Lindahl has provided legal advice to Coeli Private Equity AB (publ) in conjunction with the merger of nine private equity funds and the subsequent listing of the company’s shares on Nordic AIF, a regulated market run by Nordic Growth Market NGM AB. The first day of trading is expected to be 25 November 2019.
The process has been ongoing for just over a year and initially involved a large-scale merger of nine of Coeli’s previous annual funds aimed at the Nordic market into the newly created investment firm Coeli Private Equity AB (publ). On completion of the merger, the company applied and was approved by the Nordic Growth Market AB for listing on Nordic AIF, which is a natural step towards increasing transparency for investors and providing the opportunity to trade the company’s shares on a regulated market.
Coeli Private Equity AB’s business idea is to offer its clients an opportunity to invest in a unique portfolio of Nordic private equity. The company has built up a well-diversified portfolio through investments in private equity funds and a few direct investments and currently has exposure to approximately 130 portfolio companies in various industries and lifecycle phases.
Lindahl’s team consisted of Mårten Steen (responsible partner), Emelie Carmhagen Wernoff, Emira Peterson, Michael Edquist, Therese Norenäs, Elin Myhr and Carolin Martinez, in addition to whom a number of other employees have contributed to areas of the project.
