Italian Exhibition Group S.p.A., a leading company in Italy in the organization of international trade fair events and listed on Euronext Milan, has executed an investment agreement with Dr. Luciano Malgaroli and therefore it has acquired 51% of the share capital of A&T S.r.l., a Turin-based company that owns and organizes the A&T – Automation & Testing trade fair event, which will reach its 18th edition next February.
A&T was established in 2007 as a trade fair dedicated to Testing and Measurement and, in synergy with the main reference authorities and institutions, over the years it has developed a wider project dedicated to further sectors (Smart Manufacturing, Smart Logistics, Testing & Metrology, Process Control, Production Control, Additive Manufacturing), extending also to the north-east of Italy through the A&T Vicenza trade show event.
The remaining 49% of A&T S.r.l. is subject to a put-and-call option mechanism that will allow Italian Exhibition Group S.p.A. to acquire 100% of A&T S.r.l.’s share capital over the next three years.
A&T and Dr. Luciano Malgaroli have been assisted by LMS Studio Legale, with a team composed by the partner responsible for the Turin office Luca Mastromatteo together with the associate Salvatore Calì, while Italian Exhibition Group S.p.A. has been assisted by Marco Boldrini, partner of Studio Boldrini Pesaresi.
