Nordic Capital partnered with the founding family in 2019.

A supplementary investment was made in 2021, when Nordic Capital acquired an additional shareholding from the founding family. Since then, the Company has benefited from continued investments in Research and Development, cognitive computing capabilities, global delivery, sustainable operations, and commercial excellence.
