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. The company has focus on building value long-term.
The business model is to indentify suitable investments, acquire a minority or majority of the company, build value by developing the company’s business and to in various ways make visible the created value.
Pegroco’s main holdings currently comprises Nordisk Bergteknik, Nordic Lift, Stockholms Spårvägar, Mechanum and Nordic MRO. During 2018 these companies had a combines turnover of 1 333 MSEK. For the first three quarters of 2019 the combined turnover had grown to 1 845 MSEK. Further to these active holdings Pegroco has holdings in other companies where Pegrocos owner’s share is smaller.
We are active and long-term owners without a predetermined investment horizon. We focus on investments where we can contribute to building value in the company by using our collective operational, industrial and financial experience, and our strong business network. Our business idea is that what we contribute with complements the companies’ entrepreneurs and management and their business ideas and drive, to build more value than what they would do on their own. We primarily seek companies with an established market position and preferably those that have a need for 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. We recognise the importance on the the key personnel’s role in the businesses we invest in and will normally want them to continue to be part of the business going forward.
Our head office is in Gothenburg. Pegroco has over the last ten years performed well over twenty investments. The company’s largest exits to date 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.
