Carnegie Investment Bank is proud to have acted as Joint Lead Manager and Bookrunner in connection with HEROIC’s successful NOK 60 million private placement. The net proceeds will be used for partial payment of the ESL Pro League franchise spot, securing positions and expanding the company’s reach through ambassadors and new esports titles, and for general corporate purposes.
Heroic Group is a leading European esports organization with roots in the Nordics, with four pro teams at elite level in four different game titles, reaching millions of viewers globally. Founded in Denmark in 2016 as a promising challenger in the professional esports scene in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the organization currently competes in leading titles such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, PUBG, Rainbow 6 and Rocket League.
Heroic was acquired by Omaken Sports in February 2021, providing a strong platform for additional growth and expansion. In November 2021 Omaken Sports changed its name to Heroic Group to better reflect the long-term ambitions of the company. Today, Heroic Group is headquartered in Oslo, Norway, with rosters including players and coaches from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, UK and among other European countries.
Carnegie congratulates Joachim “NoobworK” Haraldsen, Stian Flate Friisvold, Joachim Harg, the shareholders and the rest of the Heroic Group team with the transaction, and looks forward to continue supporting Heroic going forward.
