The buyer is the Finnish systems supplier SYSOPENDIGIA Plc, currently operating on the Nordic securities market. Through the acquisition, SYSOPENDIGIA will gain an important position in the Swedish securities market.
“We have now found the right industrial buyer for Capital C. SYSOPENDIGIA has an outstanding position as a supplier on the Finnish securities market, and will take advantage of Capital C’s technology and professional competence in further developing the products”, says Matti Kinnunen, Carnegie’s COO.
