CapMan Buyout exits Malte Månson to Accent Equity

Funds managed by CapMan Buyout have agreed to sell their holdings in Malte Månson, the largest independent service and repair provider for trucks and transportation vehicles in Sweden, to Accent Equity.

CapMan invested in Malte Månson in 2014 and has since focused on growing the company’s workshop chain organically and through acquisitions. Today, the company operates 17 workshops across Sweden and employs 180 people. The company’s turnover and profitability have developed favourably in recent years and the company is well-positioned to continue the consolidation of the fragmented Swedish and Nordic truck workshop markets.

“Over the past few year’s Malte Månson has embraced a growth-oriented winning culture rooted in customer satisfaction. The company has an exceptionally satisfied customer base with frequently returning customers and a high propensity to recommend Malte Månson to others. I would like to thank Malte Månson’s management team and employees for an excellent co-operation over the years. The company is now well-positioned to continue on its growth trajectory together with its new owner Accent Equity,” says Tobias Karte, Partner at CapMan Buyout.

“I would like to extend my warmest thanks to CapMan and our Board of Directors for the positive support over many years. We have demonstrated strong performance over the past three years as we almost doubled our turnover. Profitability has increased radically and Malte Månson has a solid foundation in strategically located workshops and a market-leading position among independent service and repair providers for commercial vehicles in Sweden. I am very proud of what we have accomplished and thrilled with the opportunity to be part of this exciting journey,” says Staffan Lindewald, CEO of Malte Månson.

Closing of the transaction is expected during the spring of 2023 and is subject to regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.
