Acquisitions

We develop your company through active ownership

Do you have a Life Science company where there are opportunities to grow and take a leading niche position or are you facing a generation shift?

For many founders who want to sell their company, AddLife offers an attractive option as our decentralized business model means that the companies are run independently within the framework of AddLife's management. The companies continue to be led by the founders and entrepreneurs, but AddLife adds financial stability, resources and tools that make it easier and more efficient to develop the business. For example, we have our own business school, AddLife Academy, and several networks in the Group within different focus areas.

Long history of acquisitions

AddLife has acquired and integrated many companies over the years and from this experience, a clear and successful process has been developed for the integration and development of acquired companies.

The road to a successful acquisition for both sellers and buyers may take several years, which improves the prospects of a satisfactory outcome for both the parties and employees. In each acquisition process, the company is evaluated according to a number of acquisition criteria that, when met, provide good conditions for further development within AddLife. Subsidiaries, which are wholly owned, usually continue their own brand, but are embodied in AddLife's corporate culture and model of financial management. 

Growth through acquisitions is an important and central part of Business and Organizational Development within AddLife, and future growth is expected to be partially achieved through continued acquisitions.
