TKH boosts position in healthcare systems

TKH has reached agreement on the acquisition of 90% of the shares in Mextal BV, based in Nuenen. Mextal specialises in the delivery of total solutions in the healthcare sector. The company’s strategy is to offer various systems for observation, (acoustic) surveillance, image-based communications, social alarms and video care, integrated within a total concept.

The acquisition of Mextal strengthens TKH’s product portfolio of healthcare solutions. Mextal has its own technical service department and a 24/7 help desk. Mextal’s total solutions are among others marketed and sold under the brand names Mextal and Viedome. Mextal focuses on existing intramural healthcare facilities, as well as residential care businesses that offer extramural solutions enabling people to live longer independently at home.

Mextal has 24 employees (FTEs) and reports an annual turnover of more than € 5 million. The activities of Mextal will be part of TKH’s segment building technologies.

The acquisition of Mextal will have a positive impact on TKH’s earnings per share from the third quarter of 2011 onwards. TKH will finance the acquisition from existing cash in hand.
