Fra bonden til bordet med Dyrket.no

Sommeren går mot slutten, og åkere, kulturlandskap og drivhus landet rundt bugner av friske råvarer klare for å finne veien inn til kjøkken i de tusen hjem. Nettopp disse kvalitetsvarene fra lokale småprodusenter var det Jørgen Harsem ville forenkle logistikken for da han stiftet selskapet Dyrket.no tilbake i 2015, og i dag leverer Dyrket.no lokalproduserte matvarer til både privatkunder, restauranter og butikker.

Ved kutting av fordyrende mellomledd tar de sikte på å gjøre økologisk og biodynamisk bærekraftig produksjon levedyktig også i økonomisk forstand. Med sin egenutviklede teknologi effektiviseres hele salgs- og distribusjonsprosessen slik at bonden kan fokusere på det å faktisk produsere så god kvalitet som mulig.

Softwareselskapet er en av de mange spennende bedriftene Rieber & Søn er så heldige å få være involvert i, og det er stadig høy aktivitet hos dem. Denne sommeren har de også bidratt med oppgaver til de seks interne sommerstudentene, som har fått bidra blant annet med strategiarbeid, analyser og kartlegging. Da Dyrket.no igangsatte et av de tilknyttede prosjektene allerede uken etter levering fikk studentene i tillegg virkelig se nytten av arbeidet sitt.

Vi gleder oss til veien videre!

Summerinterns Rieber & Søn 2021

Summerinterns Rieber & Søn 2021 1290 806 Rieber & Søn


En hilsen fra sommerstudentene

Vi er 6 heldige studenter som har fått muligheten til å tilbringe sommeren hos Rieber & Søn.

Som Summer Interns har vi fått jobbe med en rekke ulike prosjekter for selskapets porteføljeselskaper. Læringskurven har vært bratt, ingen dager har vært like og vi har gledet oss til å gå på jobb hver dag.

Da vi spent møtte opp første arbeidsdag i Kalfaret ble vi tatt imot av mange blide fjes. I løpet av dagen fikk vi mulighet til å bedre kjent med både hverandre, de ansatte og Rieber & Søn. Etter workshops og en god lunsj ble vi delt inn i to team og presentert for sommerens første prosjekter.

Et typisk prosjekt har startet med en utfyllende prosjekt- og selskapsintroduksjon. På tross av at vi har vært delt inn i to team, så har vi fått delta på alle prosjektintroduksjoner og prosjektfremleggelser – noe som har vært veldig spennende. Ved utførelse av prosjekt har vi fått frie tøyler til å tolke og utforme prosjektene selv. Noen av prosjektene har tatt et par uker, mens andre har tatt hele sommeren. Friheten til å vurdere hvilket prosjekt som bør jobbes med, samt friheten til å forme oppgavene selv, har vært både utfordrende og lærerik. Hvert prosjekt har blitt avsluttet med en presentasjon for prosjektgiver og ledelsen. Det har vært interessant å få tilbakemeldinger på jobben vi har gjort, og vi har hele veien følt at det vi har gjort har betydning. Vi har allerede fått se hvordan det vi har jobbet med har blitt brukt av prosjektgiver, noe som er veldig motiverende. Andre prosjekter har lagt et fundament for fremtidige beslutninger, og vi gleder oss derfor til å følge med fremover.

Det har vært interessant å få et innblikk i hvordan et dyktig investeringshus som Rieber & Søn vurderer både nye og eksisterende investeringer. I tillegg har de vært veldig hyggelig å bli kjent med de ansatte. Vi ble tatt godt imot fra dag én, og det har vært lav terskel for å be om hjelp dersom det har vært noe vi har lurt på. I tillegg har sosiale middager bidratt til å skape et godt arbeidsmiljø, og det har vært veldig god stemning blant oss interns.

Vi takker for en veldig fin sommer!

Hilsen,

Rieber & Søn investerer ytterligere i forsikringsbransjen

Rieber & Søn investerer ytterligere i forsikringsbransjen 500 333 Rieber & Søn


Rieber & Søn investerer ytterligere i forsikringsbransjen

Rieber & Søn har i dag sammen med enkelte andre indirekte og direkte aksjonærer i WaterCircles Forsikring ASA («WaterCircles») kjøpt ut agentselskapene til WaterCircles i en transaksjon som priser agentselskapene til i overkant av 300 MNOK på selskapsverdi-basis. Dette sikrer videre vekstkapital for forsikringsselskapet.

