The Idun Group is a privately owned permanent development- and ownership partner to small and medium sized companies with a base in Sweden - but often with international operations and sales. Therefore, we do not make investments in companies with the aim to later sell them.
All Idun’s group companies have a relatively strong focus, often with a high or very high market share and substantial entry barriers, within one or a couple of small market niches.
Idun does not use any standardized frameworks or blueprints for what a co-ownership situation or its governance should look like. The structure is always case dependent, and tailored to suit the needs of the seller and the company in question.
Idun’s group companies are led by strong, independent management teams. Business decisions are made as close to customers and suppliers as possible, by the people in charge of each respective company, rather than at a Board level. Idun primary responsibility is to ensure that each company has access to the personnel, financial and other resources necessary to succeed.
We prefer co-ownership of each company with its key employees. If current owners wish to sell 100% of their shares, we seek to offer current and/or new employees an ownership stake.
The group companies in many cases over time show high profitability and strong cash flows, and have a financial history characterized by stable profitable growth.
Idun has no exact limits or thresholds when it comes to size or stake – what is more important is the company in question and its people

A discussion between Idun and its owner where we listen and try to understand your company and unique situation. Either Idun has taken the initiative to meet, or you have contacted us.
If mutual interest arises, this is followed by deeper "interviews" with you about the company, and after that, a first discussion about key terms of an investment.
Idun does a deeper review of the company including the business, customers and finance. The analysis is made in-house by Idun rather than by external consultants.
What we have agreed on an overall level is documented and further detailed in an agreement, which also contains price and payment terms.
