StrongPoint

Retail technology solutions

StrongPoint is a retail technology company that sells a wide variety of technology solutions that save costs, increase productivity, reduce theft or facilitate e-commerce sales for retailers. Its product portfolio includes electronic shelf labels, cash management systems, self-checkout terminals, click & collect lockers and digital e-commerce solutions. In addition, it holds strong positions in security cases for cash-in-transit and in adhesive labels. The company has strong positions in Norway, Sweden and the Baltics and is targeting to grow significantly in Spain.

The retail technology market is growing healthily, driven by e-commerce and a tough competitive landscape, forcing retailers to adopt new technology solutions to remain competitive. For StrongPoint, this creates a double opportunity: 1) StrongPoint delivers technology solutions that help retailers improve efficiency, and 2) StrongPoint sells e-commerce solutions to physical retailers that have their own online offerings. StrongPoint has a solid potential for future growth in Spain, which is a large and fragmented market and where the cash share is very high at 87%.

StrongPoint’s earnings are to some degree dependent on large product orders. If StrongPoint is unable to win large contracts from new or existing customers, it could pose a risk to its future sales and earnings growth. The Nordic grocery retail market is highly concentrated and several of these large chains are StrongPoint customers. Losing one of these customers could result in a significant loss of repeat business for StrongPoint. As there are some competing products, StrongPoint could be exposed to price pressure from new or existing competitors. Other risk factors include FX, macroeconomy, warranty issues and regulatory risks.
