Kirk Kapital has just published its annual result for 2023, which shows an investment result of DKK 1.2 billion and equity value that now stands at DKK 9 billion. This means that Kirk Kapital is stronger than ever, according to Kim Gulstad CEO of Kirk Kapital.


“Here at Kirk Kapital, we have just published our results for 2023 – and once again this year there is much to be pleased about. Yet another year with a great investment resulte, this time of DKK 1.2 billion. This brings our equity value to more than DKK 9 billion. This excellent result is based on both our Strategic Investments and our Financial Investments. The result is not just a sign of our ability to navigate a challenging market, but also of the trust and commitment shown in us by our partners, advisors and employees,” says Kim Gulstad.


He explains that this year’s results reflect Kirk Kapital’s focus on both Strategic and Financial Investments, which together have contributed to a robust investment performance despite high inflation and rising global interest rates.


“Our Strategic Investments, including the acquisition of PR electronics and the divestment of Tacton, underline our ability to invest in exciting companies, contribute to successful development through active ownership, and then divest when it makes sense,” explains Kim Gulstad, who continues:


“At the same time, our Financial Investments have benefited from the general positive market developments, resulting in excellent results across the portfolios.”


During the year, Kirk Kapital has also taken important steps on the ESG front.


“As a signatory to the UN Global Compact, we are proud of the progress we have made in terms of ESG. It is an integral part of our strategy and reflects our commitment to running a responsible business,” says Kim Gulstad.
