Successful capital raising to Pamica 2
The capital raising to Pamica 2 is now closed. The public issue of shares has been successfully completed with 495 MSEK raised.
In March came the decision to raise capital to Pamica 2 because of the success of Pamica 1 and continued demand from investors. Pamica 2 is a PE fund in a limited company structure authorized by Finansinspektionen (Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority). Pamica 2 is managed by Plain Capital Asset Management, a company authorized by Finansinspektionen to manage AIF funds. Pamica creates value for owners and investors through investments in unlisted and mature growth companies, and providing industrial skills through active involvement. 60% of the investors in Pamica 1 have chosen to invest in Pamica 2.
“The successful raising of capital shows that there is a high demand for investing in PE companies owned and run by entrepreneurs, and investing in small and medium-sized companies,” says Jan-Olof Svensson, CEO of Halmstad-based Pamica.
The investment framework in Pamica 2 amounts to approximately MSEK 495, which makes it possible to acquire 8-12 unlisted companies for a total value of MSEK 1 600 – 1 800. Pamica 1 has previously invested in companies such as Absortech, which prevents moisture damage in container transports, Beans in Cup, which supplies coffee to workplaces, Cupola, which supplies systematic fire protection, Safe Solutions, which offers digitalized security solutions, and Somna, which supplies cognitive aids.
“Pamica 2 is acting in the middle of the flow of interesting companies and through its 148 investors the entrepreneurs who seek partnership will be offered a motivating opportunity and future,” continues Jan-Olof Svensson.
Catella Bank has been the financial advisor and coordinator when raising the capital of Pamica 2. Catella has also chosen to enter as an anchor investor in the fund and has entered into a 25% ownership in Pamica Invest 2 AB.
“Through Pamica 2 we have been able to offer Catella Bank’s customers an exciting investment opportunity and meanwhile take the position of an active ownership,” says Jan Klippvik, at Catella and Chairman of Pamica 2.
