The jury's motivation read:

"If there was a 'region of Europe' category it should be the Nordics; the region has been on fire. But one firm really stood out. The winner did three deals and three exits in the period. One of which was the EUR 9.6 billion staggering sale of Nycomed. The winner is Nordic Capital"

Nordic Capital is very pleased to be presented with this prestigious award as recognition of the deals completed during the last 12 months.
