Two managers of the private equity firm Uninvest acquired 33% of the company in 2015 through an MBO transaction, while the Swiss fund Springwater bought the remaining 66%, providing an exit for the three owner universities.

This operation was necessary to enable the fund manager to raise public funds from the ICO, which had limited its investment to private equity managers and funds.
