Clairfield advises Gaïana, backed by Meanings Capital Partners, on the acquisition of Tipsa

Gaïana, France’s leading publisher of vertical software for the agrifood sector (wines and spirits, horticulture, agriculture, and beverage distribution), acquired the Spanish company Tipsa, a publisher of business software dedicated to the wine sector.

Founded in 1987 and based near Bordeaux, Gaïana is a French software publisher dedicated to wine, spirits, horticulture, and agriculture markets. The company’s software offering covers specialised business solutions, regulatory management, reporting, customer management, e-commerce, and business intelligence. The Group is majority owned by Meanings Capital Partners, alongside the management team.

Founded in 1992 and based in Logroño (La Rioja region, Spain), Tipsa is run by Juan Carlos Herce Rodriguez and Manuel Saenz Judez. The company offers a range of business applications (ERP, CRM, BI, e-commerce), mainly for Spanish and Portuguese customers in the wine sector. The solutions developed by Tipsa are marketed in SaaS mode.
The acquisition of Tipsa allows Gaïana to consolidate its position as European leader in the W&S solutions market (the Spanish market is the third largest in the world behind France and Italy) and to expand its range of SaaS solutions based on Microsoft Business Central, perfectly aligned with Ayanet (previous acquisition in Spain advised by Clairfield in 2023), whose solutions target the agricultural sector.

Clairfield International acted as exclusive financial advisor to Gaïana.
