Nordhaven welcomes Capillar Advisory as its new partner firm in Sweden

15 may 2019

Nordhaven Corporate Finance is pleased to announce a partnership in Sweden with the Stockholm-based independent M&A advisory firm Capillar Advisory. Capillar also becomes Clairfield International’s new exclusive partner for Sweden, joining Nordhaven in Finland and Norway as well as Nordic M&A in Denmark to provide unique mid-market coverage of the entire Nordic market. The new joint Nordic team advised a total of 32 M&A transactions in 2018 and was positioned as the top independent financial advisor.

Capillar Advisory, a leading M&A firm in Sweden in the mid-market segment, provides M&A advisory services specializing in crossborder and complex processes. Capillar Advisory was founded by its five partners, Johan Nylén, Johan Säll, Patrik Egeland, Mikael Ludvigson and Petter Håkanson, with the buyback of UB Capital’s M&A practice from United Bankers, and rebranded to Capillar Advisory in 2018. Its network of senior advisors complements the team of 15 professionals, ensuring industrial insight and connections to key players.

The Capillar Advisory team has completed more than 250 transactions. Capillar’s recent notable transactions include:

• Advising LRF on the divestment of LRF Konsult to Altor and follow-up transactions in the accounting sector.

• Consolidation of 23 companies in the IT services space on behalf of FSN Capital.

• Consolidation of three Swedish infrastructure services companies on behalf of Triton.

• Acquisition of Frösunda Group, a specialized care provider, by Adolfsen Group.

• Sale of Duell-Bike Center, a motorcycle gear importer and distributor, to Sponsor Capital.

The Capillar team has also set up Capillar Equity, an investment fund with a focus on small cap Nordic businesses in need of growth equity or transformational capital.

Our team has years of experience on the Swedish market and we are excited to create value together with Nordhaven and other Clairfield partners in this next step of our firm’s development. We look forward to offering our clients true local access to all Nordic markets and globally at the highest levels,” says Johan Nylén, Partner & CEO at Capillar Advisory.

We have seen first-hand the expertise and energy Capillar brings to their transactions. Capillar’s team in Helsinki joined Nordhaven already a few months ago and we are now working together on several pan-Nordic projects,” says Juha Raunio, Managing Partner at Nordhaven Helsinki.

We are excited to start co-operation with a firm that shares our vision on a pan-Nordic advisory firm with a strong international partnership,” continues Anders Strand, Managing Partner at Nordhaven Oslo.
