Abstract: We will prove that if M is a complete, simply connected riemannian manifold with sectional curvature K, $ a \leqslant K < 0$, for $ a > 0$ and $ \Gamma $ a properly discontinuous group of isometries of M acting freely on M with volume $ (M/\Gamma )$ finite, then $ M/\Gamma $ is compact if and only if $ \Gamma $ consists of hyperbolic elements.
