We are proud to have advised Cyient's management on this highly strategic transaction that strengthens their capabilities in the wireless space, and also expands their presence in Europe and across the globe. We believe that the trend of acquiring wireless technology companies will prevail and we will continue to see more M&A by both large- and mid-sized companies in the next couple of years."

The transaction was announced at an Enterprise Value of EUR 41 Mn. Celfinet reported revenues of EUR 17.1 Mn in 2021 with EBIT margins of 21.1% – implying a multiple of 12X EV/EBIT.
