Nordic Capital Fund VII acquired Sunrise Medical in July 2015. The aim is to accelerate Sunrise’s market leading position in premium manual wheelchairs and continue to grow in powered wheelchairs.

In April 2018, Nordic Capital’s 2008 vintage fund, Fund VII completed the transfer of its remaining nine unlisted portfolio companies including Sunrise Medical, to a continuation vehicle, Nordic Capital CV1 or "CV1". Fund VII’s original term expired in December 2017 and by this transaction, Nordic Capital took the opportunity to maximise the value creation potential of these nine companies, providing them with active support and fresh capital over an additional five-year holding period under continued Nordic Capital management.
