Reading time ( words)

Celestica Inc. has completed its previously announced acquisition of Impakt Holdings, LLC (Impakt).

The acquisition of Impakt is anticipated to significantly enhance Celestica’s ability to provide customers with large-format, high-mix manufacturing solutions and expand Celestica’s presence in key geographies.

“This acquisition is well aligned to our company strategy of growing and diversifying our overall revenue and margin mix through targeted investments and acquisitions,” said Rob Mionis, President and CEO, Celestica. “Bringing Impakt’s capabilities into our capital equipment manufacturing business will provide us with new capabilities in the U.S. and South Korea. We welcome the 450 Impakt employees to Celestica and we look forward to working together to deliver added value to our customers.”

As previously announced, the acquisition was financed with available borrowings under our revolving credit facility, a substantial portion of which we currently intend to repay with the proceeds of an anticipated incremental term loan under our current credit facility later this month.
