Acquisitions
Transas Group
In May, Wärtsilä acquired 100% of Transas, a global company headquartered in the U.K. Transas is a global market leader in marine navigation solutions that include complete bridge systems, digital products and electronic charts. The company is also a leader in professional training and simulation services, ship traffic control, as well as monitoring, and support.
The following tables summarise the preliminary amounts for the consideration paid for Transas, the cash flow from the acquisition, and the amounts of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed recognised at the acquisition date.

The preliminary fair values of the acquired identifiable intangible assets at the date of the acquisition (including technology, customer relations, and trade marks) amounted to EUR 55 million. The fair value of the current trade receivables and other receivables is approximately EUR 50 million. The fair value of the trade receivables does not include any significant risk.
The preliminary goodwill of EUR 113 million reflects the value of know-how and expertise in digital marine solutions and services. The acquisition takes Wärtsilä a significant step closer to achieving its mission of enabling sustainable societies with smart technologies. It will also speed delivery on the company’s promise to disrupt the industry by establishing an ecosystem that is digitally connected across the entire supply chain, through applications that are secure, smart and cloud-based.
During 2018 the Group incurred acquisition-related costs of EUR 3 million related to external legal fees and due diligence costs. The costs have been included in the other operating expenses in the consolidated statement of income.
Pro forma
If the acquisition had occurred on 1 January 2018, management estimates that the consolidated net sales would have been EUR 5,213 million. The impact in the consolidated operating result would not have been significant. In determining these amounts, management has assumed that the fair value adjustments, which arose on the date of the acquisition would have been the same if the acquisition had occurred on 1 January 2018.
Other acquisitions
In February, Wärtsilä acquired 100% of Trident B.V. and LOCK-N-STITCH Inc. In October, Wärtsilä acquired 100% of Burriel Navarro, S.L.
Trident B.V. is a Netherland based company specialised in underwater ship maintenance, inspection, and repair services. With this acquisition, Wärtsilä builds in-house competence, captures the full potential of services’ product synergies, and strengthens its position in the market.
LOCK-N-STITCH Inc. is an American engineering company serving customers within the marine and energy sectors as well as other industries. It specialises in cast iron repairs. The acquisition strengthens Wärtsilä’s service portfolio for customers operating multiple brands.
Burriel Navarro, S.L is a company operating in underwater services in the main ports of Spain. The acquisition supports the growth of Wärtsilä’s underwater services and expands the company’s local presence in the European market.
