Jotron announces that it has signed a contract with Zenitel for the sale of the Jotron Phontech portfolio. This contract is structured as a two-step transaction with a closing subject to the fulfillment of the conditions. Located in Horten, Norway, the Phontech portfolio is specialized in intercom and PAGA solutions for the Maritime and Oil & Gas markets. The Phontech portfolio is currently integrated in Jotron and the transaction will be structured as an asset deal.
Over the past few years the Air Traffic Control (ATC) market has developed at a fast pace and Jotron is involved in an extensive number of global projects. The core technology and products within the ATC radio, recorder, GMDSS and AIS safety segments is where Jotron will increase its future focus.
Merete Berdal, Managing Director at Jotron is pleased with this agreement. “As a consequence of the demand in growth in the ATC market, and in the interests of maintaining a world leading company for maritime safety products, Jotron decided to look for a new owner for our Phontech portfolio. Zenitel is the natural choice. We believe Horten will gain an even stronger position by combining two major Intercom and PAGA providers into one world leading player,” says Merete Berdal.
“Phontech is a dynamic and flexible business organization, specialized in Intercom and PAGA solutions to the Maritime and Oil & Gas markets. This strategic acquisition will strengthen Zenitel’s position as a world-wide market leader for intelligent critical communication solutions in the Maritime industry,” says Kenneth Dastol, CEO at Zenitel.
Both parties expect the contract to be closed before the end of 2018.
