Lagercrantz Group is a financially strong and long-term owner which has the strength to develop companies further. The executive management in each individual company has considerable freedom, but also responsibility for developing and implementing the company’s strategy.
Lagercrantz has an express ambition to grow by acquiring companies. The aim is to strengthen an existing market position or to enter new markets and technology areas. We are a long-term owner and therefore buy companies we believe in and where we see long-term development potential. Our business model, with autonomous subsidiaries, means that we are interested in companies that operate in different areas provided that the company has proven earning power, and a strong market position within a technical niche.
Lagercrantz believes that a business executive who has responsibility must also have freedom to act. In practice, this means that Lagercrantz Group’s subsidiaries are run independently towards defined goals with a high degree of independent decision-making and flexibility.
OFFER TO YOU AS SELLER
Lagercrantz is a Swedish listed company with resources: experience, know-how, contact network and capital. As new owner, Lagercrantz offers you evolution rather than a revolution which usually means that the management is afforded the opportunity to:
- Continue running the company in the accustomed manner.
- Retain profile and corporate name.
- Develop the organisation on the basis of existing staff.
- Strengthen the work relating to growth and development.
- Increase the confidence in the company through a stable and financially strong owner.
- Provide the financial muscle for development of good new business ideas.
The role of the group management at Lagercrantz is to support the management teams of the subsidiaries in developing the companies further.
MANY STAY AND GROW WITH US
In most cases when Lagercrantz buys a company it is desirable and customary that key people remain in the company in order to grow with us. It is also common that we come in as owner when the company is facing a succession process, a situation we have broad experience of and which we handle and work out with all of the parties involved.
A MAJOR ISSUE REQUIRES TIME AND CONSIDERATION
Lagercrantz Group has a 100-year history of owning and developing companies to fall back on. Selling a company is a multi-facetted issue which requires reflection and it is usually not just a question of money. At Lagercrantz, we have a team that works with company takeovers led by Magnus Söderlind. Contact him for an initial confidential discussion. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
