· Is less than or equal to £300,000 then the Earn Out Consideration shall be £0; or
· Is more than £500,000, an additional amount payable shall be calculated as follows:
o (5x multiple of every £1 by which the EBITDA exceeds £500,000) multiplied by 50%
Under no circumstances shall the Earn Out Consideration exceed £1,500,000
Executive Chairman, Joe Grimmond, said: “This acquisition further reinforces our focus on niche, specialist operators in the plastics sector.
Alma operating from its freehold Runcorn premise is very well invested in state-of-the-art sheet extrusion, volume vacuum forming and one of the most advanced computer-controlled printing facilities in the industry.
Alma with its BRC grade and ISO 9000 quality certifications can operate across a wide range of sectors including food packaging and personal care as examples.
This acquisition broadens our Groups product and manufacturing offering and greatly expands our available market opportunities.
We expect this acquisition will be earnings enhancing in its first year.”
