Congratulations to the folks at HostEurope and Intergenia on their recently announced transaction.
Information released by Oakley Capital indicates a transaction value of E 210MM and a run rate EBITDA of more than E 20MM putting the purchase multiple in the 10x or less range on run rate EBITDA. Given the amount of overlap between the two companies, we expect that, post integration, the contribution margin to be very high making this a highly EBITDA accretive transaction for HostEurope further pushing down their effective acquisition multiple.
Oakley reported a 36% IRR on their Intergenia investment.
