NextStage AM, one of the pioneers of Growth Capital in France, is taking a new step with increased participation of the partners in the capital of the company alongside its two historical founders. At the same time, all NextStage AM employees become shareholders following a shareholding operation reserved for employees.
For 20 years, NextStage AM has supported SMEs and ETIs in growing markets by providing its expertise as an investor-entrepreneur. In order to further establish its future development, NextStage AM is strengthening its partnership. The partners thus strengthen their participation in the capital of the company in a dynamic of greater collegiality, thus demonstrating their desire to accelerate the growth of the company and the solidity of its model.
Convinced that sharing value is at the heart of performance, NextStage AM also wanted to involve all of its employees in the dynamics of the company. In recognition of their contribution, NextStage AM proposed a shareholding operation reserved for employees through a capital increase for the benefit of a dedicated FCPE set up within the Company Savings Plan. All employees have chosen to subscribe to the offer and are now shareholders of NextStage AM.
"We are very pleased to anchor our partnership with the shared ambition of amplifying the growth of NextStage AM at a time when private equity has more than ever its role to play in supporting the reindustrialization of our country and the various environmental transitions, digital technologies and smart health, which our SMEs and ETIs are faced with. It is important to be united around the vision we have of our business, the culture and the common platform that we share on a daily basis. It was also important to us to be able to thank all the teams for their contribution by involving them even more in our value creation and our development prospects", declare Grégoire Sentilhes and Jean-David Haas, respectively Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NextStage AM.
