Animagi was Finland’s leading chain of veterinary clinics. The company’s mission was to expand the range of veterinary services and provide customers with a higher degree of expert medical knowledge combined with welcoming customer service.

In 2012, Intera, together with a group of private veterinary clinics, established Animagi by merging 13 veterinary clinics into a nationwide Finnish chain. Animagi immediately became the largest company in its field in Finland. Most of the chain’s shareholders were clinic owners and veterinary surgeons and Intera’s role was to ensure adequate resources for the execution of Animagi’s growth strategy. During Intera’s ownership, the chain grew significantly through acquisitions, and by 2014, it had a network of 38 clinics across Finland, serving customers in over 20 regions.

Evidensia, the leading Nordic veterinary services group acquired Animagi in the spring of 2015. Intera concurrently invested in Evidensia and remained a minority shareholder until the summer of 2017.  At the time of Intera’s initial investment in Animagi at the end of 2012, the combined revenue of the clinics was EUR 14 million. Group revenue increased to approximately EUR 30 million before the exit in the summer of 2015. The number of employees in the company grew from 160 to 400 during the same period.
