Eurofarad, Exxelia Group’s parent company, was founded in 1965. It expanded rapidly around its main activity of designing and manufacturing passive components (ceramic capacitors, plastic film, mica, filters, position sensors, rotary joints and precision mechanics). Exxelia was acquired through an LBO led by LBO France alongside management in December 2010. As part of the transaction, Mezzanis acted as lead-arranger of €25 million in mezzanine debt.
