Business model

By providing access to thorough ownership skills and operational expertise, EQT can help acquired companies grow and prosper.

EQT invests in good companies across the world with a mission to help them develop into great and sustainable companies. By providing access to ownership skills and operational expertise, EQT can help acquired companies grow and prosper, both under EQT's ownership and with future owners.

The portfolio companies develop and grow through the implementation of industrial strategies geared towards growth and operational excellence. The strategies are driven by the appointed CEO and board members, generally from EQT's Industrial Network, and monitored by the Investment Advisory Professionals.

Development and growth is the core of the value creation. Sales growth and margin expansion are achieved through multiple strategies, including geographic expansion, new products, acquisitions and strategic re-orientation.

The most tangible result of the EQT Business Model is that EQT's portfolio companies have on average increased the number of employees by 11%, sales by 8% and earnings by 11% annually during EQT funds' ownership. Almost all of the return on investments is attributed to operational improvements such as increased sales and efficiency gains.
