When screening for new holdings, we focus on selective deal and business characteristics and always want to be able to have an impact on the development of the possible portfolio company. We typically invest EUR 50-150 million and look for lead investor positions. We invest in both listed and privately held companies and prefer companies with Nordic origins. While we do not have strict sector limitations, we are most familiar with industrial companies with a Fibre and Industrial technologies background.
The target company should operate in a healthy megatrend-driven market, have a sustainable value creation model and a favourable value chain position. Relatively low cyclicality is a plus. We look for ompanies with a proven competitive edge, evidenced by market share gains and solid profitability. The companies should also have identified growth potential in area(s) where they have the right to win.
