Augment Partners AB (“Augment Partners”) has now been selected as an advisor for the First North Stockholm IPO process. The timing of the listing is estimated to be during 2017.
During 2016 Nuuka has grown remarkably by adding several hundred buildings to its customer base and now has more than 800 buildings using Nuuka for more efficient and smarter building management in the Nordic countries and the Netherlands. Nuuka recently announced its first international installations outside of the Nordic region and has attracted public funding for its projects in China.

Mikko Valtonen, Nuuka Senior Vice President, Business Development:
“With strong growth figures from the on-going year and a very promising pipeline for 2017 we look forward to raising funding during the pre-IPO and IPO processes. We believe we have proven our business case to the market with 800+ buildings under Nuuka currently. We have also recently gotten our first major international customers and want to kick-off our already agreed project in China with our strong Chinese partner. Now we need more capital so we can further accelerate our growth and make Nuuka a real Nordic success story on a global market. “
