  • UNITI expo 2016 Ready to Welcome Industry's Finest.

    With only a few days left to go until UNITI expo 2016, the trade show is preparing to make its second edition a great success. From June 14 to 16, leading companies and professionals will gather in Stuttgart (Germany) to explore the latest trends, ideas and products.

     

    Europe's leading trade show for the fuel retailing and carwash industries will be welcoming some 420 exhibitors from 37 countries, making UNITI expo a truly international event. The high demand coming from exhibitors has seen the exhibition space grow by an astonishing 40% - from 25,000 sqm in 2014 to this year's 35,000 sqm.

     

    For visitors, UNITI expo has become the best platform to learn about all the latest products and innovations. The organization expects to comfortably exceed the numbers of the previous edition with the latest online registration figures, which include over 100 nationalities, doubling those of 2014. Industry professionals only need to qualify and register online to be able to visit the trade show free of charge. UNITI expo has ensured the presence of visitors from all over the world by rolling out an exhaustive international marketing campaign.

     

    "The strongest argument in favor of visiting UNITI expo is that you can find out everything about the market in just three days – a complete overview in one single event," says Bruno Boroewitsch, co-founder and current co-organizer of UNITI expo.

     

    Apart from showcasing the latest products and innovations, UNITI expo is an ideal platform to examine what the present and future holds for the industry. In the three forums – International Forum, Carwash Forum, and Convenience Forum – industry leaders will discuss key topics and trends. All conferences and presentations which are not in English will be translated.

     

    The unique networking opportunities arising during the trade show will be accompanied by fine catering in the GenussGARTEN FOODCOURT of Hack AG – free of charge for all. In addition, and alongside other events organized by exhibitors, on the first night there will be a Networking Party for exhibitors and their guests.

  • Dover to acquire Wayne Fueling Systems Ltd.

    Acquisition expands Dover's position in the global retail fueling market

    Hamilton, OH, June 9, 2016 - Dover (NYSE: DOV) today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement under which the company will acquire Wayne Fueling Systems Ltd. ("Wayne"), which is owned by Riverstone Holdings LLC, for $780 million in cash. Upon close of the transaction, Dover's annualized retail fueling revenue will be $1.4 billion when combining Wayne's innovative product offerings with OPW and Tokheim. The collective retail fueling business features a comprehensive product set for all major regions of the world.

    Wayne is a global provider of fuel dispensing, payment, systems and aftermarket services for retail and commercial fuel stations.  Wayne's advanced payment and systems solutions position the company to capitalize on the emerging conversion of U.S. based fuel retailers to Europay, MasterCard and Visa ("EMV") chip security technology. Through its global network of distributors and service partners, Wayne's products are sold and supported in over 140 countries.  Wayne is headquartered in Austin, Texas, and has manufacturing operations in Austin, Sweden, China and Brazil.

    "We are extremely excited about the acquisition of Wayne," said Robert A. Livingston, President & Chief Executive Officer of Dover. "Wayne's product line fits perfectly with OPW and Tokheim, particularly Wayne's US dispenser, payment and systems businesses.  Together, the collective business will offer an end-to-end solution that will benefit our customers in the growing global retail fueling market.  The addition of Wayne positions Dover to more fully participate in the high growth EMV upgrade cycle underway in the United States.  This transaction also provides significant margin enhancement opportunities, driven by synergies across the businesses."

    The transaction, which is expected to close in the second half of 2016, is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions, including applicable regulatory approvals. The transaction is expected to be funded with a combination of cash on hand and incremental debt.

    Annual revenue for Wayne in 2016 is estimated to be approximately $550 million. The purchase price multiple is approximately 10 times 2016 expected EBITDA, not including the estimated annual run-rate synergies of approximately $30 million which are expected to be achieved over a three year period.  In 2016, Dover expects the transaction to be dilutive to continuing earnings per share, including normal transaction-related costs, purchase accounting and related interest expense, subject to timing of the close of the transaction.  The transaction is anticipated to be modestly accretive to continuing earnings per share in 2017, due to the one-time costs to achieve synergies, and including normal purchase accounting amortization and related interest expense.  The company will update the earnings impact of this transaction upon closing.

    Lazard is serving as Dover's exclusive financial advisor and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP is serving as Dover's legal advisor.
