Acquisition of Life Material Technologies
HeiQ announced the acquisition of Life Material Technologies, Hong Kong, (LIFE) on 15 June, a move which will strengthen its antimicrobial technologies platform. The initial consideration is $6.45m with a potential earn-out consideration payable in 2022 of up to $2.8m. LIFE’s antimicrobial technologies are applicable not only to textiles, with some notable retailers in its customer base, but also to polymers and other coatings, thereby complementing HeiQ’s push into materials beyond textiles and supporting its ambition of becoming a global leader in materials innovation.
