Continuing our trusted relationship with one of the world's leading FinTech disruptors, we acted as exclusive financial adviser and placement agent to deliver the Company's $650m primary capital raise. More than doubling the Company’s prior valuation to $10.65bn post-money, this landmark transaction further accelerates Klarna’s global growth, creates Europe’s most valuable FinTech company and confirms Klarna’s position as one of the most valuable financial services disruptors globally.
In a successful six week process we enabled the expansion of Klarna’s investor base. Led by new investor Silver Lake, the US-based global technology investment firm with more than $60bn under management, the round was also supported by GIC, BlackRock and HMI Capital. Due to strong demand from investors, we also facilitated the sale of over $100m of secondary shares to Merian Chrysalis, TCV, Northzone and Bonnier alongside the primary capital raise.
“Klarna is one of the most disruptive and promising FinTech companies in the world, redefining the e-commerce experience just as e-commerce growth is accelerating. We are excited to invest in the Company and partner with Sebastian and his talented team at this dynamic time to help accelerate Klarna’s remarkable growth and success worldwide".
