When Norfund exitis an investment, the main goals are to make the highest possible profit, and ensure that the company is in the best possible position for further development without the Norfund invested capital. There are different potential exit routes: IPOs (listing on a stock exchange), sales to other existing owners or sales to new owners. Loans are repaid according to the plan made at the point of investment.
In case of exit through sales, the process has three main stages:
- Identify potential buyers
- Make the project ready for sales
- Negotiations and sales
After exit, Norfund will re-invest the capital in new projects.
