Royal Wolf Holdings, the ASX-listed container services firm that won an award for its initial public offering last year, has agreed to buy the container business of Auckland-based ContainerTech Group.
No price was disclosed for the transaction in Royal Wolf's statement to the ASX. ContainerTech has a fleet of about 500 hire containers and the acquisition will lift Royal Wolf's earnings immediately, it said.
Shares of Royal Wolf last traded on the ASX at A$2.11. The shares were issued at A$1.83 and began trading in May last year.
Its A$91 million share sale won an IPO of the Year award from FinanceAsia, selling at 14.1 times 2011 earnings, compared to a sector average of 11.4 times, according to the company's website.
