In 2007, the majority of Matas´ stores were converted to a capital chain in which CVC Capital Partners were the principal shareholders and where the one time store owners in the company Materialisternes Invest ApS, held a significant minority position.
In June 2013 Matas A/S were listed on Nasdaq OMX Copenhagen. CVC Capital Partners sold all their shares in Matas and they liquidated the company Materialisternes Invest ApS. The former storeowners thereby became directly independent shareholders in Matas.
