Groupe Akifer Acquired by Groupe UDA

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton is proud to have supported Groupe Akifer Inc. as exclusive financial advisor for the business sale process.

Groupe Akifer Inc. is the result of the merger of two companies in 2005: HGE Consultants, founded in 1982, and Mission Environnement, founded in 1999, to create MissionHGE offering integrated hydrogeological, environmental and rehabilitation services to contaminated sites. In 2014, MissionHGE changed its name to Akifer.

Akifer provides know-how and custom solutions to hydrogeological and environmental issues facing industries, businesses, cities and government. For nearly 40 years, their multidisciplinary team of professionals has been providing hydrogeological expertise. They offer various solutions to meet the needs of water and soil research, inspection, analysis and treatment.

Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton acted as exclusive financial advisor to Groupe Akifer.

Groupe Akifer wished to undertake a confidential process and be accompanied at all stages of the process, including the final transaction. The Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton team carefully explained the key steps that a transaction would involve and the reasonable time frame for achieving the goal.

The consultant identified the strategic buyer early in the process. After a successful analysis and meetings, the client chose this buyer that shared the same corporate culture and complementary expertise.
