Atvexa

Atvexa

Early educational provider

Atvexa is an education provider active in Sweden, Norway and Germany. The company operates with a simple acquisition strategy, acquiring companies at low multiples and then running the acquired subsidiary in a decentralised structure with no major operational changes. Atvexa mainly runs preschools, which comprise ~85% of its total facilities. Its main countries are Sweden and Norway, where 98% of its total facility base is located.

The Swedish market is in structural growth and The Ministry of Finance has announced an extensive need for more capacity in both preschools and elementary schools. Furthermore, consolidation in the sector is still at an early stage. The top five acquisition players in the Swedish and Norwegian preschool market have a combined market share of ~17%, a number that will likely increase.

With an annual growth target of 15% and a core business that is growing by low single digits, Atvexa is heavily dependent on keeping up its acquisition tempo. This also means that the company is dependent on acquisition multiples staying low. If there a multiple change in acquisitions of private education providers were to occur, the company could see problems with its acquisition growth.
