Adelis Equity Partners has agreed to acquire a 70% stake in INTERSPORT Sweden. INTERSPORT is the largest sporting goods retailer in the world with 5,500 stores in 44 countries and one of the largest in Sweden, with a focus on running, cross-country skiing, fitness, football, and other team sports. The deal sees INTERSPORT Sweden acquire approximately 100 franchise stores to create a fully integrated retail group in Sweden, with the remaining 50 stores continuing to operate as franchisees. Upon completion of the transaction, following approval by relevant competition authorities, the current owners of INTERSPORT Sweden will retain a 30% stake in the newly formed INTERSPORT Sweden group.
