    Schneider Electric versterkt haar positie in Turkije met de overname van Günsan Elektrik, een belangrijke Turkse speler in elektrische apparatuur

    Rueil-Malmaison (France), Aug 12, 2014 – Schneider Electric SE announced today that it has signed an agreement to acquire Günsan Elektrik, the second largest player in wiring device accessories serving residential and commercial buildings markets in Turkey

    Based in Istanbul and employing over 300 employees, Günsan Elektrik specializes in wiring device accessories. It has a wide offering including switches & sockets, miniature circuit breakers and fuse boxes. The company generated revenues of about TRY 100 million (c. €35 million) in 2013, with an EBITA margin slightly above the Group’s Buildings & Partner business.

    This transaction is in line with Schneider Electric’s strategy to focus on bolt-on acquisitions and further develop its presence in new economies through offers adapted to local markets. This acquisition is expected to be accretive on earnings per share from year one and to meet Schneider Electric’s Return on Capital Employed criteria by the end of the third year.

    The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals.
