Kraftpojkarna has successfully been sold to OKQ8
Evli Corporate Finance acted as an excklusive advisor to the owners of Kraftpojkarna in the sales process.
Kraftpojkarna is Sweden's leading provider of turn-key renewable solutions within solar energy through its nationwide reselling network of energy producers, resellers, installation companies, and contractors. The Company was founded in 2012 and has since then displayed strong sales development reaching SEK +300m in sales 2018. To be able to continue to serve the high demand for renewable energy solutions, the owners have decided to sell a majority of the shares to OKQ8, one of Scandinavia's largest fuel companies.
Christian Tapper, CEO and co-owner of Kraftpojkarna, will together with OKQ8 continue to develop Kraftpojkarna and supply the market with the best renewable energy solutions.
"We are delighted to have a new strong owner such as OKQ8. This will enable us to continue to serve the increasing demand of our products and services within solar energy, as well as support growth within new verticals including energy storage, energy optimisation, and charging. The future looks sunny bright! I would also like to thank Evli who ensured a highly professional process with a very successful outcome of a partner that fits us perfectly." says Christian Tapper.
