: Cendres+Métaux acquires Lauener & Cie

In a strategic move, the Cendres+Métaux Group has successfully acquired 100% ownership of Lauener & Cie, a Boudry NE-based company specializing in high-precision turned parts for the watchmaking and medical technology sectors. The founders, Emmanuel and Caroline Raffner, with 14 years at the helm, decided to sell the company. CIC Capital (Suisse), a subsidiary of Groupe Crédit Mutuel Equity, joined as a minority financial investor.

Walder Wyss advised the sellers in this matter. The team was led by partner Luc Defferrard (corporate M&A, pictured) and further included associates Ken Savioz and Valentine Schnyder (both corporate M&A) and Sara Razgallah (associate, real estate). The transaction was expertly led by Fabienne Mazières, Thomas Bitzi, and Valentin Koun on behalf of CIC Capital (Suisse).
