Dentons has advised Enterprise Investors on the sale by its Polish Enterprise Fund VI of 100% of shares in Netrisk.hu to MCI.EuroVentures of MCI Capital Group. Deloitte Legal reportedly advised the buyers on the transaction, which is valued at EUR 56.5 million. 

Enterprise Investors is one of the largest private equity firms in Central and Eastern Europe. Active since 1990, the firm has raised nine funds with total capital exceeding EUR 2.5 billion. These funds have invested EUR 1.8 billion in 139 companies and exited 126 companies with total gross proceeds of EUR 3.6 billion.

In 2010, PEF VI acquired Netrisk.hu for EUR 23 million from the company founder and financial investors. According to an Enterprise Investors press release, "at the time of the investment, Netrisk.hu was the leading independent online insurance broker in Hungary, distributing almost exclusively compulsory MTPL auto insurance policies. After EI brought in a new management team to drive the company, Netrisk.hu started growing significantly as an online independent insurance market place in all non-life insurance products including MTPL, casco, home, property and travel insurance policies. It also developed new businesses lines. Today, in addition to maintaining its top market position as the leading online insurance broker, Netrisk.hu is also one of the largest online marketplaces for retail banking products and the largest company offering online comparison of telecom/cable, internet and TV packages in Hungary. Netrisk.hu’s number one market position is backed by strong financial results. In 2016 the company generated EUR 8.8 million in revenues, and this year it is expected to grow revenues by 23%."

The Dentons team was led by Partner Edward Keller, supported by Partner Annamaria Csenterics, Counsel Marton Kertesz, and Associates Sean Huber and Reka Szaloky.
