3i and the Thysell family divest HTC

3i, Håkan and Gunn Thysell, and certain minority holders have divested the HTC group to Polaris Private Equity.

The HTC group, with subsidiaries in USA, Germany, France and UK, is a global manufacturer and supplier of grinding machines and diamond pads for mechanical floor cleaning and polishing. Håkan and Gunn Thysell founded HTC in 1987 and have been active in the group since then. 3i, which acquired an approximate 36.5 % stake of the group in 2006, is an international leader in private equity focusing on buyouts, growth capital and infrastructure.

The sellers were advised by Mannheimer Swartling in the transaction. The firm’s team was led by Jan Holmius, primarily assisted by Henrik Johansson, Jon Rastad and Sanna Lundqvist.
