Portfolio Companies

Long-standing commitment to European mid-market investments

We have supported the European mid-market since 1985, and we have been active investors in each of our three principal markets – UK, France and Germany – as well as in the Nordic and Benelux regions.

We typically invest in high quality international businesses with an enterprise value of between €25 million and €300 million, which we look to back through their next phase of growth, which will typically include a buy & build, roll-out or expansion strategy.

Collectia

Business Overview

Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Brøndby, Collectia is a fast-growing debt collection and debt purchase business operating primarily in Denmark with a niche presence in Sweden, Norway and Germany. The Company employs over 175 staff and serves approximately 13,000 corporate customers across over 600,000 active cases.

With its sophisticated proprietary technology platform, credit database and advanced data analytics capabilities, Collectia is a highly-differentiated business with significant potential to build market share in both existing and new markets. In recent years Collectia has diversified beyond its core debt collection business by increasing its exposure to debt purchasing and launching a credit control service for the Danish market, where the Company provides credit score information to its customers. In addition, Collectia has made several acquisitions to expand its presence across the Nordic region and in Germany.

Investment rationale

The investment in Collectia builds on Silverfleet’s extensive experience in the Financial Services sector and complements the firm’s strategy of leveraging attractive macro dynamics – in this case increasing regulation. New Danish and EU-wide regulation is driving continued outsourcing of debt collection to specialist service providers such as Collectia. Furthermore, Collectia expects that additional new regulation will result in increasing volumes of non-performing loan or debtor portfolios being sold by banks and businesses to specialists in the coming years.

Silverfleet’s investment will enable Collectia to accelerate its growth trajectory by using its superior technology to develop further its debt collection processes; scale its debt purchase operations; and continue its expansion internationally through selective acquisitions in attractive niche verticals.
