Leading publisher of teaching and course materials

Liber develops teaching materials, course and management literature, and is Sweden’s largest publisher of educational and professional texts.

In September 1990, the IK 1989 Fund merged Liber (acquired from Marieberg) with Esselte Publishing (acquired from Esselte). IK’s stake was then sold to Wolters Kluwer in January 1993.

Our Value Creation Strategy

During our ownership, we worked alongside the management team to:

  • Achieve integration of newly merged businesses; and
  • Consolidate business activities, and realise associated synergies.
