Feb 14, 2020: Quantum Data Analytics is delighted to announce that Silverfleet Capital has acquired a majority stake in Collectia, a debt collection and debt purchase provider. The transaction closed in early March 2020.
Silverfleet Capital, the European private equity firm, has acquired a majority stake in Collectia A/S, (“Collectia” or the “Company”), a credit management services provider based in Denmark. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Brøndby, Collectia is a fast-growing debt collection and debt purchase business operating primarily in Denmark with a niche presence in Sweden, Norway and Germany. The Company employs over 175 staff and serves approximately 13,000 corporate customers across over 600,000 active cases.
With its sophisticated proprietary technology platform, credit database and advanced data analytics capabilities, Collectia is a highly-differentiated business with significant potential to build market share in both existing and new markets. In recent years Collectia has diversified beyond its core debt collection business by increasing its exposure to debt purchasing and launching a credit control service for the Danish market, where the Company provides credit score information to its customers. In addition, Collectia has made several acquisitions to expand its presence across the Nordic region and in Germany.
QDA served as a financial advisor to Silverfleet, covering pricing, investments and forecasting. Silverfleet’s investment will enable Collectia to accelerate its growth trajectory by using its superior technology to develop further its debt collection processes; scale its debt purchase operations; and continue its expansion internationally through selective acquisitions in attractive niche verticals.
