Capacent

Capacent

Nordic management consultancy

Capacent is a management consulting company concentrated on corporate consulting, mainly focusing on improving customer profitability and cash flow. The company offers business-oriented consulting aiming, to deliver measurable results, from setting strategies to implementation and follow-ups. Capacent has a Nordic presence and a high level of involvement in customer operations. The customer base is broad in terms of number of customers and sectors represented.

The company has a strong overall offering with a broad service platform. The business model is also very asset-light as staff are the main asset and cost. The operational leverage should thus in the long term be able to strengthen margins as other costs than for personnel should not grow as fast as revenues. Furthermore, Capacent has further room for acquisitions.

Capacent is dependent on continuing demand for its services from current and new customers. Moreover, a tougher climate for hiring new consultants would affect Capacent’s organic growth. Furthermore, the Finnish operations are more volatile than the other divisions due to more performance-based earnings. This means that on a quarterly basis, operations can be significantly more volatile than the rest of the group.
