Below you can read CEO and owner of THORNICO, Christian Stadil’s comment on today's big news.
'Today is truly an exciting day!
It has just been announced that we investors (my good friends Jesper and Tommy and myself) as well as the founders (Jesper and Mikkel) have sold the FIRTAL Group including Helsebixen to MATAS for a three-digit million amount in DKK.
It feels good indeed as there is a great match between the FIRTAL Group and MATAS, as well as between what we are capable of in Firtal, and the exciting plans and the strategy that MATAS has with Gregers at the forefront.
On a personal level, it has been extra fun, since I am lead investor aka the largest external investor, as well since the growth and value added since the investment was made in LØVENS HULE/Dragons Den Season 1 has been very significant, and even so significant that it may be a record within the format in terms of return on investment.
Wouldn’t it be good fun if we could battle the big boys in Dragons' Den ;-)
Even moreso, it is a case that clearly shows what investing in venture has to offer: Besides being an exciting and inspiring journey, you get the opportunity of returning your investment multiple times within a few years - if you spot the right venture to invest in that is.
A big congratulation to the entire FIRTAL team and especially to Jesper and Mikkel, two spectacularly awesome boys who I'm going to miss at our THORNICO ERFA meetings - as they are top of class at what they do, and I'm certain they're going to bring MATAS a lot of value. Well done and all the best to both Firtal and MATAS *' , Christian Stadil, CEO and owner of THORNICO
