“Stefan and his team have built a highly differentiated hosting business in Denmark, addressing attractive growth segments of the cloud solutions market. We are delighted to be supporting them to accelerate the development of the business. HgCapital has a long track record of investing in SME-focused technology business in Denmark and the wider Nordic region and we are pleased to be adding Zitcom to this portfolio.”

The investment will help my team and I to strengthen and grow our position in the Danish market and we couldn’t be more excited about the endeavor ahead of us.”

Stefan Rosenlund, CEO, Zitcom

“The Danish hosting industry currently enjoys a lot of attention, especially from foreign private equity groups that see great opportunities to consolidate the Danish market. Therefore, I anticipate that we will see several transactions in the Danish hosting industry in 2016.”
