Translink Strempel & Co. exclusive financial advisor to Giunti Editore SpA in its transaction with Touring Club Italiano

Translink Strempel & Co. of Milan has assisted the Florence based Giunti Editore on its sale of a 51 % stake in Touring Editore to Touring Club Italiano, from whom it had acquired a controlling stake in 2006. The Giunti Group has an important history of over one hundred and fifty years in publishing and is the fourth largest operator in Italy with approximately 200 million Euro in revenues.

With this transaction, Touring Club Italiano brings under its full control this historic publishing side of its business while continuing to maintain an important collaboration with Giunti on the promotion and distribution of its publications. Founded in 1894, Touring Club Italiano is the oldest association active in the fields of tourism, culture and the environment with its famous guides.

The team of Translink Strempel who advised the seller was composed of Senior Partner Gianni Laudato and Associate Partners Gianni Campici and Matteo Paggi. The legal advisor to the seller was the firm of Studio Legale Dotti.

To date, Translink Strempel and other international offices of Translink Corporate Finance have acted as advisors in over 35 Mergers & Acquisitions during 2013.
