    StormGeo to be acquired by Alfa Laval

    StormGeo, a global leader in weather intelligence software and decision support services, is announcing that Alfa Laval - a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling - will acquire StormGeo to accelerate their digital services offering and to add an important tool to the decarbonizing tool box offering, according to the company's release. Alfa Laval is headquartered in Lund, Sweden and has a 138-year history of growth and visionary innovation, with 16,700 employees globally. The company serves the Food & Water, Energy and Marine industries. It is listed on the Swedish stock exchange.

    StormGeo provides weather-centric services to more than 2,200 customers globally in a variety of industries, including shipping, energy and onshore industries such as healthcare, hospitality, insurance and retail. With extreme weather being the number one cause of business disruptions globally, the company’s site-specific forecasts, coupled with asset specific data, enable customers to safeguard people, assets and operations while minimizing downtime, improving ESG performance and saving fuel and resources. From 2018, StormGeo advanced decarbonization for its shipping customers by saving 2.1 million MT fuel, thereby reducing CO2 emissions by 6.2 million MT, or the equivalent of removing 1,342,000 cars from the road for one year.
     
    The purchase price amounts to approximately MNOK 3,630 on a debt and cash free basis. Closing is expected during Q2 2021, subject to customary conditions. StormGeo will become part of Alfa Laval’s Marine Business Division.
     
    The Private Equity company EQT invested in StormGeo in 2014, and during its ownership, StormGeo’s market and product positions were strengthened through digitalization and investments in six strategic add-on acquisitions, doubling customers, revenues and EBITDA.
