Pipeline of LOI and considering bond issue
At the date of the report, the company has signed five additional non-binding letters of intent regarding company acquisitions (the "Acquisitions") that are expected to be completed in the near future. Novedo’s aggregated revenue after closing are expected to increase by approximately SEK 1,000 million whilst EBITDA is expected to increase of approximately SEK 150 million on an annual basis. Novedo is considering using existing cash and bond financing to finance the Acquisitions. The Company has mandated ABG Sundal Collier AB and Pareto Securities AB as joint bookrunners to investigate the possibility of a subsequent bond issue (the "Bond Issue") under the Company’s existing 2021/2024 bond framework with ISIN SE0017070980. The Bond Issue is intended to be carried out subject to inter alia prevailing market conditions.
CEO comment, Per-Johan Dahlgren
”During the second quarter we have continued to grow our industrial group. So far in 2022, we have acquired eight new companies. Since the start, a little over a year ago, we have completed 19 acquisitions and the group has pro forma net sales of approximately SEK 2,050 million with an EBITDA of approximately SEK 260 million** twelve-months rolling. Our new acquisitions mean that we can now rightfully call ourselves an industrial group focused on three segments, Infrastructure, Installation and Services, and Industry. The fact that the companies are in these different segments contributes to a valuable risk diversification for the Group. At Novedo, our focus is to maintain and ensure competence and capacity in order to offer fast, efficient, and customised support to the entire group as an owner.”
Outlook for 2022
The difficult situation in the world around us and the increased inflation create uncertainty. Our operations are naturally not unaffected; however, our companies continue to develop favorably and the fact that our companies have a very low level of exposure towards major fixed-price projects remains an advantage for us. Also, our decentralised model, with companies in niche positions, where our experienced entrepreneurs, through good and close relationships with their clients and suppliers, protect their margins efficiently which makes the high inflation manageable.
*The English version of the interim report will be published on the 26th of August.
**For the portfolio companies the corresponding value is approximately SEK 290 million.
***Pro forma refers to the period Jult 2021 – June 2022 for the companies Novedo has fully acquired and signed agreements to acquire as per August 19, 2022, and has been recalculated to show the results as if Novedo had owned the companies throughout the period. These pro forma figures do not include balance sheet amounts as Novedo has not completed all of the acquisitions.
