Through our Acquisition strategy, we aim at creating the majority share of the targeted sales and earnings growth for the group during the 2021-2023 strategy period.
The Acquisition strategy furthermore aims to diversify the Group through platform transactions to new industries and geographies and hence creating a favorable risk profile for the group.
Strengthen existing operations
Strengthening of existing businesses with complementary add-on acquisitions
Our experienced centralized M&A organization develops our M&A-activities and facilitates the creation of deal flow from our organization and from the network of advisors working with transactions.
In deal flow generation, we encourage and educate our people to ‘think in M&A’. This internal deal flow generation method acts as a key source for identifying complementary businesses to our existing operations. In addition, we continuously maintain relationships with the financial community working with transactions in Northern Europe. This in turn acts as a source of identifying possibilities for the group to diversify to new industries and geographies.
We have a standardized acquisition process from identification of opportunities, to execution of transaction and to post-acquisition integration. We pay high attention to aligning interests of key management of the acquired companies with the group.
We make sure that the company to be acquired is culturally fit for Boreo Group and is committed to Boreo way / values.
Healthy operative margins
High cash conversion
No integration to existing Business Areas
Sufficient scale either at acquisition or through a build-up after acquisition
Possibilities for value creation via Acquisitions and Operational Excellence
Specific characteristics for add-on acquisitions include:
Full or non-existent integration to existing businesses
Geographical or product offering expansion
Vertical and horizontal expansion in the value-chain
Small operational add-ons to larger stand-alone acquisitions
Our philosophy in acquiring companies is not built on capturing synergies with our existing operations and hence we limit the risk profile attached to growth via acquisitions. However, in daily operations we continuously focus on identifying synergies between our businesses to create growth of sales and earnings. Identifying and capturing synergies is an integral part of our Operational Excellence strategy.
We aim to acquire companies in Northern Europe and selected other geographies.
