Why invest in Spotlight Group?
Large underlying market –
Structural long-term trend where growth companies choose public ownership and listing. There are more than 43,000 companies in Sweden in the SME category1), which indicates continued great market potential. An equally important trend to emphasize is that already listed companies continue to grow, meaning that their capital needs over time, and thus the transactions that are carried out, generally become greater. Spotlight Group is correctly positioned to take additional market shares as the market grows.
Increasing recurring revenue –
Above 40 percent of the Group’s revenue is recurring, which provides a good basis for future growth. The Group has had an annual average revenue growth of about 10 percent over the past five years, and the Board sees significant opportunities for continued increased growth in the future.
Strong business model and market position –
The group consists of an open platform of stock market-oriented and scalable businesses and services, with strong revenue and development synergies between the various components. The Group’s market position and the expertise of the staff mean that the needs that arise in the market are quickly picked up and provide opportunities to start new businesses, as has been proven in the past year.
