Sekri Valentin Zerrouk (SVZ), and more particularly Franck Sekri, partner in charge of the corporate team, Céline Raynal and Antoine Moulin, associates, are advising BasicNet in the purchase of the share capital of K-Way France.

K-Way France has 36 points of sale with a mix of branches and affiliates, a presence in department stores as well as a network of 180 multi-brands throughout France.

The K-Way brand was born in 1965 in France and was acquired in 2004 by the Italian company BasicNet, which also owns Kappa, Superga and Sebago.

BasicNet, whose consolidated turnover was 296 million euros last year, has decided in 2021 to expand the brand’s potential. The purpose of this transaction is to consolidate the growth of the K-Way brand, to anticipate the next phase of investments for the brand’s growth, and to help advance K-Way’s global projects.
