IDS signs MOU to buy garment logistics provider Impac

Aug '06
Integrated Distribution Services Group Limited (IDS Group) announced its signing of a non-legally binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the acquisition of the apparel logistics business of Impac Logistics Services LLC and affiliates (Impac), a US-based third-party garment logistics provider.

Subject to satisfactory due diligence by IDS, the total consideration payable by IDS will consist of (i) US$35.0 million based on average adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for financial years ended 31 December 2004 and 2005 of Impac being approximately US$5.50 million as provided by Impac and net asset value transferred to IDS being not less than US$10 million and (ii) a maximum earn-out payment of US$7.5 million payable on achievement of certain EBITDA targets for each of the three years ending 31 December 2006, 2007 and 2008.

The consideration is expected to be payable over a period of two and a half years from completion. The parties intend that definitive agreements will be entered into by 30 September 2006. Mr. Chang said, “I am delighted at this strategic move to acquire Impac."

"This will give IDS immediate strong logistics presence in the United States. We see huge opportunities in export logistics for the garment industry between Asia and the US. It will also complement our extensive logistics infrastructure in Asia and positions IDS to develop end-to-end Supply Chain solutions to existing and newcustomer base.”
