” Such movements are not so frequent », Indicates an investment banker. In 2019, only 5 companies had made this choice (including Le Tanneur, DNX, LDLC), and 3 in 2018. Usually, movements tend to be in the opposite direction: “LCompanies like to switch from Euronext Growth, a market dedicated to SMEs, to the regulated market of Euronext. This proves that the company has grown well. In short, it’s a sign of success », Explains the same banker. Euronext Growth (new name of Alternext, since June 2017) is indeed a market dedicated to SMEs which offers an alternative to companies in their early stages of development.
