More about Addtech

Addtech the acquirer

To expand its franchises geographically and by product market, Addtech has relied on a program of acquisitions. For example, they have acquired family-owned businesses. Their strategy post-acquisition involves keeping the individual businesses largely independent, to not micromanage. Freedom with responsibility is their fundamental principle, permeating the entire organization.

The company intelligently identifies and cultivates acquisition candidates. They add value from various sources and share best practices broadly, using thoughtful managerial accounting systems that aid individual units in improving profitability and returns on capital employed.

They combine the flexibility, personal touch and efficiency of a small business with the resources, networks, and long-term perspective of a large company. Addtech also provides capital to the individual divisions if needed, to make investments in, say product development, sales capability, or additional acquisitions.

This scalable model enables the company to grow multidimensionally. The combination of increased geographical presence and greater spread among customer segments makes Addtech less vulnerable to individual trends and declines. A broad spread builds beneficial resilience.

Why serial acquirers?

Peter Lynch, legendary fund manager and author of the bestselling books One Up on Wall Street and Beating the Street, says the following about acquisitive companies: “Acquisitions, in general, make me nervous,” and “There´s a tendency for companies that are flush with cash and feeling powerful to overpay for acquisitions, to expect too much from them, and then mismanage them".

However, many acquirers have found great success. These are disciplined, strategic and long-term players who have managed to crack the code for capitalizing fully on the strengths of the acquired companies, without impeding them.

The alluring with serial acquirers is the possibility of the companies to reinvest most of their free cash flow, for a very long time at high rates of return.

The serial acquirer or “Compounder” has the benefit of becoming a more diversified business over time. The great compounder, hence, has the ability to acquire at high rates of return, and simultaneously have less idiosyncratic risk.

Addtech sees their acquisition strategy as a cornerstone in generating long-term growth in profits and shareholder value. Acquired companies bring additional sales volumes, customers, and expertise, and, in particular, motivated employees and entrepreneurs. Furthermore, new companies bring opportunities for synergies and development.
