Newspapers & Technology Magazine - - Vendor News -

Agfa Graph­ics in­tends to ac­quire the pre­press busi­ness of the pri­vately-owned Span­ish print­ing plate sup­plier Ipagsa In­dus­trial, Agfa an­nounced.

e trans­ac­tion ex­cludes the print­ing plate man­u­fac­tur­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in Barcelona, Spain. e print­ing plate vol­umes to be ac­quired will be partly in­te­grated in Agfa's global man­u­fac­tur­ing net­work and partly pro­cured from third-party sup­pli­ers.

It’s ex­pected that in 2019, this ac­qui­si­tion will con­tribute up to 30 mil­lion euro to Agfa Graphic’s top line with a dou­ble-digit

EBITDA, ac­cord­ing to Agfa.

'' is ac­qui­si­tion is an­other step in our strat­egy for prof­itable growth. Next to a signi cant in­crease of our pre­press top line, the ac­qui­si­tion will also help Agfa achiev­ing its EBITDA tar­get of 10 per­cent in av­er­age over the next few years. Ipagsa’s ex­pe­ri­enced team will con­tinue to op­er­ate un­der its own brand as a sep­a­rate en­tity, man­aged by its cur­rent owner, Lorenzo Fer­rari,'' says Ste­faan Van­hooren, pres­i­dent of Agfa Graph­ics.
