Imtech completes sale of its Imtech ICT division to VINCI Energies

Thursday, 30. October 2014 07:31

Imtech announces the successful completion of the sale of the Imtech ICT division to VINCI Energies. The Imtech ICT division is divested at an enterprise value of 255 million euro. This divestment is an important part of Imtech's debt reduction programme.

The immediate cash proceeds from the divestment are 188 million euro and will be used for enhancement of the liquidity position and for the debt reduction programme. The difference between the enterprise value and immediate cash proceeds relate to a 26 million euro guarantee deposit, customary finance adjustments and transaction costs.

The required regulatory clearance from competition authorities has been obtained and the customary closing conditions have been satisfied.

In 2013, the revenue of the ICT division amounted to 740 million euro and 2,380 staff were employed. The divesture of the ICT division will not have an impact on Imtech's value proposition for customers. Automation expertise and know-how in the field of amongst others building automation, infrastructure automation, telecommunication, industrial automation and technical automation are an integral part of the offered value proposition of the other Imtech divisions.
