Nordic Venture Partners exits after 8 years of ownership
GCA Altium advised Nordic Venture Partners in the successful exit of its 34% holding in Targit to a group of five managers, for a consideration of USD 10m.
Denmark-based venture capital firm NVP first invested in the company in 2003, and put much emphasis into developing Targit’s products.
With Nordic Venture Partners’ backing, Targit has quadrupled its revenue, and the company is self-financing since 2005 (with a 10% EBT margin in 2010).
Targit also entered the Gartner Magic Quadrant and has become an internationally renowned business with 4,000 customers and 300,000 users.
The minority sale/replacement capital transaction followed a process where GCA Altium advised the Targit board on a range of strategic options.
GCA Altium acted as sole advisor to the sellers.
