Tutor:                      Fredrik Jeanson

 

Keywords:              Private equity, private equity firm, investment process, criteria, evaluation

 

Research

questions:                ·    What does the investment process look like in Swedish private equity firms?

  • Which criteria do the Swedish private equity firms use when evaluating companies?
  • How does the investment process differ depending on the industry in which the company they invest in is operating?

Purpose:                  The purpose of this case study is to describe what the investment process looks like in two Swedish private equity firms and which criteria they use when evaluating companies and whether the investment process differs depending on which industry the company they invest in is operating.

 

Method:                  In this case study, a qualitative method with a deductive approach has been used. Semi-structured interviews have been the empirical material that, together with the theoretical reference framework, formed the basis for the analysis and conclusions of the thesis.

 

Conclusion:             This study has shown common features in the investment process of two Swedish private equity firms and that this process does not differ significantly depending on the industry in which the investment object operates. The study has also shown that the venture capital firms use similar criteria when evaluating investment objects, but that they emphasize the criteria differently.

Titel:                        Riskkapital – Svenska riskkapitalbolags investeringsprocesser och bedömningskriterier

 

Handledare:           Fredrik Jeanson

 

Nyckelord:              Riskkapital, riskkapitalbolag, investeringsprocess, kriterier, bedömning

 

Frågeställning:       ·    Hur ser svenska riskkapitalbolags investeringsprocess ut?

  • Vilka kriterier använder sig de svenska riskkapitalbolagen av vid bedömning av bolag?
  • Hur skiljer sig investeringsprocessen åt beroende på vilken bransch som bolaget de investerar i befinner sig?

 

 

Syfte:                       Syftet med denna fallstudie är att beskriva två svenska riskkapitalbolags investeringsprocesser och vilka kriterier de använder sig utav vid bedömning av bolag. Vidare ska det undersökas om investeringsprocessen skiljer sig åt beroende på vilken bransch bolaget de investerar i befinner sig.

 

 

Metod:                     I denna fallstudie har en kvalitativ metod med en deduktiv ansats använts. Semistrukturerade intervjuer har utgjort det empiriska materialet som tillsammans med den teoretiska referensramen legat till grund för uppsatsens analys och slutsats.

 

Slutsats:                   Denna studie har visat på några gemensamma drag i två svenska riskkapitalbolags investeringsprocesser samt att investeringsprocessen inte skiljer sig nämnvärt åt beroende på vilken bransch investeringsobjektet opererar i. Studien har också påvisat att bolagen använder liknande kriterier vid bedömningen av investeringsobjekt men att de betonar kriterierna olika.
