Generic

Specialist in critical communication services

Generic Sweden AB, founded in 1993, engages in the provision of telecommunication services. The company specializes in critical communications through its own radio network and telecom operator. Simply explained, the company’s customers require a reliable network in the event of emergencies and other overloads, something that cannot be offered by regular telecommunication operators. The customers are found in social-critical functions like the police, emergency services, hospitals and municipalities.

A key opportunity for Generic lies within its ability to generate higher volumes on newly developed solutions for its customers. More demand from sectors that are in need of making their businesses more efficient and digital is an opportunity. Furthermore, the firm has a scalable business model.

After selling the consultancy business, Generic now operates only with its telecom system. The risk of not delivering an innovative product that customers are satisfied with is now larger, and can potentially lead to losing segments of its customers. Additionally, weaker future cash flows could lead to financial distress and/or lower or no dividend payout.
