Kartesia is proud to receive one of the most prestigious and selective awards in the industry: Creditflux Best European direct lending fund 2018 for Kartesia Credit Opportunities III (KCO III).
Kartesia, the European specialist provider of capital solutions for small and mid-sized companies, is proud to announce the completion of its first investment in the Baltics with the acquisition, alongside the management, of Groglass®. Groglass® is one of the world’s leading developers and manufacturers of anti-reflective and other high-performance coatings on glass and acrylic for various industries, including high-end electronic and static displays, picture framing, museum showcases and construction materials.
Kartesia, the European specialist provider of capital solutions for small and mid-sized companies, is pleased to announce its investment alongside Florac in BricoPrive.com.
The deal was led by Matthieu Delamaire, Managing Partner, and Kartesia acted as sole unitranche provider and minority shareholder alongside Florac, Julien Boué and Marc Leverger, co-founders of Brico Privé.
After being named Lender of the Year in 2016 by Private Debt Investor, a highly regarded magazine within the European private debt industry, Kartesia has come away this year with not one but two prestigious awards: Lender of the Year Europe 2017 and Junior Lender of the Year Europe 2017. While we are proud of the peer recognition, these awards are especially important because they truly vindicate Kartesia’s innovative investment model.
In October 2017, Kartesia closed a €15 million investment in a unitranche facility to finance the management buyout (MBO) of Sales Performance International (SPI). This concluded an intense collaboration between Kartesia and SPI’s management in which Kartesia’s comprehensive solution and reliability made all the difference.
With an eye to the future, SPI’s managers take their destiny in hand
Jaime Prieto, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Kartesia, was invited to speak at this year’s SuperReturn conference (26 February – 1 March). The annual event, held at the InterContinental Hotel in Berlin, brings together over 2,500 participants, including institutional investors, private equity and private debt fund managers.
Kartesia gave Father Christmas a little help at the end of last year to make sure that the kids at the Maison d’Enfants Reine Marie-Henriette children’s residential facility enjoyed a magical Christmas in 2017. Kartesia took the budget earmarked for its staff Christmas gifts and turned it over to La Pouponnière, which is the part of the facility that looks after very young children. This helped to pay for gifts for the 32 young residents, who found presents from their Santa lists waiting for them under the Christmas tree.
