Share

Rubis Terminal, a joint venture between I Squared Capital, an international infrastructure fund manager, and Rubis, a French listed company specializing in the storage of petroleum products, announces the acquisition of TEPSA, a Spain-based leading bulk liquid storage operator. The agreement was signed today with a planned completion upon approval from the Spanish administrative and antitrust authorities.

TEPSA, controlled by Pétrofrance S.A., operates four coastal terminals located in Barcelona, ​​Bilbao, Tarragona and Valencia with 912,000 m3 of storage capacity dedicated to chemical, biofuel and petroleum products. TEPSA generated 52 million euros of revenues in 2019 and has significant growth potential resulting from its strong positioning in the Spanish market and expansion plans already underway.

This transformational acquisition, which increases the size of Rubis Terminal by around 30%, is the first since the Rubis – I Squared Capital joint venture was formed in April 2020.

This is a strategic transaction for Rubis Terminal, creating a platform to capture product flows in the Mediterranean region, as well as to explore an entrance into high-growth markets in Latin America. In addition to diversifying Rubis Terminal’s geographic footprint, this acquisition also increases the relative weight of the growing chemical sector, where commercial synergies are expected with Rubis Terminal’s existing positions in France and in the Amsterdam / Rotterdam / Antwerp area (known as the ARA area).

Sadek Wahba, Chairman and Managing Partner of I Squared Capital: “This acquisition shows the strength of the partnership between a large industrial group and an independent, global infrastructure investment manager. We are growing the size of Rubis Terminal by a third, while diversifying its activity, and opening up to other very promising markets. This is just the start: we have great ambitions for our French company, Rubis Terminal, to join the world leaders in the sector in the months and years to come."

Gilles Gobin, founder and Managing Partner of Rubis: "This acquisition is only the first step in a strategy which further consolidates Rubis Terminal's leadership position, while diversifying its activities and its footprint. This first acquisition demonstrates the positive dynamism brought by our Franco-American cooperation, based on the common objective to drive long-term growth."

Bruno Hayem, CEO of Rubis Terminal: "TEPSA is very close to Rubis Terminal in terms of corporate culture and the high quality of its assets, its leaders and its teams. This strategic alliance will bring significant growth potential and the capacity to strengthen the services offered to our clients."

Jacques Nahmias, Chairman of Pétrofrance S.A.: "The sale of TEPSA represents an important milestone in the company's history. This transaction allows TEPSA to join a group with an international presence, with common values and which will support its continued development in Spain as well as outside its natural borders."

BourseInside, The New Media Platform That Finds Attractive Investments for Curious Investors22.6.2021 18:08:00 EEST | Press release

On the stock market, small caps continue to outperform. Since 1926, they have posted a performance of 12.1% per year, in contrast to 9.7% for large caps. And yet these so-called "small stocks" have been largely ignored by the stock market. They are rarely covered by analysts, shunned by the mainstream stock-market press and neglected by funds. Nevertheless, they are of great interest to investors, in particular those who have recently taken to investing in the stock market in order to grow their savings (16% increase in investors in 2020). For half of these newcomers, investing in the stock market gives them the opportunity to support the French economy by supporting the growth of our future champions and to channel their savings into a more sustainable and fairer model. In order to further strengthen this link between the French people and the development of our national companies, we decided to create BourseInside, the first web/TV/newsletter media platform, fully dedicated to listed
