Pontos has signed an agreement on selling its holdings of Ficolo. Ficolo Oy will be acquired by Digital 9 Infrastructure plc for a total consideration of approximately EUR 135 million.
Ficolo is a data and cloud center company founded in 2011 with data centers in Helsinki, Pori and Tampere. Pontos invested in Ficolo in 2017 together with Taaleri, after which the company has grown an average of 30% annually.
The transaction requires approval from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, and it is expected to close during the third quarter of the year.
Torch Partners acted as Pontos’ exclusive financial advisor in the transaction and Hannes Snellman as legal advisor.
