ST Engineering has announced that further to its announcement made on 27 March 2019, its subsidiary Singapore Technologies Engineering (Europe) Ltd has today completed the acquisition of a 100% ownership in Newtec following the fulfilment of completion conditions, including the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.

This Newtec acquisition, together with the recent acquisition of Glowlink Communications Technology, Inc, which possesses advanced satellite communications anti-jamming technology, will enable ST Engineering to harness their unique capabilities to create a highly differentiated global satcom business group. ST Engineering is now in a stronger position to lead in innovation and the transformation of the satcom industry to enable Smart Cities globally.

To drive higher brand visibility, Newtec will be renamed as ST Engineering iDirect (Europe) NV.

The acquisition is not expected to have any material impact on the earnings per share of ST Engineering for the current financial year.
