Adviser to
on renegotiating EUR 80 million senior debt portfolio
Nordhaven advised Versowood to create a stronger financial position through renegotiating its EUR 80 million senior debt portfolio. Versowood is the largest family-owned forestry company in Finland with around 800 employees and annual turnover of approximately EUR 400 million. Versowood operates with business areas in Sawn timber, Glulam products, Wood packaging, Infra, and Energy.
Coronavirus and recent strikes in the forest industry sector had significant impact on the overall market conditions. We wanted to be far-sighted and reach a funding solution that bolsters our on-going operations. We are pleased with the negotiation outcome that was achieved with Nordhaven’s extensive support throughout the process.” Says Ville Kopra, CEO of Versowood Group Oy.
Adviser to
on amendments to EUR 13,2 million senior secured bond
Nordhaven acted as financial adviser for Sotkamo Silver on amendments to its EUR 13,2 million senior secured bond. The amendments were supported in a written voting procedure by the noteholders representing over 96 % of the nominal amount of the notes. The listed parent company Sotkamo Silver AB owns, through its Sotkamo Silver Oy subsidiary, the Silver Mine in Sotkamo which started production in March 2019 and has reached full production capacity.
The approved amendment will improve our financial flexibility for the strategy execution. We are very pleased with the outcome achieved with Nordhaven’s thorough support”, says Erkki Kuronen, CEO of Sotkamo Silver. ”The bond amendment process through formal written voting procedure was executed in a very short timeframe. Nordhaven managed the whole process, including investor communications, in a highly professional manner”, adds Mikko Sopanen, CFO of Sotkamo Silver.

Incentive Advisory

We believe that the most efficient strategy execution and shareholder value creation begin when the interests of the shareholders and management are aligned.

The best way to achieve this is through equity-based long-term incentive plans that are linked to strategy execution and total returns to shareholders.

Nordhaven has sold its Incentive advisory business to Mandatum on April 30th 2021. Please see:
