Volati is looking for well-run businesses, companies with leading market positions and strong cash flows.
We diligently evaluate new acquisitions and the bottom line is that we must make each acquisition at a reasonable valuation. We would rather risk missing a good deal than risk implementing a bad deal. With this principle as the foundation for the selection process, we perform a full evaluation involving a number of key acquisition criteria.
A track record of solid profitability.
Strong cash flows.
A well-proven business model. Consequently, we avoid start-up companies or companies in need of restructuring.
Be the market leader or hold a strong market position within its area of specialty.
We acquire at least a majority holding in the target company, with the aim of obtaining control. Majority holdings allow Volati to act through the boards, contribute to strategy and function as a catalyst for the development and expansion of the companies.
In the case of platform acquisitions, that is, companies in new operating areas, we are primarily looking for companies with a positive EBITDA of not less than SEK 20m. On the other hand, add-on acquisitions are not size-dependent, since strategic qualification is central to their evaluation.
Platform acquisitions are implemented within the Nordic region with the main focus on the Swedish market, while add-on acquisitions may take place in other Nordic or European countries.
