    Cathay Capital, Bpifrance, Mérieux Equity Partners and Auriga Partners to enter in exclusive negotiations for the sale of their stake in Amplitude Laser Group to L-GAM

    Cathay Capital Private Equity (“Cathay Capital”), along with Mérieux Equity Partners, Bpifrance, and Auriga Partners, announce today that they have entered into exclusive negotiations for the sale of their stake in Amplitude Laser Group, a leading global manufacturer of ultrafast lasers for scientific, medical and industrial applications, to the Luxembourg-based investment company L-GAM.

    The official signing of the final documentation will occur after the consultation of the employees' representatives of Amplitude Laser Group, and the sale will be subject to clearance from the German antitrust authority.

    Amplitude Laser Group is today the only international specialist to cover all ultrafast laser technologies and their applications. Amplitude Laser Group provides an expertise that is uniquely global, innovative and reliable, thanks to its close to 350 employees over 3 continents and a diversity of scientific, medical and industrial clients in over 40 countries.

    Since Cathay Capital, Bpifrance, Mérieux Equity Partners and Auriga Partners joined in 2012 as majority investors along with the management, Amplitude Laser Group has transformed itself into a global leader with a truly international footprint. With the backing of its shareholders, Amplitude Laser Group successfully expanded abroad through the opening of subsidiaries in Japan, Korea, and more recently in China, as well as in the United States with the acquisition of Continuum Lasers in 2014.

    During this period, Amplitude Laser Group also deeply diversified its end markets by pioneering the use of ultrafast lasers in high growth industries such as semiconductor, advanced micromachining and particularly display where it managed to establish a significant partnership with major manufacturers. The undisputed scientific and technical skills of the group also allowed it to be involved in most of the major laser research infrastructure projects, such as the Extreme Light Infrastructure in Europe, initiated by Gérard Mourou, 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics. All these efforts contributed to the strong growth of Amplitude Laser Group, with revenues more than tripling over the period to reach more than 70 million euros by March 2019.

    Eric Mottay, CEO of Amplitude Laser Group, said:With the support of our partners, and the commitment of the team, Amplitude has grown from a laser specialist to a global leader in the field of ultrafast lasers and applications. Our expansion in the US and South Korea, our partnerships with major display and semiconductor manufacturers, as well as the rapid expansion of our China operations leave us in a very strong position for the future. We are excited about upcoming partnership with L-GAM to enter a new development phase for the company

    Fabien Wesse, Partner at Cathay Capital, declared: “Over the last 7 years, we have supported Amplitude’s development by facilitating its expansion over three continents through organic growth, diversification and build ups. With our support, the Amplitude team has managed to develop the company tremendously, and it is now ready for a new phase of growth with L-GAM as new shareholder.”

    Emmanuelle Gervais, Senior Investment Director at Bpifrance, declared:We are pleased to have played a significant role in supporting Amplitude’s development. L-GAM as a new shareholder will help the company towards continued expansion and scale.”

    Jean-François Billet, Senior Partner at Merieux Equity Partners, declared: “With L-GAM, Amplitude is well positioned to continue its positive development, that we have been happy to successfully support alongside the management during these past years.”

    Yves Alexandre and Jerome Bertrand, Partners at L-GAM, concluded: “We are delighted to support Amplitude in its new development phase. We have been particularly impressed by the company positioning as a French technological pioneer in a high growth market driven by the penetration of ultrafast lasers in new applications, and by the team’s vision and dynamism. We are committed to contribute to the international development of Amplitude and the consolidation of its position as the leader and key innovator in the ultrafast market.

    This transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals and consultations with employee representatives. The closing of the transaction should take place in the summer of 2019.

    Zongteng Group Accelerates its Development with a 700 million CNY Funding Round

    In March 2019, Zongteng Network raised 700 million CNY in a series B funding round led by Cathay Capital and Global Logistic Properties, with the participation of Eastern Bell Venture Capital.

    In the past 20 months, Zongteng has completed two rounds of financing raising a total of almost 1 billion CNY. The success of these fund raisings demonstrates the recognition by leading financial and industrial investors of Zongteng’s high value and potential.

    Founded in 2007, Zongteng is a global logistics provider and the Chinese leader in cross-border e-commerce and related services. Zongteng’s uniquely global strategy began in 2014 with brands like “Gu Cang” and “Yun Tu”. It soon became the first Chinese e-commerce company to operate warehouses overseas. Today, Zongteng provides its cost-effective and integrated services in China, the United States, Europe, Japan, or Australia to a multitude of e-commerce sellers and brands through a network of nearly 50 warehousing and transit hubs across the world, representing more than 400,000 square meters, close to 1,000 international employees, and the capacity to process over 700,000 orders every day.

    This funding round inscribes itself in the framework of a three-year “leap” strategy adapting the business model from “China-Global” to “Global-Global” which translates into international infrastructure developments and improved operational processes. Specifically, the funding round will finance process automation, extending facilities to accommodate heavy cargo and targeted business developments, particularly in the US and EU markets.

    Zuan WANG, CEO of Zongteng, stated: “The tide of globalization has opened a new era for the cross-border e-commerce industry. We have worked hard to pioneer a new model over the past four years, and we will continue to improve on existing practices, to enhance the efficiency of China’s globalization and to accelerate the full deployment of global e-commerce.”

    Zheng WANG, Partner at Cathay Capital, added: “Zongteng launched cross-border e-commerce in China. It has built a complete logistics and warehousing system across the world and accumulated incomparable expertise over the years. Zongteng is competitively positioned to leverage the strong growth of Chinese e-commerce, especially the B2C segment which is very rapidly developing. With Cathay’s support, Zongteng will further expand its footprint in Europe and the United States through business partnerships and acquisitions to become an e-commerce global leader.”
