Case

The Scanbur Group acquired by its original owner

The Scanbur group’s original owner, Henrik Møllegaard, and his investment company HMIG have repurchased the group.

The Scanbur Group produces and sells laboratory equipment and utensils to the pharmaceutical and biological research community and is leading within its field in the Nordics.

In 2014, Henrik Møllegaard divested the majority of the shares in the Scanbur Group to the Danish private equity sponsor, Erhvervsinvest, and in the following years the group delivered very impressive results, but lately the group has been lossmaking.

As a consequence hereof, the Scanbur Group’s financing bank, Nordea, took over the group from Erhvervsinvest by foreclosing on its security interest in the shares in the group – and thereby on-sold the shares to HMIG.

Accura advised Henrik Møllegaard and HMIG in connection with the acquisition.