WaterCircles har gjennom 2020 og inn i 2021 hatt en sterk vekst i nysalgsvolumer, noe som i sin tur har medført en sterk vekst i premieporteføljen. I 2020 alene var veksten i premieporteføljen på over 30%, og har nå passert en halv milliard kroner. Til tross for den veksten har skadevolumene holdt seg lave i perioden. Forsikringsporteføljen som i hovedsak er fordelt på privatkunder i Norge og Sverige fremstår som svært sunn.

For å sikre WaterCircles solvenskapital til videre vekst og å utbedre den nåværende solvenssituasjonen har WaterCircles inngått en avtale om å selge sine agenter (datterselskaper) til det nyopprettede selskapet Urzus Holding AS for i overkant av 300 MNOK på selskapsverdi-basis. Urzus Holding eies av Rieber & Søn sammen med enkelte andre indirekte og direkte aksjonærer i WaterCircles Forsikring ASA. WaterCircles vil etter transaksjonen ha en solvenskapitaldekningsgrad på over 200% og er godt kapitalisert for fortsatt vekst kommende år. Finanstilsynet har godkjent transaksjonen.

Det er inngått en 7-årig distribusjonsavtale mellom WaterCircles og agent-selskapene som nå erverves. WaterCircles er også gitt en tilbakekjøpsrett på selskapene på gitte priser innen 15 måneder. I sum gir dette en forutsigbarhet for både WaterCircles og agentselskapene som er overdratt.

Rieber & Søn vil gjennom sitt datterselskap SOIA II AS forbli største aksjonær i WaterCircles også etter transaksjonen, men vil ikke lenger være representert i WaterCircles’ styre. Investeringsdirektør i Rieber & Søn, Trond Valvik, har ikke deltatt i behandling av saken knyttet til salget av agentselskapene i styret i WaterCircles. Valvik fratrer sin styreposisjon i WaterCircles som følge av transaksjonen og går inn i styret i Urzus Holding AS.

Nåværende aksjonærer i Urzus Holding AS vil tilby øvrige aksjonærer i WaterCircles å bli aksjonærer i Urzus Holding AS og ta del i den økonomiske eksponeringen i det selskapet også, i den grad de ønsker det.

Carasent ASA has acquired Avans Soma

Carasent ASA has acquired Avans Soma

Carasent ASA has acquired the Norwegian company Avans Soma Holding AS, developer of leading medical record systems and IT solutions in the Norwegian health care market. 

We are very pleased to have completed this transaction as Avans Soma, with its strong presence in the Norwegian health care market, constitutes a foundation for our further establishment in Norway and other growth opportunities in new segments, says Johan Lindqvist, Chairman of the Board of Carasent.

Avans Soma is characterized by a large loyal customer base and stable market share growth during the last 15 years. This will provide a smooth access into the Norwegian health care market for Carasent.

An existing organization in Norway, with the solid knowledge and experience that we see within Avans Soma, is extremely important. It creates great value, in terms of being able to use existing technical systems integrations and solutions that Avans Soma provides today. Through its robust organization of 25 highly competent employees, Avans Soma will also offer tangible guidance regarding sales, support and consulting in the Norwegian market, he says and continues:

The wide range of contacts and business networks that Avans Soma developed over the past 15 years, in terms of customers and clients within the Norwegian healthcare market, private as well as public sector organizations, and partner relationships, represents an important strategic asset for the joint company. Avans Soma serves more than 140 customers, with a strong market share within the key segments.

The acquisition of Avans Soma and their products for social care and mental illness rehabilitation, results in a broadened product portfolio and the new collaboration enables Avans Soma to intensify its work towards offering SaaS-based services. Hence, there are strong organic growth opportunities both from the existing customer base and from winning new clients.

Avans Soma’s revenues and EBITDA was approximately NOK 24 million and NOK 6 million as per LTM Sep-2020, with an annually recurring revenue (“ARR”) of approx. NOK 21 million.

The agreed purchase price is NOK 122.5 million, corresponding to an enterprise value of NOK 125 million less Avans Soma’s consolidated net debt position of NOK 2.5 million (the (“Purchase Price”).

The transaction purchase price has been settled as follows:

–        50% of the Purchase Price in cash upon closing,

–        50% of the Purchase Price as shares in Carasent valued at a price of NOK 27.7 per share (the “Share Settlement”).

The majority shareholder of Avans Soma, Norwegian family office Rieber & Søn, will become a large shareholder in Carasent with approximately 2% of the outstanding shares following the transaction. All selling shareholders have entered into a lock-up agreement of 15 months on the Share Settlement.

DNB Markets acted as financial advisor to Carasent in connection with the transaction.
