MVI Fund II closes above the target

MVI closes MVI Fund II above the target – ready to create the next generation of market-leading Nordic companies

Stockholm, 3rd December 2021.

MVI Advisors AB (“MVI”) has reached a final closing on its second private equity fund, MVI Fund II AB (the “Fund” or “Fund II”) with commitments of SEK 1.1 billion, exceeding its target of SEK 1 billion. MVI’s previous fund, MVI Fund I AB (“Fund I”), had commitments of SEK 478 million. The Fund, led by Stefan Karlsson and Daniel Nilsson, is pursuing the successful strategy implemented by MVI since 2011 of completing buyout investments in high-quality, small companies in the Nordic region, with a particular focus on Sweden.

The focus of Fund II is control positions in companies that take advantage of sustainable industry trends, have solid fundamentals, show potential for strong organic growth, and lend themselves to buy-and-build strategies. Stefan Karlsson, Partner at MVI comments:

We are delighted to reach a final close on Fund II of SEK 1.1 billion, an amount significantly larger than our previous fund. It will be used to create the next generation of market-leading Nordic companies. We are grateful to our existing investors for their continued support, and welcome on board our new investors. Our first four investments in the Fund are performing well and we are now focused on a strong pipeline of opportunities.

Elm Capital acted as the global placement agent for the Fund.

PS Auction acquires Units and Slag1

PS Auction acquires Units and Slag1 to establish market leading online auction house for surplus goods and bankruptcies.

Stockholm, 16th of June 2021

PS Auction has acquired Auktions- & Värderingshuset U.N.i.T.S AB and Slag 1 AB (“the Targets), creating a market leading online auction group within the market for surplus goods and bankruptcies. The acquisitions will add gross revenues of over SEK 100m to the group alongside solid profitability.

Stemming from the same roots as PS Auction, the Targets operate online auctions through two auction websites: Units and Slag1. The Targets share similar traits to PS Auction, however, with an exclusive focus on bankruptcy auctions, working toward bankruptcy trustees, as well as providing valuation services. Units possesses a market leading position within bankruptcies in Skåne, while Slag 1 complements the offering with a wide offering within liquidations, divestments, and surplus auctions.

The Targets have a strong presence in the geographical areas below Nässjö (southern Sweden) and a market leading position in Skåne. Units is headquartered in Nässjö but has warehouses in Ängelholm and Malmö. Slag 1 is operating without any warehouses as the company performs its auctions online with delivery on site. With a strong local position, the Targets have built a valuable network in the southern parts of Sweden.

MVI alongside PS Auction’s management have identified Units and Slag 1 as a solid addition to the platform. The acquisitions will widen PS Auction’s geographical footprint, especially in southern Sweden, and strengthen the service offering with additional online auction brands. Several synergy effects are realized as the finance function, customer support, IT platform, local management will be handled by PS resources.

MVI sees the acquisitions of the Targets as an important step in PS Auction’s journey toward market leadership within online auctions in the Nordics. The group’s continued strategy is an increased focus on circular growth, delivering sustainable services to clients in the Nordics. Growth will be driven through organic initiatives and acquisitions.

MVI, the majority owner of PS Auction, is an active growth investor supporting driven entrepreneurs to develop their businesses. MVI’s ambition is to create the next generation of Nordic companies.
