Invexans manages Quiñenco’s interest in the multinational French company Nexans, one of the largest cable producers worldwide. As of December 2017 it owns a 28.5% stake, thus being a long term and reference shareholder. Quiñenco's subsidiary Techpack has a 0.53% stake in Nexans, thus in all Quiñenco's stake at year end 2017 was 29.05%.
Invexans, controlled by Quiñenco (with 98.7% of the company as of December 31, 2017), adopted this name in March 2013, after Madeco divided its industrial businesses (flexible packaging, brass mills, and profiles) from its investment in Nexans, with the aim to better focus management’s efforts. Its investment in the French multinational dates back to 2008. Since then, and given the firm conviction in the business developed by Nexans, Invexans has concentrated on consolidating its participation and contributing to the development and growth of the company.
Invexans is represented on Nexans’ Board by three members, and also has a member on the Compensations, Designations and Corporate Governance Committee, the Strategy Committee, and on the Accounting and Audit Committee.
Invexans has thus consolidated a significant influence on one of the leading actors in the cable industry worldwide, that manufactures high value added products, dedicates significant resources to research and development, and counts with relevant global exposure. Nexans employs over 26,300 people and its consolidated sales were €6,370 billion in 2017.
Invexans’ shares are traded on the Chilean stock market. Nexans’ shares are traded on Euronext Paris.
