Mezzanine funds managed/advised by CapMan have announced the realisation of their investment in transaction processing company EuroProcessing International ASA (EPI).

Norwegian EPI was established in 2000. The company specialises in payment transaction processing and is the market leader in Latvia, Lithuania and Slovakia, where it has transaction processing centres. EPI’s business has developed significantly within the past few years and the company has become a major provider of services for card and electronic payments’ markets in Central and Eastern Europe. Since 2003, the company has tripled its profits and expanded operations from two to ten countries. CapMan’s Finnmezzanine III funds invested in EPI in May 2004.

”This is an excellent example of how a company can use mezzanine to finance strong growth. EPI has expanded its operations rapidly and profitably as a result of close co-operation between the company’s management and owners. This has been a very good mezzanine investment to CapMan,” states Markus Sjöholm, Partner at CapMan.
