Despite this increasing trend, private equity funding of French companies is still unsufficient. Indeed,“if the number of French SMEs is regularaly increasing, comparison with other EU member states, notably Germany, reveals that these SMEs [...] cannot develop properly as a result of a lack of equity ” (Parliamentary Report on SMEs financing dated 24 March 2009). Parliamentary Report on SMEs financing dated 24 March 2009 "real financing "gap" in seed and growth fundings: it is a lot harder to raise € 300 000 at a preliminary stage than a M€ 10 investment in the expansion phase” (above mentioned Parliamentary Report).
