We invest in special situations

Lazarus is an investment company, acquiring majority shares in companies in vulnerable positions due to financial or operational challenges, but where there are likely prospects for operational improvements. In addition to such special situations, we are actively seeking businesses being divested from larger corporations or groups (carve-outs and spin-offs).

How Lazarus invests

Investments criteria

We are aware that each situation is unique, and we evaluate each investment opportunity on a case-by-case basis. Therefore, our investment criteria serve only as guidelines.

Investment philosophy

Lazarus’ investment philosophy is to invest in companies that, for various reasons, have strayed off course and need help improving the situation. We want to give these companies a second chance. The goal is to save companies and jobs, and at the same time create value for our investors.

Lazarus investment portfolio consists of 8 platform companies, which collectively generate a turnover of over 4 billion SEK and employ more than 750 individuals. The companies’ headquarters are in the Nordics, with one exception, and are active in diverse industries.
