RENÉ LEZARD: EXTRAORDINARY SHAREHOLDERS’ MEETING APPROVES THE CAPITAL INCREASE WITH ENTRY OF CEMSEL TEKSTIL

Munich, 20th December 2018. On December 17, 2018, the extraordinary shareholders’ meeting of RENÉ LEZARD Mode AG approved a capital increase. After the successfully performed increase of capital, Cemsel Tekstil San. ve Tic. A.S. will hold 60% of the shares of RENE LEZARD Mode AG, acting as an anchor investor.


In the course of an international M&A process which started in summer 2018, the premium fashion retailer gained the Turkish textile producer Cemsel as a new majority shareholder.

Whilst key competencies concerning brand, product and sales remain unchanged in the headquarters in Schwarzach, synergies regarding the purchase and supply of goods will be increased and especially the procurement will be adjusted. “We are confident that the newly appointed measures will positively affect the future of RENÉ LEZARD. To achieve this, it is necessary that the existing shareholders waive their subscription rights regarding the capital increase and Cemsel receives 60% of the shares”, says Isabella Hierl, CEO of RENÉ LEZARD Mode AG.

ACXIT Capital Partners advised RENÉ LEZARD Mode AG on the successful search for an investor and the execution of the transaction.
