Livingstone’s Business Services team has advised Biototal on its sale to MVI. Livingstone acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Biototal.

Biototal is a Cleantech market leader, creating sustainable solutions between the city and countryside by reusing waste. Founded in 2006, Founders Jan Nystedt and Tomas Kjellquist built their Company by putting farmers’ needs first to develop products and services for sustainable food production.

The Company offers its customers advice regarding plant nutrition, crop production, and supplies different products to address problem areas. Biototal is based in Vreta Kluster outside Linköping and is expected to generate approximately SEK 100 million (USD 12m) in 2020.

We felt confident in Livingstone’s team; they executed a structured process. Thanks to their extensive network, we managed to find the right partner for Biototal. MVI will accelerate Biototal to the next level and contribute to the Company’s culture – something that is vital to us,” shared Jan Nystedt, Founder and Owner of Biototal. “Livingstone understood what was important for us when introducing a new majority shareholder.

Biototal is an innovative company within an exciting and contemporary niche – circular plant nutrition. Through the Company’s Cleantech solutions, finite resources such as nitrogen and phosphorus are returned to the natural cycle, which is crucial in moving towards a sustainable society. Livingstone focuses strongly on the environmental sector, and we firmly believe that the ongoing consolidation will continue,” stated Marcus Åström, Associate Director at Livingstone.

This transaction continues Livingstone’s work within the environmental space, following the sale of San Sac Group to Sulo and the sale of Miljövision to Norva24.

Delphi was the legal advisor to Biototal during the sales process.
