Clairfield advises Clessidra Private Equity on the acquisition of Everton

Clessidra SGR, the leading Italian private equity, acquired Everton S.p.A., the Italian producer of tea and infusions.

Founded in 2003 and controlled by the Pesenti Family via Italmobiliare, Clessidra is one of the main private equity players in the Italian mid-large segment.

Everton S.p.A. is the Italian leader in tea and infusion production. The Group has industrial presence in Italy, India and Croatia and is notably strong in private label, serving large supermarket chains worldwide. Cronos Capital Partners, the Italian club deal, acquired a majority stake of the business in 2020.

The transaction will allow Everton to further expand internationally and to continue the fast growth of the previous years.

Clairfield International acted as exclusive financial advisor to Clessidra Private Equity.

“We are happy to partner with Everton, preferred partner of modern trade players in Italy and abroad, and to foster its growth going forward.”
— Andrea Ottaviano, CEO of Clessidra
