WhiteAway was founded in Denmark in 2003 and is now the leading internet retailer of household appliances in the Nordics, with run rate annual revenues of over DKK 1bn. Verdane VIII invested in the company in September 2013 through a secondary direct transaction where eEquity was the seller.

WhiteAway’s expansion in the Norwegian and Swedish markets is just one example of how much value we can create in a short period of time.”
