CAPZA and RAISE Impact have invested in Oui Care to accelerate its internal and external growth strategies

The shareholders and management of Oui Care Group have raised funds and restructured its debt for up to US$78 million (US$42 million for external growth and US$36 million in refinancing). This investment will support Oui Care and its management in this new stage of development.

Founded in the early 2000s, Oui Care is the leading personal and household services provider in France. As a multi-specialist, Oui Care covers all customers’ needs at home with a full range of services ranging from household to house cleaning services, childcare to senior and disabled care, and small to major repair works and gardening, for the benefit of more than 100,000 families. Oui Care is one of the largest recruiters in its sector, bringing together a huge task force of 18,000 employees in France, Spain, Portugal and Mexico. Since 2013, Oui Care has made six key acquisitions to expand its footprint into new geographical areas and complete its portfolio of services.

Created in 2004, CAPZA is an established European private investment platform. The company is majority-owned by its teams and supported by the AXA Group. With US$5.7 billion of assets, CAPZA offers a platform of six complementary areas of expertise: flex equity, private debt, transition3, artemid senior loans4, growth tech and mid-cap expansion. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, CAPZA has been entrusted by AXA with a US$605 million fund to enable SMEs to strengthen their balance sheets and recover from the shock after the implementation of emergency measures.
