Nolato completes acquisition of US-based GW Plastics
Nolato has completed the acquisition of US-based GW Plastics. The company has annual sales equivalent to around SEK 1.8 billion, with an EBITA margin of around 7%. The acquisition price, including contingent consideration, is estimated at approximately SEK 2 billion. The interim report for the third quarter will provide a full acquisition analysis.
The company is being consolidated as of 1 September. Just over four-fifths of GW Plastics’ business will be reported under the Medical Solutions business area, with the remainder reported under Industrial Solutions. The transaction is expected to have a marginal positive effect on Nolato’s earnings per share for the current year.
The acquisition is being funded using own cash funds and new credit agreements.
The acquisition means Nolato has a solid global position on the three key continents of Asia, Europe and North America.
