airteam secures contract in connection with new underground line in Copenhagen

Ratos

airteam has secured a major ventilation and cooling contract in connection with construction of a new underground line to Copenhagen’s Sydhavn district. The project includes installations at five stations and two crossings.

airteam is carrying out the project for the contractor TUNN3L JV, a joint venture between the French company Vinci and the German Hochtief. The project is expected to be finished in 2024, with the start scheduled for 2021.

“This is an interesting project that will mean a lot for Copenhagen and its inhabitants for years to come. I’m proud that airteam has been chosen as a ventilation contractor in the construction of the new underground line to Copenhagen’s Sydhavn. This is a project that includes both cooling, traditional ventilation facilities and a solution for the tunnels’ fire ventilation system.

airteam was chosen based on our vast know-how, which is the result of many years of work in comfort and industrial ventilation, and not least based on our previous ventilation contract carried out at the underground at Nordhavn Station. As we accumulate further competence in this field, we will be well positioned for future infrastructure projects in Denmark, Sweden and other Nordic countries,” says Poul Pihlmann, CEO of airteam.

“This contract award is a proof of the strong position airteam has in the Danish market. As airteam has grown and delivered high levels of quality and customer satisfaction, we are now being invited to bid on the largest ventilation projects in Denmark. We remain optimistic about the future of our Danish operations, and about the potential to build the same position in the growing Swedish operation,” says Christian Johansson Gebauer, Head of Business Area Construction & Services, Ratos.

GIMV

20/03/2020 – 07:30 | Portfolio

Grandeco announces a reorganisation of its shareholder base: Down2Earth Capital (D2E) comes in as majority shareholder, while Gimv and management remain on board and reinvest significantly. By broadening the investor group, Grandeco seeks to strengthen its position as a future-proof market leader in decorative wallpaper, including through potential strategic acquisitions.

Grandeco Wallfashion Group Belgium (Tielt – BE, www.grandecogroup.com) is one of the world’s leading wallpaper producers. With a state-of-the-art Belgian production plant and a compound average growth rate of 3.2% in recent years, it is largely outperforming the market. Grandeco has six sales offices in Belgium, the United Kingdom, France, Poland, Russia and Germany, a dynamic team of more than 300 employees and is represented in more than 80 countries. Today, Grandeco is an innovative, customer-oriented group that responds to the demand for a personal style in a global market through distinguished collections and digital printing.

Patrick Molemans, CEO Grandeco, about this transaction: “With Gimv’s unconditional support we have succeeded in transforming ourselves into an attractive and strongly market-oriented company. The time is now right to shift up a gear: with new shareholder D2E we want to further strengthen Grandeco’s market power going forward. With carefully targeted acquisitions and a continued  focus on organic growth and returns, we will maintain our  leading sustainable position (product range and customer portfolio) and achieve the best results in the worldwide market for decorative wallpaper.”

Tom Van de Voorde, Managing Partner Gimv and contact person for Grandeco so far: “After the difficult years at the time of the financial and economic crisis in 2008, Grandeco has become the future-proof market leader in decorative wallcovering thanks to the continued efforts of its staff and management, through forward-looking investments in growth and technology and through its commercial repositioning.”

Barbara Arnst, Partner in the Connected Consumer platform of Gimv and now part of the deal team, adds: “With a lasting belief in the company we look forward to positioning Grandeco Group even more as a contemporary, digital and sustainable player towards the modern consumer. Together with our partner D2E, we want to further realize the external growth opportunities – including strategic acquisitions.”

Alain Keppens, Partner Down2Earth Capital, about this transaction: “Grandeco is a market performer in a highly fragmented industry, the company has achieved above-average growth and profitability in recent years. In addition to its strong reputation in analogue printing, the company has a clear advantage in the area of digital printing. Together with our partner Gimv and the strong management team, we look forward to further building the company into one of the Pan-European market leaders.”

