Sdiptech completes acquisition of Centralmontage i Nyköping AB

As of today, Sdiptech completes the acquisition of Centralmontage i Nyköping AB. The agreement to acquire was originally entered into and communicated on 7 December 2017.

Centralmontage provides complete electrical distribution cabinets as well as separate components. These distribution cabinets are used for low voltage distribution in large parts of society, including in shopping centres, properties, ports and small-scale industrial facilities. Net sales for the financial year 2016 amounted to approximately SEK 34.0 million and operating income to approximately SEK 3.9 million.

Sdiptech's total annual income after the acquisition amounts to approximately SEK 1,203 million, with an annual EBITA of approximately SEK 157 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:

"Centralmontage is a reputable player in its market, and complements the Group's current offering in the electrical automation niche. Consistently high precision of delivery and quality have generated stable growth and a favourable market position."

Ola Birath, President, Centralmontage i Nyköping, comments:

"Through Sdiptech, we gain natural partners, exposing us to new customer segments. Together, we will be a stronger player in the field of electrical automation both in terms of client offer and production capacity."


The company is valued at SEK 20 million at the time of acquisition, and the total purchase consideration, including future performance-based additional purchase considerations over four years, will amount to a maximum of SEK 27.7 million, given that growth in the operations remains favourable. In connection with today's acquisition, SEK 12.3 million was paid in cash, while the remaining amount will be recognized as a liability in the Group's consolidated accounts.
