The acquisition of the largest field marketing provider in Australia and New Zealand, with around 250 employees, is immediately earnings accretive for DKSH.

Terry Seremetis, Head Business Unit Consumer Goods, DKSH, commented: "With the acquisition of Crossmark we strengthen our field marketing activities in Australia and New Zealand and expand our leading market position. We are proud to now offer clients an even broader service portfolio."

Andy Kirk, CEO of Crossmark Australia and New Zealand, added: "We are pleased to join DKSH Smollan and to become part of the largest field marketing provider in Asia Pacific. With the combined expertise of Crossmark and DKSH Smollan, we will offer clients even better services to increase the demand for their products at the point of sale."

Subject to completion of certain conditions precedent, closing of the transaction is expected in the first quarter 2020. DKSH will acquire Crossmark New Zealand, and DKSH Smollan will acquire the Australian entity. DKSH owns 51 percent of the joint venture with Smollan and will fully consolidate both entities.
