Dasos Capital Oy Ltd joins forces with CapMan plc

Dasos Capital Oy Ltd and CapMan Plc (“CapMan”) have signed on 21 December 2023 an agreement to convert the current shareholding of Dasos Capital Oy into an indirect shareholding of CapMan via a share-for-share exchange.

“We are inspired to join forces with such a well-established and prestigious private assets house as CapMan”, says Olli Haltia, CEO and Senior Partner of Dasos.  “Partnering with CapMan allows leveraging synergies between the companies and strengthening the focus on Dasos’ value creation and investment activity. Forests and all natural ecosystems are globally under pressure resulting from population growth and massively increased economic well-being. For the coming decades, we need to move on with investing into and re-building our natural capital. The demand for sustainable wood as well as for forest-based nature and carbon sequestration services is expected to increase substantially in the foreseeable future. Combining CapMan’s deeply rooted private asset experience with Dasos’ expertise will form an excellent instrument to address the widening investment opportunities in the context of forest-based natural capital.”

Partnering with CapMan targets to provide the following benefits for Dasos services:

  • Ensure sufficient back-office capacities for future developments;
  • Broaden the expertise available;
  • Support for continuity and continuous evolution by Dasos
  • Facilitate broader fund raising and services for a wider diversity of investors

Due to the nature of the share-for-share conversion, Dasos team continues as shareholders. There are no changes in the team and team will continue in the current positions, supported by additional resources.

The completion of the share conversion is subject to consents by LPs of certain funds under management, as well as CapMan’s Extraordinary General Meeting authorising the Board of Directors to resolve on the issuance of new shares.

The completion of the acquisition is also conditional on the approval by the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority and the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority.

The transaction is intended to be completed during the first half of 2024, following the handling by regulatory authorities and shareholder approvals.
