Hifab is one of Sweden's largest and leading project management companies and operates projects primarily in Sweden, but internationally as well. The company supports its customers through all stages of a construction project, from early strategic issues to completion and management. Hifab's overall financial goal is to achieve a profit margin of 7% of sales over a business cycle. With 300+ employees, Hifab provides its services for various types of building, infrastructure, industry, environment, energy and process technology projects.
We see further growth opportunities for Hifab in engaging in M&A activity for complementary acquisitions for its business. Further demand for investments in infrastructure, and other projects for various industries should continue to drive growth. More internal efficiencies should continue to benefit the margin.
Hifab faces the risk of temporary problems in the international as well as the Swedish business from delayed project starts and postponed procurements for new projects. Also, it is no longer able to compete in project procurements from Multilateral Development Banks due to sanctions against the firm. Additionally, Hifab faces the risks from not being able to attract new consultants.
