Lectra has finalised the acquisition of all outstanding shares of Gerber Technology, on a cash-free debt-free basis, for EUR175m (US$213m) financed through a EUR140m loan and the Group’s available cash – plus 5m newly-issued Lectra shares to AIPCF VI LG, Gerber Technology’s sole shareholder.

The combination, of which all stages have now been completed, has led to the creation of an Industry 4.0 player for the fashion, automotive and furniture markets.

“We will now be in an even better position to support our customers throughout the world in accelerating the digital transformation of their operations.”

The acquisition, which was announced on 8 February, was approved by Lectra’s board on 25 March and by the company’s shareholders.

Founded in 1973, Lectra reported revenues of EUR236m in 2020 and is listed on Euronext (LSS).
