CapMan exits Reima

CapMan Press Release 1 July 2008
Nordic Private Equity Partners II fund sells its stake in the last investment in the fund's portfolio, Reima Holding to Pohjola Capital Partners. Reima is a leading children's clothing company in Northern Europe. The exit does not have an impact on CapMan Plc's result for 2008 as Nordic Private Equity Partners II fund has not begun to generate carry. The fund's activities will terminate with the exit.
Reima focuses on the design and sale of clothes for children up to 12 years old under the brand names Reima, Tutta and Lassie.
"Reima has in the recent years further strengthened its position as a well-known Finnish brand house. The company's business has developed well and we are pleased to announce that we have found the company a new dedicated owner who will continue the good work done in Reima", says CapMan Partner Lars Hagelstam.
Nordic Private Equity Partners II fund invested in Reima-Tutta Oy in April 1997. Reima Group's textile electronics business Clothing+ will be sold to the company's operative management as a MBO-transaction. The investment has been satisfactory for investors in Nordic Private Equity Partners II fund.
