KAP AG: Successful sale of the it/services Segment for strategic resasons and concentration on the core business

06/29/2021 | 10:00am EDT

Corporate News

  • Purchase price of around €22 million for growth financing
  • Systematic use of attractive M&A opportunities in the market
  • Outlook for 2021 confirmed: Revenue between €300 and 330 million and normalised EBITDA between €27 and 33 million (excluding it/services segment) at the upper end of the ranges announced

Fulda, 29 June 2021 - KAP AG ('KAP'), a listed SME holding company (WKN 620840, ISIN DE0006208408), today successfully completed the sale of its it/services segment. Following the sale of the subsidiary MEHLER Engineering und Service GmbH to its former management with effect as of 1 January 2021, KAP today signed an agreement on the sale of it-novum GmbH ('it-novum') to a company of Allgeier SE with effect as of 30 June 2021. The purchase price (enterprise value) is around €22 million and results in a multiple of 9.5 on normalised EBITDA.

Optimisation of financial leeway to expand the industrial core segments

Following this year's successful sale of properties at the Fulda site that are not strategically relevant, it has now been possible to realise the sale of it/services as the next step.KAP has now completed the sale of the it/services segment and thus implemented a core element of a KAP strategic initiative within the 'Accelerate' programme, which puts the focus of its investments even more strongly on high-margin industrial manufacturing companies in attractive niche markets. The proceeds received are to be used for targeted high-growth add-on acquisitions in the core segments.

Eckehard Forberich, Member and Spokesman of the Management Board of KAP AG: 'We are convinced that it-novum and its entire workforce can be very well integrated into Allgeier SE and optimally developed. We would like to expressly thank the management and the entire workforce for their hard work, which made a decisive contribution to the KAP Group's success in the past few years. By successfully selling the it/services segment, we achieved an important milestone in our medium-term strategy. There are currently increasingly attractive M&A opportunities for the KAP Group's industrial segments in the market, and we want to systematically exploit them.'

Management Board confirms outlook for 2021

Having concluded the transaction, the Management Board confirms its most recent forecast for the 2021 financial year, which was published in May and had already been prepared without taking into account the it/services segment's operating income. For the current financial year, the Management Board thus continues to expect consolidated revenue between €300 and 330 million and normalised EBITDA between €27 and 33 million (excluding the it/services segment) at the upper end of the ranges announced. The forecast includes already foreseeable risks that may still result from the COVID pandemic.
