Cergy - France, 19 March 2013 – SPIE, the leading independent European technical service provider in the area of energy and communication, today announces the signing of an agreement for the acquisition by SPIE Nederland of IS&P (infrastructure services & projects) from KPN Group.
With over 600 employees based in Zoetermeer, Houten, Apeldoorn, Eindhoven, Rotterdam and Assen, IS&P has a turnover of more than 100 million euros annually. The takeover of IS&P enables SPIE Nederland, in combination with its existing activities and recent takeover of Gebr. Van der Donk, to offer a global service in the area of digital connectivity. Lei Ummels, CEO of SPIE Nederland declared “This acquisition satisfies SPIE's wish for a balanced presence in the industry, infrastructure and commercial real estate markets in the Netherlands. The technological know-how and the customer portfolio complement SPIE Nederland's current activities. IS&P will form the basis of a new division within SPIE Nederland: SPIE-ICS (SPIE-Integrated Connectivity Solutions)”. John van Vianen, director of KPN Business segment, said “We found SPIE to be a good takeover partner for our business unit IS&P. IS&P will be able to develop a far broader spectrum within SPIE and thereby continue to offer high quality services to KPN customers in the future. This sale of the infrastructure activities fits in with our strategy of focussing increasingly on the core activities of KPN Business segment, enabling us to provide our customers with total IT solutions in collaboration with selected partners”. This takeover is subject to the approval of the NMA and to the positive advice of the Works Councils of IS&P and SPIE Nederland. Profile IS&P
