CataCap sells its majority stake in SkyBrands

The private equity fund CataCap has sold its majority shareholding in SkyBrands to a consortium consisting of the experienced retail executive Søren Bach and members of the company’s board and management.


CataCap invested in SkyBrands almost six years ago and has since been the majority shareholder. SkyBrands is a supplier of home textiles and apparel with well-known brands in the fields of entertainment, sports, films and music.
Today, CataCap, which generally operates with an investment horizon of approx. 4-7 years, has sold its share of SkyBrands.

It is an appropriate time for us to step out of SkyBrands and let others take over the company. We are selling a healthy company that has grown and developed well over the last couple of years to a strong owner who will support the company’s continued growth and development going forward. We are delighted with this, and we look forward to following SkyBrands’ onward journey from the sideline”, says Jens Hahn-Petersen, partner at CataCap.

The consortium, which acquires CataCap’s shareholding consists of a number of board members and members of the management of SkyBrands. Søren Bach, who has more than 30 years of experience from the retail industry, leads the consortium.
The new ownership structure provides SkyBrands with a solid basis for continuing the growth journey. There is a strong set of experience and competencies in the consortium that I am sure will be translated into new successes,” says Jens Hahn-Petersen, partner at CataCap.

CataCap has been assisted by Gorrissen Federspiel and PwC. The consortium has been assisted by DLA Piper.
