DGAP-Adhoc: Kontron AG acquires majority stake in Swiss company DIGITAL-LOGIC AG

Kontron AG / Miscellaneous 17.09.2009 Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. =-------------------------------------------------------------------------- ð§ 78 percent stake in specialist for ruggedized computers ð§ 'Lucky Buy' expands product range in high-margin segments ð§ Revenue and earnings growth from sales and purchasing synergies Eching, Munich, September 17, 2009. Kontron AG has acquired a majority stake in the unlisted Swiss company DIGITAL-LOGIC AG, which is based in Solothurn. As the Eching-based computer manufacturer announced today, it has acquired 78 percent of the shares in the company (EUR 15 million of annual revenue, 100 employees), a takeover of 100 percent is intended. The purchase price amounts to a mean single-digit figure in the millions. DIGITAL-LOGICAL specializes in compact, 'rugged' embedded boards and systems. These particularly robust computers are used in highly sensitive applications in areas that tend to be independent of the economic cycle such as government, transportation and medical technology. The compact systems allow Kontron to access a new and complementary technology, thereby supplementing Kontron's product portfolio in these high-margin market segments. This move also allows Kontron to extend its presence in the central European region, and the company anticipates further gains in market shares: in addition, and in particular, contributions are also expected to result from synergy effects generated by its integration into Kontron's international sales network, and the improved purchasing terms DIGITAL-LOGICAL will benefit from.
