The CEO of Swedish biometrics firm Fingerprint Cards has said acquiring new companies could help FPC grow quicker.Speaking to Bloomberg, Christian Fredrikson said FPC would look to acquire technology, businesses or competence outside its own core mobile business.”In the area we're now in, we have a good position, but surely in new segments we have to look at our position,” he said. “I always consider M&A. There are companies, absolutely, but we'll have to consider if it's the right strategic fit.”The article notes that FPC's main focus now is in so-called smartcards, which for example allow banking customers to use their cards without PIN codes. While margins on existing products may face pressure from rivals, Fingerprint's goal is to add new legs to the business to stoke growth.Norwegian fingerprint sensor firm Next Biometrics saw its share rise 6.3 percent to 153 kroner on the speculation that it may be one of Fredrikson's targets.
