Nordic Capital acquired Cint in February 2016 with the ambition to support continued accelerated growth in an industry where consumers are becoming increasingly mobile and digital, and brand marketing spend is shifting to online.

During Nordic Capital’s ownership, Cint has grown substantially across all regions, and in the U.S. in particular. North America is today the largest market for Cint. As a technology leader in its industry, Cint invests significantly in its software and products to support its customers and expand into new end markets. Cint has proven its scalable business model, leveraging cloud based multi-tenant software and no touch programmatic products.

Cint was listed on the Nasdaq Stockholm exchange in February 2021. Nordic Capital remains a significant shareholder in the company with approximately 21% of the shares (as per September 2021).
