We advised Bonnier and Ratos in the sale of a majority stake in Nordic Cinema Group, the leading cinema operator in the Nordic and Baltic regions, to Bridgepoint in a transaction with an enterprise value of SEK 4.7 billion.

The transaction was a true dual-track process, where both the IPO track and the controlled auction track were prepared and implemented towards the very final stages, when the sale to Bridgepoint emerged as the preferred alternative.

D&I has advised Ratos on the formation of Nordic Cinema Group since the acquisition of Finnkino from Sanoma, the Finnish media group, in 2011 through the creation of the group in 2013, when Finnkino was merged with SF Bio, at the time owned by Bonnier.
