CapMan Oyj: CapMan establishes a new investment area, CapMan Infra

CapMan Press release 2 February 2017 at 8.35 a.m. EET

CapMan establishes a new investment area, CapMan Infra

CapMan has established a new investment area, CapMan Infra, which focuses on
Nordic mid-cap infrastructure assets. The new investment area will connect
investors and Nordic infrastructure asset owners while creating value through
local origination of investment opportunities and active ownership and asset
management. The establishment of CapMan Infra is part of CapMan's growth
strategy, which includes launching new value adding investment solutions.

Ville Poukka, M. Sc. (Econ.) has been appointed to head CapMan Infra. Poukka
joins CapMan from Danske Bank Corporate Finance, where he has been Managing
Director and responsible for Nordic Energy and Infrastructure operations.
Poukka has advised clients in several infrastructure transactions in Finland
and Sweden. Poukka will officially start at CapMan during the second quarter
of 2017.

"We implement this investment strategy gradually based on investor preferences
and asset characteristics. Managed account mandates or investments in single
assets through club deal structures are a likely approach in the beginning
but we are also considering the establishment of an infrastructure fund. For
the time being, we are focused on origination and making the first
investments," says Ville Poukka, Partner of CapMan Infra.

CapMan Infra's investment focus is primarily core infrastructure assets in
sectors such as energy, transportation and telecommunication. Key
geographical markets are in Finland and Sweden, but assets in other Nordic
countries can be considered as well. In addition to Poukka, CapMan Infra will
include a small local team of experienced infrastructure investment
professionals. The team with extensive networks in Europe will combine
infrastructure deal-making and asset management experience.

"Many investors look to allocate more capital into real assets in the current
investment environment. There is high investor appetite for Nordic mid-cap
infrastructure assets, but relatively few asset managers that are actively
covering this space. CapMan's strengths are local know-how, an established
market position and extensive investor networks. We have charted the market
for a while and when the key person was found, everything came together. Now
is a good time to implement our growth strategy based on active ownership
also in this new investment area," says Joakim Frimodig, Director, Strategic
Growth Initiatives at CapMan.
