Solid shareholder structure

It is in difficult times that we truly appreciate past decisions. The groupʼs increased solidarity with its employees is the result of capital mainly held by its management (96.5% of the capital is held by over 400 managers), the rest of the shares belonging to trusted private investors.

Newrest is the only global catering company with almost zero net debt.

The company therefore exercises control over its strategic choices, a guarantee of its historical agility. We continue to favour long-term, sustainable development over short-term profitability.

Newrest is committed to continuously improving and innovating the services it offers to its clients, as well as to the well-being and progress of its employees and executives. Sustainable development and adherence to social values lie at the heart of the company’s ethos and activities.
