The Tokmanni Group is experiencing a period of substantial growth and transformation. In July 2012 the ownership structure changed and the private equity investment company Nordic Capital became the main shareholder of the Group. Nordic Capital is investing in the growth and development of the discount store sector, as it firmly believes the sector’s position will continue to strengthen in the future. Expansion of our international activities has also begun well and includes joint purchasing with Norway’s largest discount store chain, Europris. The review of strategy included an adjustment to the company’s short-term goals. Three new key personnel were also appointed to the Executive Group at the start of 2013 for the purpose of putting into effect the new modes of operation.
