Halma plc ('Halma' or the 'Group')




Halma, the global group of life-saving technology companies focused on growing a safer, cleaner and healthier future, today announces that it has acquired Static Systems Holdings Limited ("Static Systems"), based in Wolverhampton, UK.

Static Systems is a designer, manufacturer and installer of critical communication systems, which are central to UK healthcare trusts' patient care infrastructure. Its technology enables hospital patients to alert healthcare specialists in an emergency, protecting lives and increasing the response time of care provided.

The cash consideration for Static Systems is £37m, on a cash and debt free basis, which will be funded from Halma's existing facilities. Static Systems' unaudited revenue for the twelve months to the end of November 2020 was £20.1m2, with return on sales broadly in line with the lower end of the Group's range.


Andrew Williams, Group Chief Executive at Halma, commented:


"Static Systems is highly aligned with our purpose and further extends our communications presence across multiple healthcare settings. In addition to opportunities for growth in international markets and through deeper clinical and technological integration, it is envisaged that Static Systems will provide a route to the UK healthcare market for certain existing products and services within Halma's Medical sector, including CenTrak's Real-Time Locating Systems."
