TRELLEBORG: Trelleborg acquires marine docking and mooring solutions company

Trelleborg has, through its business area Trelleborg Offshore &
Construction, signed an agreement to acquire Marimatech A/S, a
market-leading company in marine positioning and piloting systems,
primarily specializing in the development of software used for
docking or mooring ships offshore or in ports. The acquisition will
broaden and supplement Trelleborg's product portfolio within
berthing, docking and mooring solutions for ports and vessels.

The acquired company has its head office and production site in
Aarhus, Denmark. The company's global sales totaled approximately SEK
50 M in 2014. This bolt-on acquisition is part of Trelleborg's
strategy to strengthen its positions in attractive market segments.

"The acquired company has a successful navigation and ship positioning
product line using the latest 'smart' technology, which can be used
on other marine applications and integrated with our existing range
of products. This transaction will enable us to strengthen our
offering as an attractive turnkey supplier of marine docking and
mooring solutions for owners and managers of ports and vessels. Our
global footprint within docking and mooring will also provide
opportunities to expand the sales of the acquired company. The market
prospects for marine systems are favorable, particularly as
increasing vessel sizes and new requirements drive the need for a
smarter approach to port and terminal efficiency," says Fredrik
Meuller, President of the Trelleborg Offshore & Construction business
area.

The transaction is expected to be finalized in the fourth quarter of
2015.
