CEO’s greetings

Demand for acquisitions is strong

Jarmo Pakarinen - Suomen Yritysmyynti Oy:n toimitusjohtajaMay 25, 2021

In many ways, our economy has been disciplined in the midst of the Covid-19. Now, however, it seems that the world is “waking up” and demand is growing strongly. Demand is also brisk for acquisitions. Our customers in Finland and now also in Sweden are looking for something to buy.

Despite the coronavirus, acquisitions have been made and it seems that the demand for a successful Finnish companies has only increased. The uncertainty caused by corona has not weakened interest in acquisitions, but rather the opposite.

Sure Covid-19 has had an impact on many individual companies, but in the big picture, the interest and need for acquisitions has been excellent. Even more problematic has been that sellers have been hesitant and have not dared to start the sales process for fear that the price currently available from the company might be lower. However, this is not the case, but the acquisition market is at a good level in terms of demand and financiers and investors are looking for good targets.

So there seems to be a lot of money for acquisitions and different items are being sought. In addition to our own operations, we have also started our operations in Sweden. We are pleased to say that our Swedish customers are really interested in Finnish companies.

All in all, we can only say that the demand for acquisitions is currently at a very excellent level. Our customers are looking for companies in many different industries and feel that the rising demand in the global economy will only reinforce this trend.

So if the sale or reorganization of the company has been planned, now is a really good time for it. We are happy to serve you in these matters and hope that we can be leading the path of many Finnish companies through acquisitions.
