We prove that in a finitely generated nonexponential group a normal subgroup with a solvable quotient is finitely generated. This extends a theorem of Milnor which has the same conclusion if the group is also assumed to be solvable. The proof uses a lemma of Milnor, but in a different, simpler, way.
