Ahlström Capital invests in established companies that have strong positions in attractive markets and offer further development and value creation potential. We look for medium-sized companies (EUR 50–500 million) with Nordic presence and a global potential. Our aim is to have the leading role in listed companies and to be the majority owner in non-listed companies. However, we welcome co-investment opportunities with reputable investors.
For screening new potential acquisition targets and for developing our existing businesses we apply a comprehensive set of evaluation criteria. Understanding market attractiveness, companies’ strengths and weaknesses as well as the value creation potential is essential. As part of the process we evaluate management, customers operations and ESG related issues. We develop our portfolio companies through active board and strategy work, as well as through mergers and acquisitions. We support and develop the companies by forming effective boards that possess in-depth industrial expertise and support the management to succeed in leading their business.
