During 2018 Ratos updated the investment criterias for new investments:
- Headquartered in the Nordics
- Good profitability compared to peers
- Size >50 MSEK EBITA
- Cash flow and debt leverage to provide dividend
- Strong management and culture
Ratos has no limits to its holding period for its companies, but is a long-term owner with a flexible ownership horizon thanks to the fact that we invest capital from our own balance sheet. Ratos strives to be a majority shareholder in its companies, but can also choose to co-invest with other owners.
