A Gain was a leading provider of Software Asset Management services in Denmark and had grown rapidly into this position.
Inmeta Crayon AS, where Norvestor VI, L.P. is the majority owner acquired all shares in A Gain in 2012 and thereby created a combined Danish business, representing DKK 500 million in revenue
A Gain contracted with 1CT as its exclusive advisor to secure the best possible strategic exit. This was a process of preparation and subsequent execution that lasted less than 12 months. The market was analysed and categories of potential buyers were identified. After completion of the company and management presentations, etc., anonymous contacts were made to a wide range of potential buyers. As a result a small group of qualified and buyers from a range of countries were identified. After a number of negotiations, an acquisition by Inmeta Crayon was identified as the most attractive option and the transaction was completed.
