Scandza is a leading branded food and non-alcoholic beverages business operating across the Nordic region.

Scandza vendor Lindsay Goldberg, a US based private equity house, launched a sale process in late 2013.

DC Advisory ("DC") and Danske Bank Corporate Finance ("Danske") were engaged to provide financial and debt advice to CapVest on the acquisition of Scandza.

Following a competitive auction, CapVest successfully agreed the purchase of Scandza in December 2013; terms were undisclosed.

The acquisition of Scandza provides CapVest with an investment in a leading food and non-alcoholic beverages business, with strong market positions across its key segments.

DC Advisory and Danske Bank provided CapVest with excellent service and advice throughout the Scandza process. Scandza was the third food transaction we engaged the DC / Danske team on – testament to the quality of service received.
