Acquiring Impact

IG Design (“Design Group”) have announced that they will acquire Impact Innovations Inc in the US. This is a strategically transformative deal which will create considerable operational and procurement cost savings as well as offering the potential for cross-selling existing IG product to Impact’s customer base and vice-versa. It also gives the combined business a presence and scale in the US which would justify further investment, both organic and as a consolidator of a fragmented regional market. At an acquisition multiple of 4.9x 2017 EBITDA compared to Design Group’s 12.4x, the deal also demonstrates management’s ability to identify good quality, strategic assets and execute their acquisition at an attractive price.
