INVESTMENT FOCUS

SCOPE

Orlando Nordics AB concentrates on companies in special situations with revenues up to SEK 5 billion, with an EBIT margin ranging from negative up to high double-digit positive. Such special situations include succession-related issues, complex carve-out situations, liquidity constraints or need of operative restructuring. For transaction volumes exceeding Enterprise Value of SEK 1.5 billion, co-investors are brought in.

FOCUS

Orlando Nordics looks for market-ready medium-sized companies, group subsidiaries or divisions in spin-off situations. The market for the company’s core business should be stable and its market position defensible. Complexity is not a handicap. Geographically, we focus on Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland, while add-on acquisitions are pursued worldwide. We do not restrict ourselves to particular industries.

OUR SPECIALTIES

We specialize in strategic realignment of companies, management buy-outs and buy-ins, turnaround consulting, succession issues, companies with liquidity difficulties, financing of add-ons to access new markets, spin-outs requiring capital and management capacity, companies with poor earnings positions and even insolvent companies. The funds advised by us acquire majority shareholdings.
