To support a large-cap private equity fund in its attempt to acquire a Sweden headquartered multi-site consumer leisure business. Our client required advisory support pre-deal, as the firm wanted to develop a deeper understanding of the market dynamics on both a Nordic regional, and global basis..
We introduced the fund to an executive with 10 years of CEO experience in a directly related, multi-site consumer leisure and entertainment business, with the ability to provide extensive commercial and operational knowledge of growing a business in the sector. This executive was retained by the client to consult and advise throughout the deal process.
Our client successfully acquired the target company with the support of the advisor we introduced. He was subsequently appointed as a Non-Executive Director of the newly-acquired company, representing the interests of the private equity fund and guiding management through the strategic growth of the company under private equity ownership.
