Lagercrantz

Supplier of technology in expansive niches

Lagercrantz is a technology trading company group in expansive niches offering value creating technology to corporate customers. The operations are conducted according to a decentralized model with 50+ independent companies divided into 4 divisions, Electronics, Mechatronics, Communications and Niche Products. Acquiring new companies is a central part of the business model. Lagercrantz has an increasing proportion of proprietary products, which enables enhanced control of the value chain and supports higher margins. The share is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Mid Cap, since 2001.

The recent years’ export initiatives could improve organic growth more than we currently assume. Increased proportion of proprietary products and acquisitions of product-companies have the potential for further margin expansion.

Poor development in individual subsidiaries, overall weaker market conditions, abrupt competition in a specific niche-area. Inflated acquisitions multiple.
