Imtech has signed an agreement for the acquisition of SPIE UK for the purchase price of around €50 million ($50m).

The transaction will generate an estimated exceptional loss of around $80m against the Group's annual net income for 2022 and will not have any impact on the adjusted net income. This transaction will have a positive impact on the Group's net debt estimated at around $40m.

The closing of the transaction is expected before the end of 2022, subject to the fulfilment of customary regulatory approvals.

This acquisition aligns with our strategic objective to expand our UK operations

The acquisition of SPIE UK will complement and enhance Imtech’s current offering with a range of speciality services in industrial instrumentation, cleanrooms, and life safety solutions. It also supports elements of Imtech’s 2026 strategy including increasing turnover with long-term revenue streams and expanding the business in targeted sectors such as Education, Industry and Infrastructure.

SPIE UK achieved a turnover of £200m in 2021 and has a dedicated workforce that will add a further 1,800 experienced and customer-orientated employees to Imtech.
