Revenues are generated worldwide, but with the majority in Europe and the US. EQT’s key initiatives focused on transforming Springer into a digital and pure play STM publisher with increased investments in development of e.g. a proprietary content database SpringerLink and digitization of the entire Springer Book Archive.

In 2013, EQT V sold Springer to BC Partners for an enterprise value of EUR 3.3 billion, with EQT maintaining a small minority ownership.
