Several trends indicate a greater need for servicing and installation over the coming years: Demands for efficient energy usage are growing and technological developments are creating new opportunities in properties. And significant public investment is being made in the Nordic region, including in infrastructure, health care and education.
Bravida has significant risk diversification. Around half of the business consists of recurring servicing and maintenance work. With more than 55,000 customers, we aren’t dependent on any one assignment or project. Together, this provides a high degree of predictability and stability for sales
We have excellent growth prospects, but we don’t want to grow at any price. We only take on assignments with calculable risks and we always prioritise margins over growth. This generates results. We have grown organically in recent years, while also retaining profitability.
Bravida’s approach, the Bravida Way, is based on the key principle that our local branches are at the heart of our business. Each local branch is responsible for its own earnings. They are supported by Bravida’s group-wide tools and methods. Continual follow-up ensures that together we create a profitable business with good cash flow.
Our market in the Nordic region largely consists of lots of small companies, giving us a basis for long-term growth through acquisitions. We mainly acquire companies that complement our offering locally. Acquisitions also provide us with greater opportunities to achieve synergies in the business.
Bravida’s cash conversion has remained stable for many years. One of Bravida’s financial targets is to distribute at least 50 percent of net profit as dividends to shareholders.
