Hannes Snellman Counsel to PCP
9 December 2021
Hannes Snellman acted as counsel to PCP, who provided a five-year senior secured loan facility to Aarke, a Swedish manufacturer of premium carbonators and home appliance accessories for the consumer market. Aarke is a globally recognised brand that combines quality products, premium materials, and a unique design coupled with a clear focus on sustainability.
PCP provides tailored funding solutions to mid-sized companies in Northern Europe and acts as a strategic financial partner to companies who need additional funds to expand, make acquisitions, refinance their balance sheets, or restructure their operations. Over the last two decades, PCP has engaged and invested in over 130 companies and helped them maximise their potential.
Aarke was founded in 2013 by industrial designers Carl Ljungh and Jonas Groth with a focus on design and development of home appliances from premium materials engineered for the everyday use. The first product, the Aarke Carbonator, was launched in December 2016 after four years of development. The company has since then expanded its product range within the carbonated water market while continuing its strong focus on design and quality engineering.
Hannes Snellman's core team included Fredrik Olsson, Maria Orrgard, and Amanda Alexandersson.
