For the first time, Natixis Equity Capital Markets team (ECM) was granted an award by GlobalCapital as "Best Bank for Privatisations" in 2019 in the EMEA equity awards.
This distinction rewards our achievements in the context of the IPO of Française des Jeux (FDJ) on both institutional and retail tranches, together with our partner ODDO BHF and the BPCE teams which proved instrumental to win and execute this textbook mandate.
This IPO, led by Natixis as a global coordinator on behalf of FDJ and their shareholder APE (French government shareholding agency), wins big at the GlobalCapital awards, being "ECM deal of the year", "IPO of the year" et "ECM deal of the year in France".
The ECM team is also distinguished as the no.3 ECM Bank of the year in France and Benelux, and the only one involved in all French deals awarded by GlobalCapital.
Several equity issues led by our team on behalf of our clients are also rewarded, notably for Neoen ("most impressive sustainable deal of the year"), Tikehau, Atos, Worldline and Arabian Centres. We are particularly grateful to our French and EMEA clients for their renewed trust.
