LMBO group was launched in January 1986, with the creation by Gérard Favarel of a venture capital company - Enterprise SCR - an investment company specialised in the creation of firms.

With the launch in 1989 of a management company - LMBO CONSEIL - and an investment firm - LMBO FINANCE SCR - Groupe LMBO has become increasingly specialised in LMBO operations for French, family-owned, mid market firms, with a particular focus on the retail and service industry.

Since its creation, Groupe LMBO has carried out about 60 creations or transfers of firms, setting a priority on their development and value enhancement.

Groupe LMBO aims to advance the best proposals for the value enhancement of firms. To this end, its strategy is based on a code of ethics, as it believes that the absence of any possible divergence or conflict of interest is key to the success of all firms.
