Litorina Kapital acquires Resta – a leading growth company in the Swedish waste management market
Stockholm 19 January 2007 - Litorina Kapital acquires Resta, a leading growth company in the Swedish waste management market. Following the acquisition, Litorina will own approximately 75% of the company. The founders of Resta will remain in the company after the acquisition as shareholders with a 25% ownership and through their operative roles in the company.
Resta was founded in 2002 and the services offered by the company are collection, transportation, sorting and treatment of waste for municipalities and industrial customers. The Company has focused on growth in metropolitan areas and has a strong position in the Stockholm and Malmö regions today. The customers are large to medium sized municipalities and corporations, e.g. within management of paper recycling. The waste management market is a growing market due to the underlying increase of waste, both from households and from industry, and the increased demands on sorting and recycling. Resta has grown organically with 37% per year since 2003 and had a turnover of SEK 120 million in 2006, with good profitability. Resta has 130 employees and is headquartered in Stockholm.
- Resta is a well-managed growth company with a strong position in an interesting and growing market. The company has been very successful in building a strong position and a solid customer base. There are good future possibilities for further organic growth through expanding the number of municipal and industrial customers within specific niches. Given the fragmented characteristics of the market, with several regional players, there are additional opportunities for growth through acquisitions. Together with the company’s management and the founders we look forward to further develop Resta, says Jörgen Ekberg, Senior Partner at Litorina Kapital.
- We are excited about the future and we look forward to working together with Litorina to further develop Resta into one of the leading companies in the waste management industry. We will continue to grow organically and also look to acquire strategically positioned companies in new geographic regions and adding services to grow Resta to a full-service waste management company, say the current owners, Jesper De Ruvo and Christer Myhrán.
