In connection with the Share Sale, the funds managed by CapMan have entered into a lock-up undertaking, under which they have, subject to certain exceptions, agreed not to sell any shares in Harvia for a period ending May 7, 2019.
Pia Kåll, Managing Partner of CapMan Buyout, comments: “CapMan has supported Harvia through a number of important milestones and will continue with a 12.3 per cent stake. Following our investment in 2014, together with the management we developed and implemented a new growth strategy for the company, as a result of which Harvia is one of the leading sauna and spa companies in the world. This is an excellent basis for both current and new owners to continue from.”
