A LONG-TERM PLAYER
Right from the start the founders of AtriA Capital Partenaires wanted to establish a lasting presence in French private equity. True pioneers in France, our founders built a team with a combination of veteran and younger professionals that offer a complementary range of skills and experience. AtriA's exclusive focus on French mid-cap firms and its performance contribute to this aim.
A SHORT HISTORY
In 1999, AtriA Capital Partenaires was founded by pioneers of French private equity, taking over the management of the portfolio of CFI, a subsidiary of CIC. They launched AtriA Private Equity Fund, a 125-million euro fund which was rapidly deployed, as it invested in 14 mid-cap growth companies in four years.
In 2004, the team launched AtriA Private Equity Fund II, a 196-million euro fund that also targeted growth companies with an enterprise value of 20 to 200 million euros and which invested in eleven mid-cap growth companies in three years.
In 2006, AtriA Capital Partenaires raised its third LBO fund, AtriA Private Equity Fund III with commitments of Ä300 million. The Fund started investing in January 2007, and owns 7 mid-cap growth companies with an enterprise value from Ä30 to Ä200 million.
In 2012, AtriA Capital Partenaires joined the Naxicap Partners group, one of the most active players in the French mid-cap market. This partnership enables AtriA to benefit from the expertise of Naxicapís 35 investment professionals and boosts Naxicapís development in third-party management, as AtriA brings with it a wide panel of quality investors.
