Paris, October 7th, 2022,
DDA & Company advises Steliau Technology shareholders on an external growth operation with the acquisition of InterDipros through its operational Italian subsidiary Special-Ind.
Several months after the acquisition of Special-Ind (completed in March 2021) and Media Microcomputer in Spain (March 2022), Steliau Technology keeps on consolidating the European market of electronic solution value-added supply and announces another move with the integration of the Italian company InterDipros.
Interdipros generated sales of €4 million in 2021 and should achieve sales of € 5 million in 2022. This non-intermediated transaction will help the Group speed up its business in this country with sales expected to reach € 77 million for the current Fiscal Year and € 85 million in 2023.
Interdipros has ten employees and benefits from a certified clean room dedicated to the assembly, integration, and customization services of the solutions according to the technical needs of its customers. Interdipros mainly specializes in the value-added distribution of sensors for touch screens as well as cabling solutions on behalf of customers involved in a large variety of industries.
Graziano Quaggio, CEO of InterDipros, will remain fully operational. Benefiting from positive market trends, the Group aims to continue on its strong growth track both in France and abroad and should achieve consolidated sales of € 140 million in 2022 vs. € 39 million in 2019.
“The rationale for this operation is based on the integration of the design and integration capabilities of Interdipros in order to offer them to Special-Ind’s customer portfolio in Italy.” explains Pascal Reynoud, CEO of Steliau Technology.
Massimo Loche, CEO of Special-Ind, said: “We will generate commercial synergies by offering Interdipros’ customers a wide range of screens supplied by Special-Ind.”
Bertrand Tissot, Partner at B & Capital, commented: “We are delighted to support Steliau Technology’s management team in concluding this third non-intermediated add-on acquisition, which enables the Group to further expand internationally.”
