Tekmar Group plc, a market-leading technology provider of protection systems for subsea cable, umbilical and flexible pipes and offshore engineering services, is pleased to announce that it has today signed a sale and purchase agreement for the acquisition of Subsea Innovation Ltd. The Proposed Acquisition is subject to shareholder approval.

The proposed acquisition represents the Group’s first transaction since its successful AIM admission in June 2018, launching the Group’s strategy to acquire offshore energy businesses which have a clear technology focus, have complementary customer bases and can leverage Group support. Subsea Innovation, which currently operates largely in the global oil and gas market will bring world-class engineering in the design, development and manufacture of back deck equipment and subsea pipeline repair clamps ("EPRC”) to Tekmar’s portfolio, along with a blue chip client list and a skilled engineering team.

James Ritchie, CEO of Tekmar Group plc, said: "When we floated on AIM we promised investors a dynamic business with a clear plan for the future. Today is just one part of the implementation of that plan and we are delighted to welcome Subsea Innovation into the Tekmar Group.

"As we continue through into 2019, you will continue to see us work towards our vision to become the partner of choice for the supply and installation support of subsea protection technology to the global energy markets. We will continue to put clients first and continue to innovate to remain at the forefront of the world’s offshore energy industries.”
