Addnode Group acquires software company 5D System and strengthens position within the real estate industry

STOCKHOLM, FEBRUARY 2, 2016 – Addnode Group acquires 5D System (5D Systemkonsult AB), a Swedish software provider of property management systems to the public and private sectors. The company had a turnover of SEK 21 million for the split financial year 2014/15 and an operating profit of SEK 4.0 million, an operating margin of 19 percent.

5D System will become a part of Addnode Group’s business area Design Management, which already today has a strong offering for the construction- and property management industry in areas such as BIM based project management, digital modeling and design archives.

- “We at 5D System are looking forward to get access to Addnode Group’s broad technology platform to further develop our customer offering. We especially see great potential within the BIM- and IoT area and that we together with Addnode Group can expand our geographical reach and presence”, says Mats Broman, CEO of 5D System.

- “The acquisition of 5D System strengthens our position within the areas of property management and facility management. 5D System will together with other companies in the Group be able to grow further and create new joint offers”, says Rolf  Kjærnsli, President of Addnode Group Design Management.
