Pegroco invests in small to medium sized unlisted companies primarily in Sweden
Pegroco is an investment company that invests in smaller and medium sized unlisted companies, predominantly in Sweden. We primarily seek companies with an established market position and preferably those that have a need for a major change. It can be in that the company needs a new organizational structure or to change how it does its business. It can for example be when management wants to buy out the operation from the owners, or when the entrepreneur owner wants to expand the company into new business opportunities but lacks resources. Or it can simply be when the owner wants to sell out after many years of hard work.
We are active owners and we focus on investments where we can contribute to building value in the company. We do this by using our collective operational, industrial and financial experience, and our strong business network.
Pegroco also has a professional services business area, Pegroco Advisory, which offers services within capital procurement, company transactions and business development.
We have during our ten years in operation made over twenty investments. Our investments during 2016 were in the measuring technology company Mantex AB in April , in the drilling and blasting company Norrbottens Bergteknik AB in May, in the lift service company RC Hisservice AB in November, and in December in the auto maintenance company Mechanum and in the acquisition of KL Ventures II AB.We have then continued to build around Norrbottens Bergteknik by acquiring three of Norway’s leading companies within drilling and blasting, Vestfold Fjellborring AS and Norsk Fjellspregning AS in 2017 and Songdalen Fjellsprenging AS in 2018.
We have offices in Gotehnburg and Stockholm. Pegroco has over the last ten years perfomed well over twenty investments. The company’s latest and most important exits were the sale of Scandinavian Air Ambulance in June 2014, and of Diakrit in February 2016, which generated returns of 5,3x and 3,5x invested capital respectively.
Holdings portfolio, Base and Growth
Pegroco seeks a balance between the investment categories Base and Growth. Pegrocos assessment is that this balance over time will give Pegroco’s shareholders the best return. During the twelve months up to March 31, 2018 Pegrocos Base and Growth portfolios had a combined turnover of 1 366 MSEK. Further to active holdings Pegroco has holdings in a number of other companies where Pegrocos owner’s share is smaller. The companied turnover of the whole portfolio is 1 815 MSEK.
Investment category Base
The investment in this category should have a proven business model, a strong market position and, over time, a stable positive car flow. Pegrocos ambition is to own over 50 percent.
Investment category Growth
In the Growth category there are several technology companies. Common for these are that the technology should have tangible and computable financial customer benefits, scalability and international export potential.
