Since signing with Ardian, the company has received new equity enabling two significant acquisitions, contributing to 30% EBITDA growth.
When we heard that IK Partners had signed the deal, we proactively contacted them. We knew about this sector thanks to past experience in the US, and we also knew about the Nordic region, which is quite attractive for the construction industry.
As a Northern European rental company across eight countries, Renta has experienced remarkable growth, now standing as one of the foremost three companies within its operating markets. Notably, its net sales surged to 421 million euros in 2022.
Renta's strength lies in its lean and efficient organizational structure and operational model. This approach removes unnecessary layers of hierarchies and gives them access to efficient and modern operational tools. Like Ardian, they are firm believers in value sharing and offer all their deposit managers the opportunity to become shareholders and invest in Renta.
