Pegroco invests in smaller and medium sized companies, predominantly unlisted and in Sweden with a focus on building value long-term. The investments are spread over many business categories as Pegroco’s assessment is that such diversification over time gives the best return for Pegrocos shareholders. During 2020 the companies that make up the Pegroco Group had a total turnover of 1 530 million Swedish crowns, compared to 929 million for 2019, an increase of 65 percent. Pegroco has six employees and its head office in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Pegroco is an active and long-term owner without a predetermined investment horizon. The business model is to identify suitable investment objects, acquire a minority or majority, build value by developing the investment object’s business and to, in various ways, make the created value visible to Pegroco’s shareholders, for example through a stock market listing.
Small to medium size companies, reasonable valuations
Pegroco primarily seeks companies with an established position in a B2B market. Pegroco’s experience shows that the large supply of companies in the small to medium size company segments, in combination with less acquisition competition for these size companies, result in lower acquisition valuations. Pegroco invests primarily in companies with proven business model, strong market position and a stable positive cash flow. An important investment criterion is that the company has a strong entrepreneurial culture and a business-oriented management.
Expansion through M&A, hub-companies
Pegroco builds value in the holdings through business development. Business development strategies vary from company to company but ideally involves forming hub-companies around which Pegroco can make additional acquisitions of complementary companies to consolidate a business segment, or add additional customer offerings, in order to build a stronger competitive position on the market. Examples of hub-companies in Pegrocos portfolio are Nordisk Bergteknik and Nordic Lift.
Pegroco’s ambition is that its ownership in the portfolio companies exceeds fifty percent. Pegroco currently consolidates six portfolio companies, the hub-companies Nordisk Bergteknik and Nordic Lift, and the companies Calormet, Stockholms Spårvägar, Infraservice Group, and eSite Power Systems.
Pegroco’s employees have a broad experience of company development and business transactions. Their varied backgrounds give the company a wide knowledge base. Our strength is our capacity to integrate our industrial operational competence with our financial creativity into solutions to develop companies further.
