NestCap acquires profitable SMEs with proven business models and long-term value creation.
NestCap invests into established, profitable SMEs with proven business models and long-term value creation focused on three main business areas: industry, services, and trade in the Baltic Sea region and beyond. NestCap targets acquisition of a majority shareholding with an aim to hold long-term, ideally forever. We keep the original founders involved and motivated to benefit from post-acquisition performance by focusing on processes, automation, digitalization, strategic management, and decreasing carbon footprint.
Our investors benefit from the high-value growth of companies not publicly listed, amplified by improved access to networking and further scalability, complementary capital and efficiency, along with professional corporate governance. Our values guide our investments and the principles for managing our portfolio.
NestCap’s portfolio will be listed on the public stock exchange within the years to come. This gives both portfolio companies and investors a great opportunity to benefit from improved visibility, business networks, valuations, and financing opportunities through listing. Portfolio companies benefit from earlier access to stock market investors, while investors get easy access to small- and medium-sized, fast-growing, and well-managed companies, without excessive exposure to the individual companies. Similar investment structures to back SMEs have proved to be extremely effective and are widely used in many places around the globe.
FREEDOM COMES WITH RESPONSIBILITY
NestCap does not micromanage portfolio companies, as we believe every decision must be made at the level of the most information present, within the framework of set rules and limits. This approach improves effectiveness, eliminates suboptimal business decisions and focuses, and maximizes shareholder value. Potential target companies’ values and culture are examined thoroughly to exercise acquisitions with a great value match with NestCap in place.
VALUE CREATION IS THE KEY TO PROSPERITY
We believe that the continued success and benefit of companies and their shareholders is based on the value created for customers.
Full transparency toward investors, partners, the state, and our portfolio companies is a must on which we do not compromise.
THE NETWORK BRINGS BENEFITS
Our extensive network of beneficial business contacts – including partners, investors, advisors, and portfolio companies – is employed to benefit our portfolio companies. Access to new markets, industry professionals, and new business opportunities are the focus of our regular managerial club meetings, where all of our business leaders share their experiences and bring value to fellow directors.
VERTICAL APPROACH WITH GROWTH POTENTIAL
NestCap invests in companies that control most of the business vertical in their domain. This makes our portfolio less dependent on fluctuations in the overall business environment and less susceptible to external volatility. Our portfolio companies are well-established industry leaders in specific markets. Joining the NestCap network leverages their strengths in replicating success further in untouched markets.
NestCap acquires a controlling majority of the target companies, while maintaining managerial minority ownership to keep an entrepreneurial mindset and long-term value creation alive.
PROFITABLE ESTABLISHED COMPANIES WITH A PROVEN TRACK RECORD
While overnight success is most often correlated with luck, we base NestCap’s success in long-term people development, creation of know-how, technology adoption, and business process development.
DIGITALIZATION BRINGS AN EDGE
Our network of experts in digitalization and automation brings enormous value to the companies we acquire. Companies with a limited level of digitalization and automation are given an extra boost to help them grow to a higher level of effectiveness.
