    Highlights under our ownership

    • Global leader with 60% market share in its relevant markets
    • 3-fold growth in turnover during our investment
    • Emerging markets sales increased from 23% at investment to 70% at exit
    • Increase in international footprint from 16 to 32 countries
    • Product line extended through strategic acquisitions.
    “I would like to thank 3i for their continuous support for our successful entrepreneurial and global growth in transforming a European, Dutch-based business into a truly global player with a market leading position in all the countries in which we operate." Louwrens Dijkstra, CEO, Hyva
