Kapsch TrafficCom agrees to sell Spanish public transport business unit to
Kontron

Vienna, August 29, 2022 – The public transport business unit, bundled in
the group company “Arce Mobility Solutions”, is to be sold to the
technology company Kontron.

The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals. The agreed purchase
price is in line with management expectations.

The area of public transport is not part of the strategic core business of
Kapsch TrafficCom, therefore the company has decided to sell this business
unit.

Kapsch TrafficCom acquired the transportation division of Schneider
Electric in 2016. This included, among other things, activities in the
area of public transport (in particular ticket vending machines and access
control) in Spain. In fiscal year 2021/22, this division generated sales
of around EUR 11.2 million and employed more than 115 people.

For Kontron, the transaction represents a welcome opportunity to further
expand the existing business of Kontron Transportation Group in the public
transport segment. “Arce Mobility Solutions” will bring a complementary
extension of Kontron’s product portfolio, engineering capabilities and
will also strengthen the Group’s presence in the Iberian market, which is
already covered by the rail segment.

 

Kapsch TrafficCom is a globally renowned provider of transportation
solutions for sustainable mobility with successful projects in more than
50 countries. Innovative solutions in the application fields of tolling,
tolling services, traffic management and demand management contribute to a

in more than 25 countries and is listed in the Prime Market segment of the
Vienna Stock Exchange (ticker symbol: KTCG). In its 2021/22 financial
year, 4,220 employees generated revenues of about EUR 520 million.
