Employees work together every day to strengthen our portfolio companies
As a committed owner, Nalka relies on its ability to support and develop companies and their strategies in order to strengthen their competitiveness and to create permanent value.
On paper, we are owners. In practice, we are first and foremost your partner. Together we build independent, competitive and profitable companies in the long-term.
Business development is a team sport and we do not only want to be spectators. Our role is shaped by the specific needs of each company, but always active. We support our companies in both operational and strategic issues by providing capital and expertise in order to achieve our common goals.
The goal is always a stronger company that we build together. We achieve this by implementing initiatives to strengthen the company's profitability and cash flows, as well as by creating a structure and long-term perspective in the company's strategy and vision.
We define and execute initiatives to continuously strengthen the company's competitiveness. Often during a period of 5 to 10 years, but sometimes for shorter or longer periods of time. We work together as long as we are the right partner given the company's situation and future development expectations.
We invest to support companies in their development, as opposed to only watching them develop. As the main owner or partner, there should always be a clear opportunity for us to actively contribute to the company’s development.
Our origin, operational understanding and long-term capital make us an attractive owner in many situations – not least in family-owned companies.
Nalka has a responsibility, not only towards our co-workers and portfolio companies, but also towards customers, suppliers, business partners and society at large. We are convinced that responsibility, long-term perspective and profitability go hand in hand.
Our investments are evaluated on financial and commercial criteria as well as environmental and social factors, governance and business ethical perspectives and values.
The Nalka ESG process covers the full investment cycle, from initial due diligence and acquisition, the ongoing management of portfolio companies and in the end – the divestment of a business.
The most important ESG work is done by our portfolio companies and Nalka’s ambition is to always be an active and demanding partner in all our investments.
We want to give each of our portfolio companies the resources and expertise it requires. Since our office is located in Stockholm, we mainly invest in Nordic companies. Nevertheless, we like our companies to have an established presence outside of the Nordics or a potential to grow beyond their existing markets.
