February 24, 2017 9:05am
Reamstown, PA, February 24, 2017 - dormakaba has completed the acquisition of certain Mechanical Security businesses from Stanley Black & Decker and has closed the transaction effective February 22, 2017, following satisfaction of customary closing conditions including the receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals. The transaction was first announced on December 21, 2016.
With this acquisition, dormakaba gains substantial scale in line with its stated strategy, evolving from a distant four to a strong number three player in the attractive North American market that can offer the full portfolio of door hardware and access control solutions to customers. In addition, the acquisition significantly enhances dormakaba’s prospects for further profitable growth, mainly through:
As previously announced, the transaction encompasses Stanley Commercial Hardware based mainly across North America and a production facility in Taiwan, as well as GMT in China. Full operational integration is expected to take up to three years. The dormakaba post-merger integration process in North America and in Asia is well advanced, thereby allowing for a successful integration of this important strategic acquisition.
With the closing of the transaction, Philip Bradney will join dormakaba and will take over managing responsibility for the acquired businesses in North America (his CV is available on www.dormakaba.com). Philip Bradney has decades-long experience in the industry. For over twenty years he held senior management positions at BEST Access Systems and then Stanley, guiding the company’s integration into Stanley Black & Decker until 2006. COO Access Solutions Americas Michael Kincaid: “We are pleased that Philip Bradney is joining our Americas team and are convinced that his extensive industry knowledge and integration experience will be a valuable asset for grasping the opportunities presented by this acquisition.”
The transaction is expected to be neutral to EBITDA margin of dormakaba from closing and accretive from full year 2019/2020 onwards, and immediately accretive to earnings per share. The acquisition implies a pre- synergies EV/EBITDA multiple of 13.8x on a 2016E basis (9x multiple post expected revenue and cost synergies to be achieved within four years, and tax benefits). The acquisition is fully debt financed by an increase in the existing syndicated bank credit facility.
