Wednesday, March 02, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

FREMONT, Calif. - EFI today announced that it has acquired Rialco® Limited, one of Europe's leading suppliers of dye powders and color products for digital print and industrial manufacturing industries.

Based in Bradford, UK, Rialco will now operate as part of EFI's industrial inkjet business, and will continue to work closely with and support its existing clients as well as expand and grow its capabilities with new products and new customers. EFI plans to improve its inkjet portfolio with Rialco's advanced ink component capabilities.

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed, but the deal is not expected to be material to EFI's Q1 or full-year 2016 financial results.

"The deal announced today gives EFI the platform to accelerate the technical advantages we provide to customers in the textile, signage, ceramics and other industries that are rapidly transitioning from analog to digital printing," said Stephen Emery, vice president of EFI's ink business.

"Being part of EFI gives us an important opportunity to continue growing our offerings as part of a leading developer of advanced industrial ink products," said Paul Davies, a Rialco co-founder and current director of EFI | Rialco.
