PION Group is a growth company that creates synergy effects between the portfolio companies in the sphere. Today, PION Group consists of Poolia, QRIOS Life Scicence, QRIOS IT, QRIOS Management Consulting, Uniflex, Workspace Recruit, Roi Rekrytering and Student Node. PION Group is present in Sweden, Norway and Finland. PION Group works to increase the competitiveness of society by accelerating change, raising and developing competence and optimizing it by matching needs with demanded abilities and providing the market with digital tools and insights. The main owner is the tech group Danir Resources.
The business model is capital-light and growth can be generated without the need for larger investments. For the same reason, the model results in strong cash flow and high payout ratios, meaning room for great dividends. PION Group is furthermore a well-established brand with 30 years of history. We think the company should be able to attract more consultants with its strong brand, resulting in growth at least in line with the sector.
Staffing companies are in general contracted as a flexible part of a company’s workforce. Their services are therefore attractive when the economy is expanding and the quick addition of labour is needed for businesses to meet customer demand. Therefore, PION Group is naturally sensitive to changes in the business cycle, and with the inclusion of blue-collar staff through Uniflex increases this sensitivity. The addition of the QRIOS brand is aimed at reducing the cyclicality via a consultancy offering with a longer business cycle.
