Scribona acquires Catella

Scribona, listed on First North, has agreed to acquire Catella, a European finance group that specializes in financial advisory services and asset management. The total consideration, including redemption of Catella’s debt, amounts to SEK 417 million.

Selling the shares in Catella is Catella’s management group, which previously acquired Catella from Catella’s former owner Catella Luxembourg S.a.r.l. for the same amount now being paid by Scribona.

Catella’s management group was advised by Mannheimer Swartling. The partners handling the matter included Martin Ericsson, Martin Nilsson and Thomas Pettersson, primarily assisted by Sophie Ahlberg, Fredrik Berndt, Martin Fagerlund, Henrik Johansson and Helena Riese Arkbrant.
