Deal of the Year - Buyout of Visma

In June 2017, five private equity houses split KKR’s majority stake in Visma for £4.1 billion, a 22x multiple. The Norwegian software group now enters the fourth round of private equity ownership. KKR generates 3.2x money, according to our analysis. The deal illustrates the growing trend for club deals in European large buyouts and is one of the largest Nordic deals this year.
