Integration of Hamworthy into Wärtsilä Ship Power has
started. Hamworthy will be divided into two business units,
Flow and gas solutions and Environmental solutions. The
acquisition will bring important growth synergies to
Wärtsilä in the offshore, marine gas applications and
environmental solutions markets. Wärtsilä's target is to

The total consideration for the company was GBP 381 million
(approximately EUR 455 million), while the net price was
GBP 326 million (approximately EUR 399 million) due to
Hamworthy's cash balance at closing. The consideration has
been fully paid.
The purchase price allocation is currently under
evaluation, with preliminary results indicating that the
identified intangible assets have a value of EUR 110-130
million. Intangible assets will be recognised on the
balance sheet as technologies, customer relationships and
trademarks. The preliminary evaluation indicates that
annual intangibles amortisation will be in the range of EUR
16-18 million. The transaction is estimated to create a
goodwill of EUR 280-300 million.
Hamworthy's financial performance is expected to exceed the
latest analyst consensus from the end of October 2011,
which indicated net sales of approximately EUR 280 million
and an operating result of 8% for the financial year ending
in March 2012.
Wärtsilä expects its net sales for 2012 to grow by 5-10%
and its operational profitability (EBIT% before
non-recurring items) to be 10-11%. These estimates take
into account the impact of the Hamworthy acquisition.
