AcadeMedia

A leading education provider providing a complete educational offering spanning from pre-schools to adult education across Sweden, Norway and Germany

EQT acquired AcadeMedia in June 2010 with a value creation plan centered around accelerating growth through green-field roll-out, improved utilization of the installed base of schools by additional /extension of educational programs and acquisitions of both single unit schools and larger complementary platforms inside and outside of existing markets.

About Academedia
During EQT’s ownership period, the company almost quadrupled in size and transformed from a domestic Swedish player into the largest and most diversified independent education provider in Northern Europe, with approximately EUR 1 billion of revenues and operating more than 600 schools and units across Sweden, Norway and Germany. In addition to growth, AcadeMedia developed a market leading quality model which is used as a tool to measure and benchmark units across all relevant quality aspects in order to constantly improve the operations.
