Value creation

Thorough evaluation of any investment opportunity is key to Nordic Capital's approach. Before pursuing any opportunities, Nordic Capital's investment professionals will assess the attractiveness and business dynamic of the industry in which the target company operates and its impact on society and key stakeholders. In the investment valuation we place particular emphasis on the competitive position of the company and the potential for operational improvements. This strategic assessment ensures Nordic Capital has a clear view of the potential of the target company, its growth and development opportunities. 

Once an investment opportunity has been identified, Nordic Capital follows six key value creation themes:

Structural transformation Identifies synergies made visible through the merger process and unlocks potential value. Examples: Nybron, Mölnlycke Health Care and Hilding Anders Read the Hilding Anders case study >
Operational improvement Identifies and realises operational improvement opportunities such as cost and capital improvement or revenue enhancing initiatives. Examples: Capio, Leaf, Unomedical, BE Group and Permobil Read the Permobil case study >
Buy-and-Build A platform to realise a growth trajectory along a clearly defined, acquisition growth path. Examples: Unilabs, Falck and Ahlsell Read the Falck case study >
Emerging market growth Either by exporting and/or adopting existing business concepts to emerging market environments. Examples: Luvata, Munters and Britax Read the Nycomed case study >
Strategic repositioning Changing the business model and/or the repositioning of a seemingly unattractive business into a more attractive one. Examples: Point and Nycomed Read the Point International case study >
Growth acceleration Identifies companies which are well positioned for accelerated growth in adjacent geographies or product markets. Examples: Atos Medical, Marioff, Dynal Biotech, Intentia and Point International Read the Atos Medical case study >
