Coor acquires R & K Service in Norway

Coor today signed an agreement regarding the acquisition of Norwegian company R & K Service AS, which delivers cleaning and restaurant services. R & K Service has 130 employees with annual sales of some SEK 80 M. The acquisition strengthens Coor’s offering in cleaning and restaurant services and increases Coor’s geographical coverage in the Stavanger region. 

The purchase consideration (on a cash and debt free basis) amounts to some SEK 65 M and corresponds to an EV/EBITA multiple of approximately 7x in relation to current EBITA, and approximately 5x when expected synergies have been realized in 2022. The acquisition is financed entirely within the framework of Coor’s existing financing.

“The acquisition of R & K Service expands Coor’s Norwegian operations in line with our growth strategy and further strengthens Coor’s position as the Nordic market leader in IFM,” commented AnnaCarin Grandin, CEO and President of Coor.

“R & K Service has demonstrated strength during the challenging conditions of the pandemic and is a close fit with Coor’s Norwegian portfolio. This is a well-run family business that contributes to improving our geographical coverage in Norway further, which benefits both existing and new customers,” commented Nikolai Utheim, CEO at Coor Norway.
