Oslo, Norway, September 29th - Incitia Ventures today announced that it has completed the sale of the remaining 50 % of its original shareholding in Algeta ASA (OSE:ALGETA) by accepting an offer from Selvaag Invest to buy the remaining shares at the same share price as the transaction published on July 7th. 

The transaction realizes a complete 8x multiple on the original NOK 33 million investment in Algeta with a total profit of NOK 223 million.

For me personally Algeta represent all what I ever dreamed of as a venture capitalist, making all the hard work at times worth while. We are immensely proud of being such a part of Algeta’s history and wish Algeta all the best going forward.”
