Comprising companies in the industrial and consumer sectors, Seafire is a business group that acquires and develops small companies in Sweden. The group was founded in 2016 and focuses on acquiring profitable, smaller companies with development potential. The group structure is decentralised, enabling group management to focus on adding new companies to the group.
Acquisitions are an integral part of Seafire's business model. If prices of targets rise, this would hurt the company's ability to carry out value-accretive M&A. If the economy weakens, this could affect the earnings stability of acquisition targets, and thus prolong negotiations. The risk associated with integrating acquired companies into the group is also prominent.
