“We have worked with GP Bullhound since 2008. Their experience and support over the years have proven to be instrumental – initially in our expansion capital round, and now, in this exit process”.

“We are delighted to have helped the Fjord team embark on the next part of their incredible journey by expanding Accenture’s digital and marketing capabilities. Long term relationships with category leaders is a fundamental part of GP Bullhound’s strategy and it is great to have worked with the team and the institutional shareholders, Beringea and the GP Bullhound Sidecar fund, from the financing round of 2009 to this landmark transaction.”
