Search for acquisition candidates

Assistance to PE, VC and industrial investors

Investment in Norwegian enterprises

Challenges

  • Many international "Private Equity" and "Venture Capital" firms do not have local representatives in Norway, and therefore do not have in-depth knowledge of the market.
  • For such businesses, it is time-consuming and expensive to identify and negotiate "one-on-one" with companies in Norway that one would potentially invest in.
  • Dedicating or hiring new employees to manage and develop Norwegian portfolio companies may not be cost effective until a significant investment portfolio is in place.
  • Industrial buyers with or without local market knowledge want assistance in finding good acquisition candidates.

Solution

  • We can assist with the search for, development and management of investment candidates and portfolio companies in Norway.
