We aim to have the leading role in listed companies and to be the majority owner in non-listed companies. That said, we also welcome co-investment opportunities with investors who share our values. Ahlström Capital invests in established companies that have strong positions in attractive markets and offer further development and value creation potential.
We have value creation plans for each company and participate actively in developing the companies. We develop them through board and strategy work, as well as through mergers, acquisitions and divestments.
For screening potential new acquisition targets and for developing our existing businesses we apply a comprehensive set of evaluation criteria. Understanding business attractiveness, companies’ strengths and weaknesses as well as the value creation potential is essential. Our main priority is to further develop the existing companies, but we also look for new companies to invest in.
