We develop your company through active ownership
AddLife is always looking for new Life Science companies that can bolster the Company’s existing operations or contribute with new product or market segments where the conditions are right for taking leading niche positions. Growth through acquisition is an important and central component of business and organisational growth and necessary to achieve the Company’s financial target for long-term earnings growth.
Acquisitions for development
AddLife acquires companies in order to maintain and further develop them in the long term. The new companies, many of which are often managed by their founders and entrepreneurs, contribute with a presence in new market segments, complementary suppliers and skilled employees with a strong entrepreneurial spirit.
For many founders who want to sell their company, AddLife offers an attractive option since the Company’s decentralised business model means that the companies continue to operate independently within the frame of AddLife’s management.
Long history of acquisitions
AddLife has a long history of acquisitions of companies and has developed a clear and successful process for integrating and developing acquired companies
The road to a successful acquisition for both buyers and sellers may well take several years, which minimises risk and improves the prospects of a satisfactory outcome for both the parties and the key employees. In each acquisition process the company is evaluated according to a series of acquisition criteria that, when met, provide a solid foundation for further development within AddLife. Subsidiaries, which as a rule are wholly-owned, usually continue operations under their own brand, but are grafted to AddLife’s corporate culture and financial governance model.
AddLife’s governance model is implemented in the new subsidiary in conjunction with the acquisition. A new Board of Directors is appointed for the company, while corporate governance and operational management change to be brought into line with AddLife’s models and tools.
