In June 2017, the combination of Lindorff and Intrum Justitia was completed, and Intrum was created. Intrum is the European industry-leading provider of Credit Management Services with a presence in 24 markets in Europe.

In 2014, Nordic Capital acquired the majority of Lindorff, a full-service European credit management service provider, with the ambition to support the company's growth and expansion to becoming a global player in its industry. At the time of Nordic Capital's acquisition, Lindorff was operating in 12 different markets in Europe, providing a range of products and services including customer selection, credit evaluation, invoicing, reminders, debt collection, portfolio management and customer services.

In November 2016, Intrum Justitia (publ) and Lindorff announced their intention to combine. On June 12, 2017, the European Commission approved the combination (conditional upon the divestment of Lindorff’s business in Denmark, Estonia, Finland and Sweden as well as Intrum Justitia’s business in Norway) and on June 27, 2017, the transaction was completed.

In October 2017 the combined company took the name Intrum. Intrum is a leading provider of credit management services (CMS) with local presence in 24 markets across Europe and a team of around 9,000 employees that are committed to promote a sound economy and who serves more than 80,000 clients across Europe.

Intrum helps companies prosper by offering solutions designed to improve cash flows and long-term profitability and by caring for their customers. To ensure that individuals and companies get the support they need to become free from debt is one important part of the company’s mission.

Nordic Capital Fund VIII is the majority shareholder in the combined company with approximately 45% of the shares (as per June 2017). The Intrum  share is listed on the Nasdaq Stockholm exchange.
