Nordic Capital awarded Exit of the Year
Apr 20, 2012
Nordic Capital was awarded Exit of the Year at the
"Riskkapital 2012" awards, hosted by the Swedish Private Equity
& Venture Capital Association, on April 19.
The awarded deal was the EUR 9.6 billion sale of Nycomed to
Takeda, representing the largest private equity sale of the year
and the third largest globally in the past 20 years.
The jury's motivation read;
"With a clear growth strategy and a strong vision, this year's
winner completed a remarkable journey together with its portfolio
company. During the ownership period, the company has grown to
become a major international player that has a broad and strong
market presence with operations in 70 countries. In a tough exit
market, the owners conducted an exit process which resulted in one
of the biggest deals in Europe."
