Via Venture Partners acquires controlling interest in Hostnordic

Hostnordic is an Aarhus-based hosting and IT outsourcing company. Christian Winther has many years of experience from top management in IT and Telecom companies in Denmark and abroad. He joins as Executive Chairman of the company with responsibility for daily operations.

The previous owners Christian Beer and Nicolai Pedersen remain shareholders in the company. Hostnordic has a strong position in the rapidly growing IT outsourcing market and is with its effective Microsoft-based infrastructure an obvious platform for participation in the consolidation that is underway in the hosting market at the moment. Via Venture Partners primarily invests up to EUR 20 mill per case in ICT growth companies ready to expand outside the Nordic region with a focus on companies with revenues from EUR 5 mill to EUR 75 mill.

“Through the investment in Hostnordic we look forward to participate in this exciting market development that is happening now and in future years. Hostnordic’s effective and robust platform is and will be a great asset to both clients and partners.”

John Helmsøe-Zinck, Managing Partner, Via Venture Partners

“We look forward to continue to be a part of Hostnordic and to help make it even better in future together with Christian Winther and a financially strong investor as Via Venture Partners as a shareholder.”
