Georges Croix

Georges Croix, Chairman and CEO of Prosodie

"The joint project between Prosodie and Apax France was both profitable and effective. During the five years of the LBO, the company gained a new positioning, a sustainable organization and recurring cash flows. Business revenues grew strongly, EBITDA more than doubled and the number of employees grew 3% a year. It is worth noting that Apax France was content to let Prosodie's management oversee the sales process, choose the timing of the sale and select their preferred buyer, all without requiring Prosodie to launch an open auction. This was important because it enabled us to choose the best solution to secure Prosodie's long term future and protect its integrity and identity."

Erik Ceuppens, Chairman of Vizada

"Apax acted as a catalyst to help realise the strategic ambition of our management team, which was to remain a key actor in a consolidating industry. With its strategic approach, financing expertise and courage, Apax gathered the essential elements for a successful build-up strategy: creating a world leading company in satellite communications services. Apax's cooperation with the executive team further developed our management skills. The alignment of objectives and focus on value creation proved a powerful combination. Directing management to act on these priorities really made the difference and enabled us to separate the essentials from the noise."
