Exhibitions and conferences firm ITE Group has added a number of exhibitions in the Ukraine to its portfolio with the acquisition of Autoexpo.
Gross assets included in the transaction were $50k as at 24 November 2011. The portfolio of 10 exhibitions acquired generated revenues of $3m and pre-tax profits of $1m in the current calendar year. The acquisition is expected to be earnings enhancing in ITE's 2012 financial year.
ITE's chief executive officer Russell Taylor said: "The addition of this portfolio of exhibitions to ITE's Ukrainian business is consistent with our strategy of building market leading positions in core markets and sectors."
