Investment Rationale

Retailing of hunting and outdoors equipment is still largely fragmented and relies on traditional physical retailers. A large potential exists in modernizing the industry and building an integrated product owner and online retailer.

Nalkas Ambitions

With Open Air Group, Nalka’s ambition is to build a Nordic market leader within hunting and outdoor products online, with control over the full value chain – from product development to sales and customer support. With a solid foundation of proprietary brands, the goal is to offer the best possible assortment and service, to an attractive price.
