Press release: ICT gains significant scale in industrial automation

ICT Group (ICT) announces that today it has signed a letter of intent to acquire 100% of the shares of Nozhup, a Dutch based industrial automation services provider. With the intended acquisition ICT gains significant scale in its activities in the industrial automation market. At the same time it considerably widens ICT’s customer base in this market. Nozhup will immediately contribute to the profitability of ICT. On a full year basis the acquisition will substantially enhance the earnings per share. Nozhup is a well-respected industrial automation project and services provider, founded in 2003, which employs around 90 highly educated professionals. Nozhup delivers projects, services, project management and consultancy in process control and instrumentation engineering. Furthermore it provides design and implementation of control software and hardware and systems integration of technical installations. The company has a focus on both the industrial markets, mainly in the sectors machinery and chemicals, as well as the infrastructure market. NOZHUP’s diversified customer base is largely complementary to ICT’s customers. Nozhup realizes profitable revenues of around EUR 9.5 million per annum. ICT has already taken a number of steps to gain scale in the Industrial Automation markets, both organically as through acquisitions. With the intended acquisition of Nozhup, ICT is well on track to deliver on its ambition to become one of the largest Industrial Automation players in the Netherlands addressing the global themes Smart Industries and Smart Cities. Jos Blejie, CEO of ICT: “This is a very important step in the roll out of our Industrial Automation strategy. Combined we have the scale and strength and above all the skills, to be leading in the Industrial Automation markets. I am convinced of the cultural fit and I am delighted to welcome all Nozhup employees, For the ICT Group this acquisition marks another milestone in our road map to become a leading total technology solutions provider.” For multiple years Nozhup and ICT already worked together on a regular basis and therefore know each other quite well. The two companies share the same type of culture. The quality of work, education of staff and knowledge of the various sectors is similar. Nozhup will operationally work closely together with ICT’s Industrial Automation business unit. The founders of Nozhup will remain involved as advisors. The purchase consideration comprises a cash payment and an amount in ICT shares. It is expected that the share capital will be diluted with approximately 450.000 shares (approximately 5% of total shares). The acquisition is expected to close in the third quarter.
