Sdiptech acquires Multitech Site Services Limited

As of today, Sdiptech completes the acquisition of Multitech Site Services Limited. The agreement to acquire was originally entered into and communicated on 29 December 2017.

Multitech provides temporary infrastructure, with a primary focus on the metropolitan area in London. The company offers services to construction sites including temporary electricity, data, plumbing, fire safety, evacuation and fuel supply. During the financial year ending October 31, 2017, net sales amounted to approximately GBP 10.4 million and operating income to approximately GBP 1.9 million.

Sdiptech's total revenue, on an annual basis after the acquisition, amounts to approximately SEK 1,407 million and EBITA on an annual basis to approximately SEK 194 million. For companies that have been under Group ownership for less than a year, the latest annual accounts have been added to the Group's earnings from other companies, based on their outcome in the past four quarters.

Jakob Holm, CEO, Sdiptech, comments:

"Multitech has delivered successful projects for many years in temporary infrastructure. The company's focus correlates very well with Sdiptech's, with a good mix of customers in both the public and private sectors. With the acquisition of Multitech, we take an additional step in our strategy to expand to London and the UK."

Guy Scilly, CEO, Multitech Site Services, comments:

"I am very pleased to welcome the Sdiptech group as the new owners of Multitech. I like their business philosophy and the shared values that we hold. I am in no doubt that their expertise and network will enable further growth for the business going forward."

The company is valued at GBP 11 million on acquisition, and the total purchase consideration, including future performance-based additional purchase considerations over four years, will reach a maximum of GBP 14.3 million, which requires very good growth in the operations. In connection with today's acquisition, GBP 7.75 million was paid in cash, while the remaining amount will be recognized as a liability in the Group's consolidated accounts.
