IMI acquires EPIQ subsidiaries in Europe and Mexico

Integrated Micro-Electronics, Inc. (IMI) completed - on July 29, 2011 - the acquisition of four subsidiaries of EPIQ NV (EPIQ) in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Mexico.
These entities are involved in the design and manufacture of electronic and electro-mechanical systems and subsystems for diverse markets that include automotive and industrial equipment.

The purchase consideration of approximately EUR 43.5 million is made through a combination of a cash payment and 200 million new IMI shares representing approximately EUR 24.4 million or 12% of the common shares on a fully diluted basis. The cash component requires IMI to pay EPIQ EUR 4.8 million upfront and the balance over the next seven years.
