Eight BayBG companies among Bavaria’s Best 50
Munich — “For years, the award ceremony ‘Bavaria’s Best 50’ has also been a proof of BayBG’s performance,” says Peter Pauli, spokesman of BayBG’s management, about the awarding of Bavaria’s fastest-growing medium-sized companies. Once again, three current portfolio companies of BayBG were awarded: Medical technology specialist MMM, mountain bike manufacturer YT Industries and the Ziegler Group (wood industry).
Another five award-winning companies, including for example the Nuremberg IT company noris network or the Lower Franconian IFSYS GmbH, were accompanied on their growth path over a longer period of time with investment capital from BayBG.
Peter Pauli: “Particularly in phases of strong growth, equity capital is an important building block that gives SMEs room to maneuver and additional financing potential. A study by PricewaterhouseCoopers illustrates the outstanding importance that SMEs attach to equity capital. According to this study, 63 percent of family entrepreneurs say that equity-financed companies grow at an above-average rate.”
Bavaria’s Best 50′ is awarded to medium-sized companies that have been able to increase their workforce and sales the most in recent years.
