MTL仪器仪表集团公司宣布收购Elpro的所有股份,Elpro是一家澳大利亚无线解决方案的开发者和提供者。总价1千2百万将由新银行机构支付,包括分别支付给银行和股东的负债:60万美元和50万美元。 Elpro是全球安全和可靠的无线解决方案提供商,主要应用在过程控制,制造业和行销市场。公司设计开发和制造一系列无线连接产品,用于接收和传送工业环境中的工厂信号。Elpro被公认为工业无线市场的领导者,因为其自主的创新技术,高性能产品和提供附加值的技术支持。 收购Elpro对于MTL是一个非常好的补充,Elpro在电子仪器的开发和提供方面以及通信工业和过程控制方面都是世界领导者。MTL的大部分设备用于危险的环境中,如石化、化工和油气产品工业。 在完成收购之后,Elpro的业务预期将通过MTL的现有渠道和OEM关系扩展其国际客户。也将改进Elpro的购买能力。收购Elpro,将补充MTL的公开控制成分,增加MTL系列产品的无线技术能力,方便终端用户寻找和在他们的厂房里添加更多测量点,而不用花费额外的费用,做额外的配线。 在2006年6月30日,Elpro达到三百四十万欧元销售额,实现税前利润50万欧元。Elpro总资产在2006年6月30日为三百六十万欧元,领导们相信这次的收购将增加第一季度的收入。 MTL将收购三个实体—Elpro国际有限公司(控股公司),Elpro技术公司(澳大利亚营业公司和Elpro技术LLC(美国经营实体)。现存的管理团队强烈支持MTL收购计划。 MTL首席执行官Graeme Philp说:“我们非常高兴能够收购Elpro,无线技术是信号数据通信层在现代化控制工厂里是一个重要的部分。MTL已经为成为通信层零件的提供者作准备了。对于Elpro的附加值,我们提供相互连接解决方案,运用的主要技术包括传统的模拟,现场总线,工业以太网,无线光电技术。这次收购加强了MTL在这一重要领域的成长。” original text [COLOR=#708090]The MTL Instruments Group plc acquires Elpro International for £12m The MTL Instruments Group plc (“MTL”) announces the acquisition of all the shares in Elpro International Pty Ltd (“Elpro”), an Australian based developer and supplier of wireless solutions, from the Queensland Development Fund and Directors of Elpro. The total consideration of AUD$28.5m (£12.0m) will be paid from new banking facilities. The consideration includes repayment of bank and shareholder loans of AUD$1.5m (£0.6m) and AUD$1.1m (£0.5m) respectively. Elpro is a leading global provider of secure and reliable wireless solutions for applications in the process control, manufacturing and utility markets. The Company designs, develops and manufactures a range of wireless interconnect products that receive and transmit plant data in industrial environments. Elpro is recognised as a leader in the industrial wireless market for its innovative and proprietary technologies, high-performance products and value-added technical support. The industrial wireless market has been characterised as a specialised niche market until recently, with independent research houses predicting high growth as wireless technology matures in the process control and automation sectors. Elpro is an excellent complementary fit with MTL, which is a world leader in the development and supply of electronic instrumentation and protection equipment for the process control and telecommunications industries. The majority of MTL’s equipment is used in hazardous environments such as the petrochemical, chemicals and oil and gas production industries. Following the transaction, it is expected that the Elpro business will be able to extend its international customer base by leveraging MTL’s existing sales channels and OEM relationships. It will also improve Elpro’s purchasing power. Bringing Elpro into MTL will complement MTL’s Open Control Components portfolio and add wireless capability to MTL’s product range as end-users seek to add more measurement points on their plants without incurring the expense of extra wiring. In the year to 30 June 2006, Elpro achieved a pre-tax profit of AUD$1.2m (£0.5m) on sales of AUD$8.2m (£3.4m). The gross assets of Elpro as at 30 June 2006 amounted to AUD$8.6m (£3.6m). The Directors believe that the acquisition will be earnings enhancing in the first year of ownership (note). MTL will be buying three entities – Elpro International Pty Ltd, the holding company, Elpro Technologies Pty Ltd, the Australian based operating company and Elpro Technologies LLC (USA) the US based operating entity. The existing management team have strongly supported the acquisition by MTL and have been retained by the company. Graeme Philp, MTL’s Chief Executive, commented ; “We are delighted to have been able to acquire Elpro. Wireless Technology is forming an increasingly important part of the signal and data communication layer on modern process plants. MTL is already a leading supplier of components for this communication layer and now, with the addition of Elpro, we can provide interconnect solutions using all major technologies, including traditional analogue, Foundation Fieldbus ® , Industrial Ethernet, Optical and Wireless. This acquisition positions MTL well for continued growth and success in this important area.”[/COLOR]
