Since its inception over 25 years ago, Verdane Capital Advisors (formerly Four Seasons Venture) has grown to become a leading Nordic investment advisory group. Since 2003, the company is focused on buying portfolios of unlisted holdings, but it still also invests in individual high-growth companies within its core areas of expertise; energy and the environment, ICT and traditional industry.
Verdane funds have €460 million in capital under management. The investor base is international but with a Nordic emphasis and includes a large number of blue-chip institutional investors. Verdane Capital Advisors has over 20 professionals in offices in Oslo, Stockholm and since March 2011, Helsinki.
Verdane Capital Advisors has advised Verdane funds on 16 Nordic portfolio transactions, through which nearly 250 companies have been acquired. Verdane's hands-on experience combined with its proprietary processes and investment methodology has contributed to the success of both global and local companies such as Opera Software, Chipcon and Reslink. Verdane funds have invested in sectors such as ICT, energy and traditional industries. Of its over 100 exits since inception, a number have been large IPOs (of which 3 on NASDAQ) and the remainder have mainly been industrial sales.