Grandeco is part of Gimv’s Connected Consumer platform, which invests in companies with a clear vision of the needs and preferences of today’s consumer,

Over the entire period, the investment offered a positive return with only a small impact on the net asset value of Gimv per 30 September 2019. No further financial details on the transaction are being published.

SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)– KKR, a leading global investment firm, today announced the expansion of KKR’s Global Impact team with the appointment of Chee-Wei Wong as Head of Global Impact for Asia.

Chee-Wei’s ability to identify innovative companies throughout markets in the region including Southeast Asia, South Asia, Greater China and Australia will be critical as we look to deploy capital.”

In the role, Mr. Wong, who is based in Singapore, is responsible for sourcing investment opportunities and supporting impact-related portfolio companies across Asia Pacific. Mr. Wong will also serve as a member of the firm’s Global Impact Investment Committee. The addition of Mr. Wong follows KKR Global Impact’s recent international expansion with the appointments of Stanislas de Joussineau as Head of Global Impact for Europe and Sharon Yang as a senior investor for KKR Global Impact in Asia.

Zayo Completes Transition to a Private Company Digital Colony and EQT Become Zayo’s Lead Investors

eqt

BOULDER, Colo. – March 9, 2020 – Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. (“Zayo”) (NYSE: ZAYO), which
provides mission-critical bandwidth to the world’s most impactful companies, today announced
the completion of its acquisition by affiliates of Digital Colony Partners (“Digital Colony”) and the
EQT Infrastructure IV fund (“EQT” or “EQT Infrastructure”). The close marks the consummation
of the $14.3 billion transaction, which represents the largest syndicated private equity
investment, the fifth largest Media & Communications LBO and the second largest LBO overall
since 2008.

Under the terms of the merger agreement, which was approved by Zayo’s stockholders at a
special meeting held on July 26, 2019, Zayo stockholders will receive $35 in cash per share of
Zayo common stock. As a result of the transaction completion, Zayo is now a privately held
company and its common stock has ceased trading on the NYSE.

Founded in 2007, Zayo has grown through both organic investment and 45 acquisitions to
become the leading independent provider of communications infrastructure. With deep, dense
metro and long haul networks across the U.S., Canada and Western Europe, Zayo serves many
of the largest and most innovative companies in the world. Before going public in 2014, Zayo’s
original private equity investors funded the company with just over $1 billion of equity; with
today’s transaction close, that equity is worth over $8 billion, creating material value for
shareholders. Beyond shareholder value, Zayo has also established itself over the past 13
years as a top employer along Colorado’s front range and as an active participant in the
communities in which it operates.

“We are excited to launch this new chapter of Zayo, as a private company under the ownership
of a consortium led by two highly experienced infrastructure investors who have a deep
understanding of our business and bring significant value to Zayo,” said Dan Caruso, Zayo’s
chief executive officer. “This is a great outcome for the company, its former shareholders, our
customers and employees, and our new ownership group. As a private company, we will have
greater flexibility to pursue our long-term strategy and leverage our fiber to fuel global innovation
for our customers.”

“EQT has a strong track record of supporting market leading companies and we look forward to
working with the entire Zayo organization as it embarks on its next phase of growth as a private
company,” said Jan Vesely, Partner at EQT Partners, Investment Advisor to EQT Infrastructure.
“Zayo is ideally positioned to meaningfully expand its offerings and services against the
backdrop of accelerating demand for innovative fiber infrastructure solutions.”

“Zayo has amassed a world class network that is unparalleled in the markets they serve,
supporting the world’s most innovative companies,” said Marc Ganzi, CEO of Digital Colony and
CEO-Elect of Colony Capital. “We believe that fiber networks are the crucial connective element
in the digital infrastructure ecosystem, and we look forward to partnering with the Zayo team to
execute on the plan of leveraging these powerful assets and driving growth with our customers
across multiple markets and verticals.”

Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan served as financial advisors to Zayo Group in connection with
the transaction and Skadden Arps served as legal counsel. Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank
acted as financial advisors to Digital Colony and EQT Infrastructure and Simpson Thacher
served as legal advisor.
