ARC Arise Consulting strengthens its position with the acquisition of Oceans

The Nordic consulting group ARC Arise Consulting has acquired the Norwegian company Oceans. Together, they form one of the largest consulting groups in the Nordic region with nearly 1200 consultants specializing in strategy, technology, innovation, design, and communication. Altor Equity Partners is the leading external investor supporting the groups growth journey. We are proud to have assisted ARC, in cooperation with Hammarskiöld, in this transaction.

ARC consists of Above, Ariel, Conversionista, Cupole, Curamando, Curious Mind, Fabrique, Goods, Heydays, Kurppa Hosk, Kurppa Hosk Communications, Mission Anew, Q42 and Umain. With its 1100 employees spread across the Nordic countries, the Netherlands, and the USA, ARC Arise Consulting has solid growth ambitions both nationally and regionally.

The company plans to further expand its presence in Norway by recruiting more consultants and specialists in the years to come.

Complementary expertise will further strengthen ARC

Oceans was launched in 2022 as a merger of advertising agencies Los & Co, Los & Co Drammen and Aleksander Reklamebyrå, the consulting and growth company Tba, the design agency Neue, and the technology company Modulær. Their complementary expertise will further strengthen ARC Arise Consulting's service offering.

Måns Hosk, co-CEO of ARC Arise Consulting, stated the following after the transaction was completed:

Oceans in Norway is an exceptionally good match because, like us, they have built a collective of consulting companies working together to create greater value for their customers and better development opportunities for their employees. Additionally, we share values and levels of ambition. Together with our existing ARC companies in Norway and Sweden, we now have a Nordic platform that creates even better conditions for driving positive change for customers, employees, and the planet.

Congratulations to all involved. Our core team has consisted of Per Dagslet and Asgeir Lehman.
