During Nordic’s ownership, the company completed 14 add-on acquisitions and expanded its operations outside of Europe.
Kompan’s revenues nearly doubled to reach DKK1.3bn ($240m), while its operating profits more than tripled.
The company is now majority owned by private investor Christian Dyvig, who holds a 57 per cent stake. Other shareholders include CEO Connie Astrup-Larsen and supply chain director Jesper Egelykke Jensen, who owns 10 and five per cent, respectively, and PFA pension fund with a 28 per cent stake.
NC Advisory principal and advisor to Nordic Capital Funds said, “The original goals for the investment have been achieved. Kompan is in every aspect a stronger company today with strengthened geographical presence and the best sales and supply chain functions in the industry.
“The company has gained significant market share – particularly during the last years of Nordic Capital’s ownership – and is now a truly global market leader.”
Nordic recently floated Sweden-based manufacturing component company Bufab.
