Digesting acquisitions after Chinese hiccup

QuickView | Pharmaceutical & healthcare | 09/11/2016

Stratec, a designer and builder of automated OEM diagnostic systems made two acquisitions during 2016. The first (from April), was Diatron, a leading Hungarian OEM manufacturer of differential haematology analysers; 2015 sales were €34m. The second (from July), was DADC, now Stratec Consumables (SC). SC (which is Austrian) designs and manufactures precision consumables for high-end diagnostic systems; 2016 sales may be €17m. Core Stratec sales in 2016 will be affected by a slowdown in China. Guidance is for total 2016 sales of €175-182m and €205-220m in 2017. 2016 EBIT margin should be 16-17% rising slightly in 2017.
