FGvW advises ENGIE and SAFRAN on 20 million Euro financing round in e-fuels pioneer Ineratec

French groups ENGIE and SAFRAN were advised by FGvW on the 20 million euro Series A financing round of Ineratec GmbH. ENGIE and SAFRAN each invested in Ineratec through their investment companies ENGIE New Ventures (ENV) and Safran Corporate Ventures. In addition to ENGIE and SAFRAN, five other investors, including the German MPC Group, participated in the financing. The growth capital will enable Ineratec to further expand its production of carbon-neutral synthetic fuels and plan a pioneering industrial plant in Frankfurt Höchst.

Ineratec GmbH, which was founded in 2014 out of KIT and is headquartered in Karlsruhe, Germany, is a leading manufacturer of modular chemical plants for the production of synthetic fuels, which are used in aviation, among other applications. In addition, the plants can be used to produce synthetic natural gas, chemical feedstocks and methanol.

Headquartered in La Défense in the French capital Paris, ENGIE is a listed energy group with more than 150,000 employees and annual sales of around 60 billion euros. ENV is an ENGIE investment fund endowed with 180 million euros that invests in startups relevant to the energy transition.

Safran, another listed technology group headquartered in Paris, is a leading supplier to the international aerospace industry and generates annual sales of around 16.5 billion euros with approximately 80,000 employees.

Engie and Safran were advised by our M&A team led by Barbara Mayer and Christian Burmeister.
