Growth focused ownership

Verdane approaches each investment by seeking to build value and boost growth. Taking advantage of deep industry insights and expertise, the funds have an active-ownership approach, investing significant time in understanding a company’s opportunities, challenges and growth potential. Verdane’s goal is to always deliver more than capital.

Verdane’s portfolio companies gain access to extensive networks, in the Nordics and globally, as well as key growth enablers, such as potential industrial, commercial and channel partners, management hires, board members and local advisers in new regions. This is especially important as operational and investment models in most industries are becoming global. While companies that Verdane funds invest in are most often Nordic, or originated in the Nordics, Verdane has the global expertise and insight to help companies scale internationally and identify growth opportunities outside their established geographic regions.

Devising the right exit strategy is essential to Verdane. Aligning stakeholders’ interests through an open dialogue around a timely sale is important for all parties, and achieving a successful outcome for all stakeholders upon exit typically requires careful planning over several years. Operational success is critical, but there are often other factors that define a great exit. Verdane works closely with company management to help formulate and execute a successful exit strategy.
