Sale of Nelson Garden and it’s Nordic affiliates

RosholmDell assisted BNF Förvaltning AB in connection with the sale and purchase of the seed company Nelson Garden AB to Nordic Garden AS (part of the Norwegian Felleskjøpet). The acquisition includes Nelson Garden AB, sales companies in Denmark, Finland and Norway, and logistics operations in Sweden. According to CEO Martin Borgström, who will continue his work in the company, the merger creates possibilities for Nelson Garden to develop an offer that provides Nelson Garden with opportunities to grow on the entire Nordic market. Torsten Nilsson, whose father founded Nelson Garden 85 years ago, states that three factors were fundamental for the decision to sell; market knowledge, resources and intent. “That Felleskjøpet has both market knowledge and resources is obvious. In addition, their clear intention to continue to develop the business in Tingsryd is very important …”. RosholmDell’s team consisted of Jonas Rydström, Carolina Thoft and Anders Rosholm.
